Founded in 1996, incorporated in 1997 and located in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan,
Canada, the Fountain of Life School of Ministry was designed to provide the student with a sound Bible and Ministry education.
Initially, the vision was to provide accredited Christian education for the First Nations communities of northern Saskatchewan.
However, the student body has always been a mix of cultural backgrounds, including students from Africa, Japan,
various provinces of Canada and the First Nations of Saskatchewan.
The primary goal of FLSM is to offer practical training for ministry in order
to help students to know God in Christ better
and to prepare students to understand and perform
the various components of Christian ministry with confidence and competence. Development of new course offerings and programs
is ongoing. Training includes officiating at weddings, funerals, communion services, doing pastoral visitation, performing
pastoral clinical counsel in both street and prison setting, doing psychometric skill and education testing, delivering
sermons, performing baptisms and dedications, leading worship and Bible study, et al.Who and Where We Are
