About HS31

Our Vision

Iris Harvest School is a Spirit-filled and Spirit-led, hands-on, in the dirt, evangelistic missions training school. Our vision is for a school:

  • of radical and called out ones who have a clear call to missions, starting the adventure of their lives with other like-minded and like-hearted students.
  • that trains up, equips and sends out radical laid down lovers of Jesus who carry the Kingdom of God to the ends of the earth.
  • of students who carry the DNA of Iris Global and can articulate and live these core values out in any situation they face.
  • of students who daily experience the transforming love and power of God.
  • where the power of the Holy Spirit and resources of God’s Kingdom are released to reach every need both spiritual and physical.
  • of students who have learnt how to release God’s love in practical ways infused with His power.
  • of students who are learning how to bring the good news to the poor, look after the widows, heal the sick, bring freedom to the captives, who stop for the one and believe for the multitudes.

Our vision can be summed up in a few words: CALLED TO LOVE. It costs everything. It’s passion and compassion. Extravagant love that gives without expecting back. A laid down life. A love that looks like something practically. It’s a huge vision that is changing the world person by person and nation by nation.

Matthew 9:36-38: “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Further Opportunities To Love

Following the school there are many opportunities to go on “extended outreaches” internationally. Be sure to check what outreaches are available during the term you intend to apply to.

While you are in the Harvest School, you will have the opportunity to find out about long-term missions with Iris and meet leaders from the various Iris bases. You will also become familiar with the current open positions for long-term service. This is a good time to be intentional and sit down with Iris missionaries and staff to ask questions, get to know them, allow them to know you and to prayerfully consider long-term service with Iris.

Iris Leadership is happy to meet with graduating students to discuss the options for long-term positions with Iris.
