A Message from Dr. Mike Palompo, D.Min.

The Heart of NHCO’s Transformation Academy (formerly known as Transformation Institute)

We realize that we will not be able to address all the critical issues of following Jesus in our weekend services. So what is NHCO’s strategy to help us become fully mature, fruitful disciples of Christ?  The Transformation Academy!  Our academy is based on the Lord’s design for the Temple.  Why?  Because the Temple is God’s revelation on how He wants to dwell within our hearts. Every step of growth can only happen by God’s loving presence and power.  Thankfully, WE are the Temple of His Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 3:16)! So how did God design us to experience His Presence?  Here’s the overall view:

Station 1: Bronze Altar: Salvation.
Station 2: Bronze Basin: Sanctification.
Station 3: Golden Table of Bread: Scripture
Station 4: Golden Lamp: Service in Ministry
Station 5: Golden Altar of Incense: Spirit-Inspired Prayer
Station 6: Ark of the Covenant: Spiritual Leadership
Station 7: Mercy Seat: Great Commission

Each of these stations holds keys to how we carry His presence, hear His voice, and transform into someone who is like Jesus.  You could say our Transformation Academy uses the Temple as a template for how we temple His Spirit!  So buckle your seat belt, pilgrim! We’re going on an odyssey to…

“Deep intimacy with God and wide impact to the world.”
