Theology of worship

2024-04-06

The course is Empowering and transformational. It has changed my perspective about worship and church service (gathering ), we no longer go to a service but gathering. I’m am definately attending the gatherings with an attitude of serving.

I it has strengthen my understanding of worship, as a life style not just singing. Acts of service that glorifies God and touches man.

Missionary Calling

2024-04-04

I found this course to be very enlightening because although I had been called for missionary work before, I never fully grasped all the implications. Thank you for the detail and work that was put into this course. Now I have a better understanding of the work and will need to pray about is this truly what God called me to do? and where He would want to use me.

Crossing Cultures

2024-04-02

The teachings and practical insights shared in Crossing Cultures have equipped me with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate cross-cultural encounters with sensitivity, empathy, and respect. This program has not only expanded my theological horizons but has also challenged me to examine my own biases and assumptions, ultimately fostering greater unity and collaboration within the body of Christ.

Furthermore, the community aspect of Axx has been a source of encouragement and support as I continue to learn and grow in my faith journey. Connecting with fellow believers who share a passion for cross-cultural ministry has been both inspiring and uplifting.

Overall, I am immensely grateful for the impact that Crossing Cultures and Axx have had on my life. I truly believe that this program is playing a significant role in advancing the kingdom of God by empowering believers to bridge cultural divides and proclaim the love of Christ to all nations.
