The People Behind 'The Nest'


Grant & Samantha Mahoney

Grant & Samantha Mahoney [ Nest Leaders ]

Grant Mahoney

The Nest has been birthed out of the desire of Grant's heart, to be an avenue where sons can be trained and tutored in the business of the Kingdom of God.  

This is so that they can come into full maturity, have an understanding of who they are in Christ and also have the full knowledge of what the Father has called them to do.

Samantha Mahoney

Samantha has a heart to see the sons of God come into their full inheritance.  She is an excellent teacher who has a sound knowledge of the Word and an ability to help others apply Kingdom reality in their daily lives.  

Sam is passionate about equipping people with keys and strategies so they can apply them in their own lives to take back their territory and bear much fruit.

Ian Clayton

Ian Clayton [ Nest Leader ]

Ian Clayton

Ian's heart is to put strategies and keys into believers' hands to enable them to actively participate in the realms of God's Kingdom and to experience the empowerment of life as the spirit beings they were created to be. 

Ian's desire is to train and equip believers to give their lives in the passionate pursuit of the person of God.  In this pursuit, they will discover that their lives are about the preparation for oneness and unity with God and that they are mandated and authorized ambassadors of His Kingdom.

His passion is to reveal the purpose of the power and authority of God within them, which will remove the sense of powerlessness and hopelessness that is often attached to many in the body of Christ when they are confronted with the reality of the spirit world that surrounds them.

Stephen Mckie

Stephen Mckie [ Principal ]

Stephen Mckie 

Stephen Mckie lives in Ayrshire Scotland and is a man who was, and still is, greatly impacted by the legacy of the Welsh revival through the Welsh apostolic church. He remains impacted by the tangible reality of the awesome presence of God he felt growing up in those gatherings and the power of the prophetic Spoken Words that he heard.

Stephen is joining The Nest as a Principal of our new year 1 students.  Stephen says: "Before I was asked to come on board full time with the Nest, the Lord clearly spoke to me through a dream, that my friend had, confirming that I was to be part of this great Nest adventure! When I was then asked a few days after this dream to consider coming on board full time, I really had no decision to make. I was simply saying yes to my scroll!

It is therefore such an incredible privilege to be part of the Nest with Ian, Grant & Samantha and to be part of the Lord's unfolding plan to raise up mature sons on the earth.  Let the new season begin!"



Marios Ellinas

Marios Ellinas [ Principal ]

Marios Ellinas

Marios is passionate about Kingdom governance and finance, and especially  the character development processes through which Sons are empowered to excel in these areas. Marios has participated in The Nest as guest lecturer from the school’s inception.

“It’s an outstanding organization,” Marios says. “Beyond The Nest’s exceptional training and equipping regimen, it also facilitates an ever-growing international community of mature Sons.

It always means so much to me when students come up to us during conferences and say, ‘We’re Nesters’.”

This is a summary of some of the teachings you can look forward to in Year 2

Trimester 1: Over the first 12 week period, we will concentrate on: Understanding and Cleansing the Gateways of the 3 fold nature of man; we will look at the mind of man and thoughts and patterns that hold us captive and we will receive keys to cleanse the imagination and renew the mind; we will pull out the memories and records from our autosomes as we repent through the above; we will go back to look at the mysteries contained in the Blood and the Cross and how our scrolls tie in with that. We will finish this trimester looking at a few of the baptisms and covenants of God.


Trimester 2: During the next 12 week period, we will concentrate on: the Order of Melchizedek and how we function in that Order; we will learn about the protocols of accessing the Courts of Heaven and how to work with the Angelic, Cloud of Witnesses, how to engage the books of heaven etc; We will do a number of practical exercises as an Ecclesia in the Courts so that we become familiar with answering accusations and getting ourselves judged in order to get verdicts rendered in our favour.


Trimester 3: In the final 12 weeks, we will tie up loose ends as well as concentrate on Quantumly entangling with the Government of God. 

We have learned much theory in Years 1 and 2 which we will put into practice in Year 3.  We will spend a large amount of time forming pathways; meeting as an Ecclesia in heaven to legislate into things happening in the earth.  You will enjoy sound and revelatory teachings from our amazing speakers and receive invaluable keys and strategies in dealing with your own circumstances as well as for things affecting the earth.
