I don’t really know how words can explain but here goes. This class time has really challenged what I grew up with. I learned how to effectively embrace the life Christ has for me. To learn, to establish relationships and impact the world around me in a way that glorifies God and advances His Kingdom.
It helped me to be more confident as a leader and helped me to think outside my box for sure.
The classes offered many different topics and as a newer Christian many of these topics that I have never heard before helped to give me new understanding and revelation of how to use them in daily life.
My whole Christian life I felt as an outsider looking in. I grew up in a church that did not seem to grow leaders because it was built around the pastor and administration. This school has taught me that we are called to minister the word according to my gifts and that we all have gifts. I will grow as a leader and grow future leaders.
I believe I have been changed and empowered from the various speakers. I am excited to see what God does next in my life and the lives of others that attended with me.
The school has helped me to realize God has gifted me to lead, minister and bring hope to a certain group of people. This is both very humbling and terrifying at the same time.
I honestly enjoyed every session and felt the Holy Spirit working in my heart each weekend. This program has been life changing and as sad as I am to graduate, I am looking forward to what God has for me next. Thank you DOVE Hopewell!
The School has impacted my life in many ways. It has stretched me and caused me to truly look at what is most important in my life. I am now looking where God wants me to move as far as ministry. I am much more open to show who God is in my life and reaching out more to friends and family.
Not only has this course prepared me for great learning. It has improved my marriage. There is a heaviness that has been lifted. Some of the things I prayed about for freedom…it was the first time that area of my life was touched.
It has given me a very good view of DOVE and Hopewell, a vibrant, living group of people doing-not just teaching-the real Kingdom life.
I came to this school feeling lonely and that my desires were misunderstood. Not only have I found community and confirmation of my desires that the Lord put there, I found a sense of identity and purpose with a greater understanding of how the Lord wired me to fulfill my destiny.
This school has given me many visions. I started a cell group and have vision for starting a House Church.
It helped me to have my own faith. Generational curses have been broken and ungodly beliefs as well. I have a huge desire to learn things.
It has given me a new view of what it is like to be an effective leader.
To me it was always encouraging to hear what God is doing around the world and gain the bigger picture.
Through the field study of developing a business plan, I am actually with a business mentor to develop it and implement it. I also made very good connections with others.
It deepened and reignited a love for the Bride of Christ and how we are to redeem and restore the world.
The school has helped me realize my specific role in the Kingdom. I have unique gifts, personality, experiences and fields of ministry. God can use me in my own way. I have the passion to see others realize this too. I have the resources and the drive to teach and train others.
I have learned so much and I have never felt closer to finding what God has called me to do with my life.
It equipped me with many practical skills and got me excited to go out and do ministry.This school has allowed me to become much more educated in the areas of Christianity and Leadership. I am going to be starting a small group in my church in a couple of weeks.Well…my life has been turned upside down since taking this school. So glad I took the school. My relationship with God, my family and my church has become deeper…and that’s God.
This school has helped me see beyond myself and that I need to listen to the Holy Spirit. I was baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit in this school. It taught me many, many new ideas and concepts. It helped me map out a game plan for where I go from here. I would recommend this school to anyone who is serious about learning and growing.
