Seventy people have already enrolled in the six-month course on how to perform miracles and run by the Westlife Church in outer Brisbane, The Queensland Times reports.
The course is based on the teachings of the US-based Bethel evangelical church and its controversial leader Bill Johnson who speaks to students through a series of DVDs.
Westlife Church manager Yvonne Baker told The Queensland Times that several "miracles" had already been performed at the church and there were high hopes the teachings of the School of Supernatural Evangelism would contribute more.
"This is an environment where people can take risks in learning to operate in the supernatural without fear of rejection or failure."
The site makes no mention of the cost of the course and no further comment was immediately available.
The church is based near Ipswich, hit hard by the devastating Queensland floods earlier this year. It describes Hillsong as its "mother church" in the church newsletter.
