Ignite your purpose. Lead with passion. Perform with excellence.
As followers of Christ, we are called to make disciples. But what exactly does that mean? ROGO School is a leadership development program that’s designed to answer this question and inspire others to become disciple-makers. Over the course of six months, students will learn how to disciple through a combination of teaching, mentorship, and real-world application, for a fully immersive experience.
Once a month, students will come together at one of our campuses to learn and fellowship with each other. We’ll begin our time together with live teaching from the pastoral staff at Sandals Church. Topics include leadership, spiritual formation, theology, evangelism, and more. Afterwards, students will have the opportunity to discuss what they learned with their fellow students, as well as participate in a Q&A session.
A mentor will come alongside you in the process of being uniquely formed in the image of Christ. During your time together, your mentor will be available to pray, encourage, and challenge you to grow deeper in your faith.
In order to pour out, you must also be poured into. One of the best ways to quench this thirst is through developing the habit of spiritual disciplines. Whether it’s daily prayer, spending time in the Word, journaling, or fasting, we encourage our students to practice one or more of these daily.
Live it Out Exercises
One of the best ways to learn is by doing. Each month, we are going to challenge our students to live out what they’ve learned through application in a real-world setting. Some examples include talking to someone you’ve never met, sharing the Gospel with a nonbeliever, and inviting someone into discipleship.
Join us for an in-person weekend experience where you will get to explore your life story and how you can use it to reach others. Led by the Pastor of Spiritual Formation, this is an opportunity for you to dive deeper in the practices of study, reflection, and retreat.
At the conclusion of the program, we’ll host a celebration for everyone who finished strongly.
“Through the ROGO School program, I became more confident in the person that God created me to be. In all areas, my giftings, my personality, my emotions; they were all intentionally created by God to reflect his personality to the world. Once I was able to recognize and work in these areas, it was so freeing and empowering.”

“ROGO school has changed my life in many ways! I’ve learned such valuable wisdom from my church’s leaders and my mentor. I’ve made awesome friends through ROGO school and seen them shine in the different ways they love and serve the church. Everything I’ve learned has helped, and continues to help me to be a better employee, leader, christian, person. I love it!”

“I can honestly say that enrolling in ROGO School and being accepted last year was an experience I will never forget. The teaching was by far some of the best teachings I have ever been a part of, along with building up the relationships with everyone associated with ROGO School as well as the other students and most importantly with God.”
