Supernatural Living

Supported and Hosted by The Living Room Church, Torquay

About Awaken Academy

Jesus Christ has chosen you to be like Him!

Jesus didn’t choose you because of your worthiness or skill. You’ve been chosen simply because He loves you and has a great purpose for your life. He has prepared you for this moment in history so that you can make a difference with Him. You have important things to do!


The Bible says you’re a child of God. You have an amazing calling and He has strategically positioned you to demonstrate the Kingdom of Heaven through your life. This is your destiny.


Awaken Academy is for those who are wholeheartedly devoted to Jesus and want to go deeper in their commitment to become like Him. It is not about getting more head knowledge about God, but purely about cultivating a deeply personal and powerful relational connection with God and being transformed into the likeness of Jesus.​

Formerly CityWest College, which was in operation for four and a half years in Melton, we are excited to re-launch a dedicated supernatural academy in the Geelong and Surf Coast regions of Victoria, Australia.

Hosted and led by The Living Room Church (Torquay), this exciting series of subjects are aimed at equipping you to live the supernatural life, naturally! You will find practical teaching that will equip you to live up to your potential and take the reality of God's presence and power into every sphere of life.​

Subjects Offered at Awaken Academy


Churches around the world are awakening to the urgent need of the followers of Jesus looking and sounding like Him. To reflect Jesus to the world around us must be an intentional and empowered choice. That's why Awaken Academy equip the people of God to represent Jesus to a world that needs a genuine encounter with His love, presence and power. Truth is...we owe the world an encounter with Jesus!

Our subjects have been selected to provide you with a solid foundation on which you will continue to build your expression of being Christlike. They are grounded in the belief that the normal Christian life is naturally supernatural, just like Jesus.


One of Jesus’ primary revelations was of God, a Father. God has been reconciled to all humanity. When we accept His reconciliation, our identity, spiritual inheritance and friendship with God change dramatically ...’old things pass away and all things become new’. He is intentionally devoted to releasing in us a confidence that He is extravagant in His ongoing pursuit of our freedom in Him. Come and discover the joy of deep friendship with God.
