The campus of His Church - School of Ministry is a bit secluded from what most may consider "civilization". The closest town with more than 2,500 people is about 45 minutes away. That being said, residents in Wilsey often choose to make themselves as self-sufficient as possible; which includes growing their own food.
In addition to the trade classes offered at His Church - School of Ministry, students also have the opportunity to learn Aquaponic Farming. Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants naturally filter the water for the fish. Students are encouraged to participate in learning how to build and maintain an Aquaponics system. Not only do we eat the food we grow, but we also donate a portion to a local food distribution ministry.
We have separate men's and women's housing available. Housing costs are covered by your tuition.
As eluded to above, Wilsey is kind of in the middle of nowhere. That being said, cell phone service is almost nonexistent. Only two phone carriers get service here: Verizon and Smart Talk (Walmart). No other cell providers get service.
Students are given the freedom to cook just about anything they want in our full commercial kitchen. A weekly food budget will be assigned to each cohort depending on the number of students. We try to grow as much of our own vegetables and some fruits as we can.
