The academic facet of G42 is as diverse as it is interactive. G42 believes that while information can prove helpful, it is impartation that gives way to breakthrough and growth. Each week of the semester contains its own separate subject. Topics vary between practical applications and spiritual teaching. The teacher’s goal for the week is to impart some aspect of his or her wisdom and character to the interns of G42. The Leadership Academy is not a Bible school, but rather a discipleship school whose teachings are inspired by the Word of God. Students will be expected to speak up and step out of their comfort zone during class while learning about and experiencing the active Spirit of God. Our goal is not to further the ever increasing divide between spiritual and secular living, but instead to reconcile the two to live spiritually natural and naturally spiritual.

The G42 classes are held in El Epicentro, G42’s community center located in the heart of Mijas and just down the road from intern housing. The Epi also serves as space for staff offices, English classes, tapas nights and worship.

Chosen for their relational nature and high level of training and experience in their respective field – either in church, business or the arts – the teachers of G42 are flown in from all over the world. Along with classes both in the morning and afternoon, teachers make themselves available outside of class for one on one meetings with interns to discuss everything from personal life to future plans or more insight on the day’s teaching. Teachers also make themselves available as a resource before and after their teaching week to continue assisting with the visions and goals of interns.
