Coaching/Courses

Coaching

Our coaching program involves a two-year commitment. All of the below listed courses are included in your package.

What you will discover on this two-year Journey:

  1.  A leader’s spirit must be developed in hearing the Lord ‘s voice. As spiritual leaders, this humble competence of hearing Him must be formed to rightly serve others.
  2. The spirit/soul distinction of Hebrews 4:12 has not been emphasized, yet it is an essential understanding. Venture Heights provides practical and revelatory understanding to develop this necessary capacity so you can move out from your ‘spirit-union’ with Christ instead of your intellect alone.
  3. You will realize the clear indicators of a Biblically authorized leader. This understanding will supply benefits for the rest of your life. To be able to discern a righteous spiritual leader from a false one is to produce blessings for you and all you are involved with.
  4. You will be given keys to nurture the leadership gifts in yourself and those you serve.
  5. You will see new aspects of the Lord’s purpose and His strategies for your assignment in His purpose.
  6. You will gain new friendships and it is our desire that for some, they will launch life-long joy and encouragement.
  7. I look forward to that new friendship with you.

The courses listed are designed to enhance your ability to hear the voice of the Lord. On this journey, we will fill in gaps that many church leaders do not know exist. As we address these gaps, you become far more competent in serving others out of your union with the Lord Himself. This ‘living union’ is essential since Jesus is to be the foundation of our lives.

Coaching Practical Details

When you enroll, you and I will begin a two-year journey together. 

  1. You will receive access to the courses. These can only be viewed in the sequence they are presented. You cannot view # 4, until you have watched #1-#3.  However, you will have access to the videos to watch them as often as you like.
  2. You watch the videos at your own leisure, however, our monthly conference calls will be covering material that is paced at 4-5 videos viewed/ month. You want to be up to date with the rest of those in your ‘team’.  (This two-year trek is quite a commitment. The videos are not long, but the discipline of watching requires a stewardship of your time. The process is part of the way the Lord strengthens you. I will be with you in it.)
  3. I will email  you links/codes for our monthly  conference calls. These are very encouraging. You will find the new relationships you gain to be a great blessing. We will determine the best time each month for the majority of the group to be live on the call. For those who cannot make a call, there will be a recording of it that you can access if cannot make that specific time. 
  4. On the call, you will share what insights/questions you have gained and we will dive deeper into the material together. This is the most affirming and deepening parts of our process. I will be with you on the calls and share any additional impacts that we need to emphasize.
  5. PLEASE NOTE: Any references to tests, quizzes, etc. are not necessary for you to deal with. We will keep each other on track with positive encouragements.
  6. If you have any questions, please send a message to: support@ventureheights.org.
  7. I am so glad you have chosen to join us on this effort. I look forward to getting to know you and standing with you into the future.

Courses

All courses are included with our two year coaching program. Courses may also be purchased individually.

IDENTITY IN CHRIST

The first course is extremely important. We have witnessed the most dramatic impact on people who have allowed the Lord to reveal this topic to their hearts. This foundational revelation sets the trajectory for our two years together. The fact that God chose you to be in His Son from before the foundation of the world is astonishing. The implications are phenomenal, and most believers know nothing of it at all. When you see this grace, your perceptions of the Father and your own life are moved into an unimaginable freedom.

HOLY SPIRIT

The distinction between soul and spirit MUST be discovered and engaged. The Lord is joined to us in the Spirit, not our mind. When you understand this, you begin to live out from that reality and heavenly life can intersect with your routine. 

THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM

This is the gospel of Christ’s government in the earth. Our view of the gospel tends to focus on going to heaven. If that is our emphasis, we lose the vitality of Jesus being the one who has been given “all authority in heaven and earth.” This course is not about a political agenda, yet the kingdom of God is not a neutral on the issues of life. These lessons will grant a new courage to step into places the world has tried to kick us out of.

THE PRIORITIES OF A NEW TESTAMENT PRIEST

Jesus calls us a ‘royal priesthood’ in Peter’s letter. This priestly role is filled with privileges and responsibilities. These include strategic intercession at international levels, realms of worship the church in the west rarely moves in, spiritual warfare and serving as a spiritual city council (ekklesia). This course will challenge and inspire new faith and courage in seeking the Lord.

LIFE-STRENGTHS

The study in Proverbs focuses on character, decision-making and relationships. The wisdom examined provides progress in tough times so that you are stabilized when others are confounded and dazed. You become a pillar of life for those you serve.

SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES

Discipline has become a non-issue in the life of many churches, yet we are called ‘disciples’ of the Lord. That is a word drawn from discipline. Again, we are looking into an area of study that has been ignored. This is not about some sort of legalistic efforts to gain the Lord’s approval, but about the kind of spiritually energized practices that position us into much more fruitful and powerful results in life.

APOSTOLIC LEADERSHIP – How God Solves Problems

This topic is one of the main reasons why this training exists. There is much misunderstanding and some abuses of the apostolic ministry. The Word is very clear about the genuine foundation of an apostle. Once we are clear on that, many other matters fall into place. Every book of the New Testament was written by the Spirit through an apostle. To see these insights is to provide a strength the Lord alone can supply, and He longs to grant it.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

We are opposed on three distinct levels. These are unavoidable if we are true followers of Jesus. Most churches are unaware of this matter the Spirit said, He “did not want us ignorant of”. We will examine some of the basic schemes of the devil and make it our aim to magnify the Lord as our victory in every session. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, and HE did it well.  Our armor is not given to us so it can be stored in some closet. We are to live in and consciously use the weapons of our warfare to overcome the enemy and his minions.

I have known Michael Massa since the late 1970’s, he has had a profound impact on my wife’s and my life. I have met few people over the past 40 plus years who have the intense integrity and joyful heart that Michael has. I have seen him stand in Godly grace in the best of time and in the most stressful and evil situations. His teaching is drawn out of a very deep well of wisdom that comes from a strong life of prayer and study of God’s word. I would walk through any spiritual battle with Michael.
