Recently, I found a very strange Protestant/Charismatic organization in Hong Kong, e.g. Hong Kong School of Supernatural Ministry. This School highlight the following things:

Quote
Highlights
 ■
Develop a culture of revival and a lifestyle of the supernatural through teaching on identity in Christ, how to walk in Signs and Wonders and God’s Word.
 

Strong emphasis on developing a prophetic culture, demonstrating the gospel with power, and healing.

Learn how to cast out demons, heal the sick, prophesy, practice God’s presence and much more.
 

The school provides a vibrant and safe environment for students of all ages to learn and practice; everyone is expected to take risks in learning to operate in the supernatural without fear of rejection or failure.

The School's  Mission is:
Quote
Hong Kong School of Supernatural Ministry (HKSSM) is committed to the truth that God loves people, gave Himself for them and has given His Church supernatural power to bring individuals and nations into wholeness. God is in a good mood! The school emphasizes that believers need to return to the ministry of Signs and Wonders – to minister in love, truth and the power of God. The mission of Hong Kong School of Supernatural Ministry is to equip and deploy followers of Jesus Christ who passionately pursue transformation in their God-given spheres of influence. Every student is called to continue in the ministry style of Jesus: to enjoy the presence of God, say what He is saying, and do what He is doing.

Well, based on the main church's statement of beliefs, they just seem to be Pentecostals. Explains that school's focus on learning to do all of that.

Do Orthodox Christian think that we can practice and learn how to perform the miracles of God?

Orthodox believe that miracles can happen, and that God does them through human beings. However, you don't go to a school to "learn" how to do it, nor do you focus on "Signs and Wonders."  Rather, you work on your salvation with fear and trembling in cooperation with God, and if God so chooses to use you to perform a miracle, then that's what happens.

Not to sound mean, but miracles arent like knitting :)

Yes, God's miracles cannot 'learn' and 'practice'. The founder of this school is stupid.

This school should teach the Christians how to love God and love people and pursue a holiness life, but not how to perform the miracle of God.

Walter, since you have so many interesting questions, maybe this site can help you answering some of them. They have a section dedicated to explain Orthodoxy to protestants with a lot of quotes from the Holy Fathers  :)
