Past Learners Said…
“I learned from the other class members how they perceived their own call from God. It was helpful for me to hear the various ways the Lord can work. But as much as anything, I simply enjoyed the fellowship of the daily discussions on the online board.”
“The online discussions were the best part for me. Each day we would receive a topic to write about, then each one would write a brief essay. We would read each other’s essays and comment on them, making it an interactive experience.”
“The online discussions were my favorite part of the course. Learning from each other was a great experience.”
“I would recommend this course to anyone who is a youth leader in the church.”
