The Heart of the School

The School of Sonship is a 2 week school that has come out of the journey we have been on at YWAM Oxford. The journey of learning who our Heavenly Father is and then from this revelation living as his beloved sons and daughters. The Father is revealing to the church his love and rest and we are finding contentment to be who we truly are. He is calling us home, out of our own works and into his rest. That we would know we are dearly loved and valued with a wonderful inheritance that can’t be earned. We want to share this revelation with others and invite you to join us on this journey into the Father’s Love and into our sonship.

Who is it for?

The School of Sonship is a multigenerational school for all age groups. In fact we like to think that ‘sonship’ is best seen when the generations come together. There are activities that will stimulate the adventurous and young at heart and also activities for those with a love towards the creative arts. But the message cuts across all cultures and generational groups – you are ‘loved’ and you have a Father who is interested in you.

What does the School look like?

The school is full of teachings about experiencing the Father’s love, learning who He is as a Father, and restoring the image of God. The school get to go on an adventure to Waipara Adventure Centre, here we particpate in activities that encourage, freedom, fun and stepping out of our individual comfort zones. Activities are catered to all age groups and level of adventure. All these activities are about learning to live in increasing freedom and being ‘childlike’, as that is  what the journey of sonship is.

Accommodation

For younger people accommodation is usually sharing with a few others and when needed we use bunk style accommodation.

School Leaders & Staff

James Smith • 42

Hi there my name is James Smith and I'm married to Carolyn and we have 5 wonderful boys - Titus, Zephyr, Leeland, Samson, and Moses. Carolyn is captivated by the Arts and is always working on a creative project. I love the outdoors and sport; especially rugby league and cricket.

I started the School of Sonship because I wanted people to experience what I did. I was a driven Christian, hard on myself and others, believing that I had to prove myself. No amount of discipline or effort ever seemed enough. In 2011 I met the Father and his love at YWAM Oxford in the Fathers Love DTS. I began to see that I had become like the 'older brother' in the story of the Prodical son. I was 'slaving away' for my Father believing that he only wanted my service. I have since spent 6 years getting to know a Father who loves me and and who has a wonderful inheritance for me that can't be earn't. My heart is that others will meet this Father and begin to live as his sons and daughters.
