ABOUT R.T.A. S.O.P.A.D.
(2 CHRONICLES 33)
"Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem: 2 But did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel. 3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. 4 Also he built altars in the house of the Lord, whereof the Lord had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever. 5 And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. 6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. 7 And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever: 8 Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses. 9 So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel. 10 And the Lord spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken. 11 Wherefore the Lord brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. 12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, 13 And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord he was God. 14 Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah. 15 And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the Lord, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the Lord, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city. 16 And he repaired the altar of the Lord, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the Lord God of Israel."
The R.T.A School of Prayer & Deliverance is a certificate program that consists of 8 modules, which takes approximately 2 years to complete. Upon completion, each student will receive a certificate of completion and have the option of overseeing a local RTA Prayer Ministry in their region (based upon the recommendation of RTA Staff and adherence to school policies and pre-requisites).
Each Module is 6-8 weeks in duration and consists of several modalities (lecture, video, written curriculum) for conveyance of course content. Presently the classes are taught virtually, and the school utilizes a virtual teaching platform for the housing of course curriculum. Students also access and complete course assignments online.
Instructors interact with students throughout the 8-week modules through weekly live (virtual) classroom sessions and within the student portal where assignments are accessed and reviewed.
Students are welcomed to also, complete the course on self-paced basis, which allows them to complete assignments as their schedule and lives allow. Self-paced students are also moderated by R.T.A. staff. Any individual who desires to take classes as offered on an individual basis for spiritual development, and do not desire certification as an R.T.A.-Trained Intercessor, is welcome to take classes on an “as-desired” basis. Note: All modules must be complete along with homework assignments in order to receive certification. Certification is only granted at the level of full completion of all curriculum and all modules.
Note: Repairing The Altar is not an accredited institution of higher learning, as of yet. Our courses do not offer any transference to other institutions of higher learning. Therefore, we do not guarantee that completing our curriculum will be recognized for future ministry, vocation or educational opportunities.
Repairing The Altar School of Prayer and Deliverance was birthed from what began as a 21-Day Strategic Prayer Bootcamp, which is hosted yearly by Pastor Kimberly Jones. In 2022, at the end of the 21 days of prayer, intercession, and teaching, Pastor Kimberly thought that it would be the end of her time with over 100 women who signed up for the course. Little did she know that it was just the beginning of something greater and more permanent.
The Lord spoke to her and instructed her to continue the 5am praying/teaching sessions with the women. She did so, without knowing where it all would lead. Several weeks beyond the original "21 Days", the Lord spoke. As "PK" was teaching the intercessors about "supplication" she referenced II Chronicles 33:13:
"And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord he was God."
For some reason, she could not shake the scripture and went back and began to read the entire chapter. Then she understood the assignment. She was to lead the intercessors into an understanding of supplication, as it related to brining restoration, sanctity and reverence back to the altar of prayer. Pastor Kimberly's heart began to burn with passion, as she understood that the ALTAR of PRAYER needed to be restored, just like it did in the story of Manasseh and his "awakening" moment of realizing that his dishonor of God's house and more specifically, His altar, had to be repaired and restored.
It was from this epiphany, that Pastor Kimberly received the revelation for the creation of Repairing the Altar School of Prayer and Deliverance. She then began the work of building. May 2021, the first Module had been written and students were enrolled. The first virtual class was held in that same month.
Since then the school has been growing in leaps and bounds. With the help of amazing instructors and support staff, Pastor Kimberly is sure that formal accreditation is in the near future for RTA School of Prayer and Deliverance.
We are those of the Christian faith who believe in Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and the son of God.
We believe in the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit(Matthew 28:19).
There is no other way by which man can be saved but through the name and person Jesus (Acts 4:12).
There is no way to The Father except through His Son, Jesus (John 14:16).
We believe in the gifts of the spirit(I Cor. 12:8-10), the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and the designation of the five-fold ministry gifts as outlined in Ephesians 4:11-13.
We do believe in being filled with the spirit evidenced by speaking in tongues (Acts 2:4).
Vision: To create a strong collective of apostolic, prophetic, regional intercessors who effectively stand in the gap and make up the hedge and release supernatural revival fire into the earth resulting in miracles, wonders, and signs. Mission: To equip, educate, and activate intercessors on a global level through classroom instruction, practical application, and creation of community. RTA will accomplish this through the utilizing of spiritual development tools such as study/meditation of the word of God, worship, and discipleship.
