Study Theology a Fun, Mystical Atmosphere From Home!

Cana is where the water of the word is transformed into the wine of contemplative experience. Students, pastors and lay leaders who want a grace immersion are invited to join us for one or two years of theological training in an atmosphere of joy unspeakable. You can now study at your own pace with our online classroom.

John Crowder hosts this unique seminary for wild-eyed wonder junkies to be deeply established in the revelation of the Gospel of Grace. Cana offers a unique marriage of life-transforming, happy theology woven seamlessly with the intoxicating practice of the presence of God. A place where you will find doctorate level theologians and mystical ecstatics sharing the same platform. Cana is a drunken seminary. A one or two-year theological circus of fun geared to saturate students with the Living Word - the wine of the New Covenant.

Cana's course of study is accessible enough for folks with no theological background, yet deep enough to challenge and train existing pastors and ministers. Whether you want continuing education or a focused supplement to your current college or ministry school, Cana promises to deliver groundbreaking revelation for people of all walks of life. 

Cana is not just for those merely seeking a preaching career. Cana is for those who authentically desire to plunge into the Message itself – who want a deep, life-changing paradigm shift of the finished work of Christ in an atmosphere of mystical Christianity. Whether you are you called to missions, ministry or simply to life ... Cana is not just a ministry school. It is a Message School.
