Frequently Asked Questions

What are the dates?

GSM follows UF and Santa Fe’s Fall/Spring academic calendar. We start 8/19/19 and end 4/30/20. Students will also have vacation for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring break.

What is the weekly schedule like?

Each week students will participate in 22 hours of instruction and hands on training Monday-Thursday. Each day starts at 7:00am and ends at 12:30pm.

Do you offer childcare?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not. However, the start time each day can be flexible for parents that have to drop their kids off in the morning.

Do I have to work a part-time job outside of GSM?

No, you do not have to find a job but it is highly recommended. Outside of the income benefit, the workplace creates great opportunities to connect with people and practice the discipleship skills you are learning.

What if my work schedule conflicts with the GSM schedule?

We can work with that on rare occasions but in general your work schedule cannot conflict with the GSM schedule.

Do I have to pay tuition all up front or can I pay in installments?

If you pay everything up front you are eligible for a 5% discount but you are welcome to pay in installments. When you are accepted we will fill you in on all of those details.

Do you offer scholarships?

We would love to, but unfortunately at this time we do not. If finances are a challenge we’d love to talk with you about it to see if there are other ways we can help.

Will I be accepted if I apply?

We prayerfully evaluate each applicant as we try to discern whether or not they would be a good fit for the program. Because space is limited we will give preference to church members that have been actively involved in serving and leadership roles in their church.

Do I have to be a member of Greenhouse Church before participating? Do I have to live in the U.S.?

No,  however while you are in the program it is necessary to be a full active member of the church. We have had many people participate in our training programs from outside of our church and from outside of the U.S.

Do you have any options available for people that have to work full-time jobs?

We are developing an online school that we hope to launch in Fall 2020. If you would like to stay in the loop about that, click here to leave us a comment and we will add you to the list.
