Global Celebration School of Supernatural Ministry.
Learn how to do the works of Jesus.
GCSSM is a ministry training school personally led by Global Celebration's founders, Georgian and Winnie Banov. Our students learn to embrace their glorious new identity in Christ, how to carry revival in a culture of Honor, and how to extend the borders of the Kingdom through a supernatural Heaven-on-Earth lifestyle.
As we meet two nights every week for interactive training, you will gain confidence developing your ministry gifts within the safety of the classroom. You will be encouraged to participate in Global Celebration-style outreaches filled with love and joy where you will see Heaven touch Earth with your own hands.
Based on the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry curriculum as well as the distinct world-changing DNA of Global Celebration, adult students of all ages will passionately pursue God in a community based on love, faith and honor, and learn to build revival culture with solid Biblical understanding.

Starting in September 2018, we are offering a special "Missions Track" for those who have a heart for the nations
For decades, Georgian and Winnie Banov and their Global Celebration team have been famous for bringing people with them on short-term, joy-filled missionary trips all around the globe.
We believe that God is raising up a new generation of happy missionaries who know their true identity, value, and purpose. If your heart is burning with a call to carry Christ to the nations, we invite you to sign up for our optional GCSSM missions track (available only at the Harrisburg, PA campus).
Do the nations tug at your heart?
GCSSM is the school for you!
Lovingly referred to as the “Joy Apostles”, Georgian and Winnie Banov are a radical team with a powerful message.Known as the “Joy Apostles,” the Banovs travel extensively each year, focusing primarily on the poorest of the poor throughout third world nations. Charged with a heart of compassion, they host lavish Jesus Celebrations and Love Feasts, providing hot meals for the local people and spreading a powerful message based on fresh revelations from the Scriptures. Boldly declaring the finished work of the Cross, their presentation of the Gospel is with rare clarity and depth causing changed lives, freedom, joy, supernatural healing and wholeness.
Born in communist Bulgaria, Georgian Banov became a Christian after escaping through the Iron Curtain and moving to Southern California in 1974. Well-known for his extensive involvement in the Christian music scene, Georgian was the leader of a contemporary Christian band called Silverwind in the 80s. He also co-wrote and co-produced several famous children’s classics, including Music Machine and Bullfrogs and Butterflies which sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide and earned a Dove Award and Grammy nomination.
Georgian and Winnie Banov will personally lead 50% of your evening classroom sessions.
In addition to our GCSSM pastoral team, we periodically bring in live guest speakers who are nationally and internationally known and respected. Whether in the classroom or in a conference setting, you will receive deep revelation from a variety of ministry streams.
Some of our previous guest instructors include Eric Johnson, Todd White, Kris Vallotton, Danny Silk, Dr. Randy Clark, Dr. Brian Simmons, Seth Dahl, Patricia King, Chris Gore, Leif Hetland, Dr. Lance Wallnau, Bob Hartley, Stacey Campbell, Steve & Wendy Backlund, and David Wagner.
You will also receive a short list of required reading and study materials during orientation and throughout the school year.
If you would like to get a head start for the school year, we recommend that you read Bill Johnson’s book, When Heaven Invades Earth, as well as Romans 6, 7, and 8 in several translations. This will be your first reading assignment.

Our mission is to equip and deploy revivalists who passionately pursue transformation in their God-given spheres of influence. Every student will be exhorted and trained to walk in a culture of honor as they carry Heaven's atmosphere back to their home, church, community and beyond.
The vision of GCSSM is to bring transformation and wholeness to the Northeast and then ultimately to the nations by sharing the extravagant love of Jesus, by declaring the “out-of-all-proportion solution” of the Cross, and to see believers walk in “bliss”– a state of profound spiritual satisfaction and ecstasy of salvation.
People don’t want “religion” but they do want Heaven! While the world around us seems like it is spinning out of control, the children of God have been beckoned to grab hold of Heaven and bring it to Earth. A tsunami wave of God's presence is coming and the notoriously cold Northeast is going to be one of the hottest places to be.
