As a university, we are a family of disciple makers dedicated to following the ways of Jesus.
What is Ascent University?
At Ascent University, you will
PRESENCEDevelop intimacy and friendship with God. Press in to covenant connection through prayer and worship and a deep understanding of Gods original plan in the Garden of Eden.
PURPOSEBe fruitful and multiply. Be discipled and learn how to make disciples. Step out into Kingdom assignments from a place of foundational covenant.
There are three main pillars to ascending the mountain of God; presence, purpose, and plan. God’s original design in the Garden of Eden had all three of these things; intimate connection with the Father, a purpose to be fruitful and multiply, and the plan of taking dominion over the land which God had given man and woman. The covenant God made with mankind informed the work they did.
The same is true for us today. Our Kingdom mission is deeply rooted in our covenant relationship with the Father. To just choose one or two of these things will throw everything out of balance. We must, from a place of intimacy, walk out the purpose God has spoken over our lives with a Holy Spirit inspired plan to get us there.
Which takes us right back into His presence. We can do nothing apart from Him. His grace makes a way and sustains us. As we press into our plans we have to press deeper into His presence. Knowing Him more. Becoming more free. Living the way that God originally intended...which just pushes us further into our purpose and into plans and back into His presence. Presence, purpose, plan, repeat.
Grow through Coaching, Community, and Classes
Since the beginning, God has wanted us to be fruitful and multiply. We see it all over Scripture from the first blessing God gave creation (Genesis 1:28), to Noah being blessed after the flood, to God’s people in Egypt, the list could go continue. And now, the last thing Jesus said to His disciples before returning to heaven was to “go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20).” In other words, be fruitful and multiply.
Everywhere we look, we see that God’s heart is for fathers and mothers to be fruitful and multiply. At Ascent University, we take this call seriously. One of the most important aspects of Ascent University is coaching and discipleship; fathers and mothers coming around each student, equipping and guiding them further into the Fathers heart and into their calling.
Each student at Ascent will be assigned to a coaching group where you will process what God is saying to you and how you will respond. In Hebrew, this is called shema; to listen, but also to obey in your actions. Our discipleship coaches will always point you back to the Father to hear what He is saying, helping you to learn how to hear God for yourself. This is listening and obeying.
