Doug & His Dog Bluey



Doug and his Australian Blue Healer cattle dog 'Bluey' on stage at the DSMI Ranch Ministry Chapel. Doug's many years of ministry around the world allow him to impart the many secrets of the Kingdom of God to his students.
Doug has experienced not only the miraculous signs, wonders to impart from, but also a veterans experience of building a minister of Christ in lives and establishing ministries that survive in this very troubled world.

"It is my desire to help committed

students to become confident and

adequate ministers of Christ, which is the call upon every believer’s life."

Doug Stanton 

A Note from Doug Stanton

The Harvest is Plentiful, The Laborers are Few!
John Wesley said, “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen; such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth. God does nothing but in answer to prayer.”

The longer I serve in ministry, the more the above quote by John Wesley makes heart sense to me. God is calling all who will go… It is my sincere opinion that many are called to minister like Christ, but few prove to be chosen by God, because they have disqualified themselves as a result of the training system of the world.
Many people assume they are not called because they did not go to seminary school and act accordingly.
It is my experience that your calling and election do not become clear until you step out and obey the Great Commission and the Teachings of Christ. Direction and knowing come while you are moving. It is easier to redirect something that is moving.
What would you do if the harvest was ripe and about to be lost and you found a harvester sitting in the field that was not in good working condition? With a little work, that harvester could be made fit enough to take in some of the harvest so it would not be lost and wasted. Would a good farmer leave it or fix it? Well this farmer and his school are here to find the harvesters in the field and fix them up ready for the masters use to take in their share of the harvest. Then the harvester finds its honored place in the Farmers barn.

Doug's Parable of the Brocken Harvester Below...!

The Bible says the Harvest is white for Harvest but the labourers to take in the Ripe harvest are too few. Pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send forth laborers into the field. Do you desire to minister and win people to God that would otherwise be lost? If yes then we are calling you forth to be equipped and made ready for the masters use.

The Harvester is Broken and Not Working


YES WE CAN .....

....... with a touch from the master mechanic ( the Lord of the Harvest ), we can get this harvester back into the field fully equipped to take in it's share of the harvest so it will not be lost. Powerhouse School of Ministry is that Mechanic Shop of the Lord Of The Harvest.

Send Forth Laborers into the Field
As the Lord touches your hearts desire to be one of his laborers, come join us here at Powerhouse School of Ministry and let us help get you ready to take in your share of the great end time harvest. When a team of us work in harmony with the Spirit of the Lord we will not only get more people into the kingdom for God, but we will set ourself and each other up to hear those words from the Lord of the Harvest, " well done my good and faithful servant, NOW ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR MASTER."
Jesus scorned the shame of the cross because of the JOY that was set before him...The possible harvest of souls that His sacrifice on the cross made possible.

Let Me Equip You for Your God Given Destiny and Purpose

Every person has a secret desire to do more for God, but most do not know how to get from where they are to where God wants them to be. Doug has helped thousands of people like you find another level of fulfillment in Christian service and ministry. For some, this is being more effective in family and church. For a smaller group, it is a deep desire to find their ministry call and purpose to touch the lives of others in a desire to please God. This school will help both groups and you may be surprised by what God has in store for you beyond your expectations. I know he has for me and many others just like you. God does have a greater plan for all our lives, yet few step out onto that narrow road to pursue it. Let us help make this possible.
