History - School of Discipleship

The foundation of the School of Discipleship was laid when K.P. and Gisela Yohannan answered the call of God into fulltime ministry back in the 70’s. Being young adults they were so impacted by the opportunity given to them to do something for the Lord. It was from those early years of ministry that a foundation was laid for the School of Discipleship. The dream and vision to see hundreds of young people impacted with the call of God on their life to come and die to themselves and give all for the sake of Christ.

This same passion and commitment is what is seen throughout the ministry of GFA. The School of Discipleship has its purpose and value within GFA in the context of prayer and a passion to love the helpless in our generation with Christ’s love. Because of this, there is a clear focus on giving young people a chance to embrace Christ in a way that leaves them permanently changed.

As the School of Discipleship continues to grow and expand our vision is to see at least 200 students a year answering the call of God on their life to come and die to themselves for a year and embrace the Cross of Christ and follow Him the rest of their life.

We have already seen so many students come through the School of Discipleship and go out to serve the Lord all around the World in missions, full-time ministry, university and the workforce.

With two campuses, one in Texas, U.S. and the other in Ontario, Canada there is plenty of room to grow.



Watch Pastor David speak about his daughter attending School of Discipleship.

My relationship with God went from being a part of my life to the very essence of who I am.


God changed my heart, and got rid of bitterness, unforgiveness, pride and selfishness.
