INS Overview

The Inheriting the Nations School (INS) gained its name from the middle portion of Psalm 2, verses 7 & 8. The heart of the school is an expression of their content; personally knowing God as Father, living freely as his beloved children, seeing his fullness released into all of creation.

Whilst these three components summarise the overall focus of the Inheriting the Nations School (INS), there are many other facets that combine to create its overall richness.

During the ten weeks of the INS, there are three input sessions each morning and occasional afternoon and evening events. INS speakers are invited for their recognised capacity to preach and teach with anointing, ministering heart to heart from the life of God.

Weekends and afternoons at the INS are generally free, they’re a time to enjoy all the beauty of Great Barrier Island and to contribute to the practical needs of the community. Part of the richness of the INS is the opportunity to simultaneously receive heart-changing revelation in the classroom and within the beauty of God’s creation.

Whilst elements of the curriculum are predefined, the INS is led with an open hand, allowing the Holy Spirit to form, shape and create as the school unfolds.

“You are my Son; today I have become your Father. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.”

– Psalm 2:7-8

Impartation and Multiplication

The Inheriting the Nations School is about impartation and multiplication to the next generation. That next generation is not defined by age but by openness of heart. Fatherheart Ministries exists to continually give away all of the revelation, life and freedom that Father has generously given to us. Initially this was expressed within our 6-day Fatherheart Ministries A Schools, which in turn led to 6-day B Schools. As effective as these schools are, the INS provides a venue and context where the fullness of this revelation can be brought at a much deeper level. This could only ever be achieved in the context of community, of family, where the substance of God’s love is received, expressed and multiplied in relationship.

When the INS was pioneered in 2008, Denise Jordan, was stirred from her sleep one morning with the words of a song strongly impressed upon her heart; “Does the flame burn brighter in your hand than it burned in the hand of your Father when he said, ‘It’s your turn…’?” These words speak not only of passing the baton from one generation to the next, but of a multiplication of life and anointing with each new generation. The INS is a place for the flame to burn brighter…

Returning to our origins

The Inheriting the Nations School is about returning to our origins. The INS is hosted at the Orama Christian Community on Great Barrier Island. Orama is a thin place, a place where the presence of God touches hearts deeply and with ease. Orama is the place where the foundations of the ministry were laid. This is where spiritual fathers and mother’s sowed the seeds that would formulate the heart and revelation that we now call Fatherheart Ministries.

Jack and Dorothy Winter came from the United States to minister at one of Orama’s summer camps. During their time at Orama, Jack began to have a revelation that the Love of God is a literal substance that can be imparted heart to heart. Today this revelation is transforming and restoring Christianity the world over. Our founders, James and Denise Jordan, would later become a part of Jack and Dorothy’s Daystar Community in the United States. They aligned their hearts with all that the Lord had revealed to Jack and Dorothy, as Joshua did to Moses. Before Jack passed away in 2002, he laid hands on James to convey his mantel of ministry and anointing. James and Denise have remained faithful to that calling until today and it is the essence of Fatherheart Ministries. It all began at Orama.

We will be gathering in Orama which is located on Aotea, Great Barrier Island – 90 km from the coast of Auckland, New Zealand.  Orama is set down in its own valley on the picturesque western facing Karaka Bay. It is where James and Denise first met with Jack Winter and where all our Spiritual Fathers converged. It is a place away from the busyness of the world, where we can connect with Father and with one another in the beauty of His creation.
