Setting the Captives Free: Spiritual Warfare in the Classroom

with David Schmus of CEAI

Does the unseen world impact our classrooms? Absolutely. Scripture tells us that our enemy is not flesh and blood, but rather spiritual forces who seek to interrupt God’s plan for our lives and teaching. Learn how these unseen forces operate in our lives and how to get greater freedom and victory for ourselves and our students.

    Thank you David. I think the Holy Spirit drew my interest to this session right away. The session exposed an area of ignorance in my life that has come to my awareness a few times before… but is something I need to do something about. Particularly with Christian friends or acquaintances who have nightmares, or kids who practice self-harm, etc. It’s always been a question in my mind — is this demonic? What can I do about this? This should not be in the life of a child of God.
