“For these last few years, (yes it took me a little longer to get through it,) I have been blessed with amazing teaching from very competent and engaging lecturers that brought the truth of what it means to be a minister of the gospel and unpacking of what that gospel is. Through the years I have studied at different colleges and always found it heavy going, but this has been an utter delight. I also have a passion to continue to study and Axx has given me the quality yet affordability to get further qualifications in my lifes work to be a blessing to others. So blessed and appreciative of all that I have had the privilege to learn from. I thoroughly recommend this course to those wishing to know our incredible God more and how to express that knowledge to others in clear and understandable terms..”

Review for "God's call your response"

Rated 5 out of 5
14 June 2022

It is a pleasure to write a review about the lessons that I have learned through precious men of God. In this module “God’s call your response” I have got a lot more clarity about God’s call, and how people respond to the call. In particular, I learned that WE HAVE BEEN CALLED IN VARIOUS WAYS IN VARIOUS TIMES. AND WE WERE RESPONDED BOTH IN ACTION AND IN CONVICTION. While Dr. Brendan Roach teaches about the ministry zone, he extracts the principle from the parable, making it so simple and practical that it gives us a new understanding. though I know a few things about hearing the voice of God, Kay Dohle explains it in an exceptional way and made me listen to lessons interestingly. Overall I enjoyed every lesson, and I am very much blessed. Thank you so much.

From Leadership comes direction

Rated 5 out of 5
6 June 2022

One can be a pastor or an elder but he might not be a leader.
A leader brings direction and they are strong in their leadership. If you have to be a leader, you have to learn. Leadership has principles. And if its principle is violated or abused, problem will arise in the Church. When we talk about leadership, there are three essential leadership qualities we all must have.
A leader must carry:
-Responsibility
-Authority
-Accountability.
If you live out these qualities, it is going to create a weakness in your leadership or weakness in the Church.
The leader is responsible for whatever happens in the Church.
-Many Churches never grow simply because the leader does not have authority to actually lead the church forward. So we need to have authority to make decisions, choices to move the Church forward. We should not delegate that to someone else, it shoild be the leader that should have that authority.
-As a leader, you are accountable for everything. Accountable when things go right and wrong. You are accountable when it is time to celebrate because God has done some good things but if things are not going so well you are accountable, we have to look at where are we going next?
-As a leader, what are you going to be doing?
-What changes needed to be made for the Church to progress forward?
*How do you govern your Church?
-Is it Autocracy,or Beaucracy or Democracy or Theocracy?
We must know that God is in Charge and he is the Leader of our Churches. Let’s allow the Leasder to lead us (That is Theocracy).
-“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice..” (Proverbs 29:2).

Sometimes things we look at them lightly yet they have a great analysis. I have learnt a lot on these topics. I liked the comparism of trinity in Old Testament and New Testament. interesting topic when getting into details on the trinity of God and how three works together. This show how God is a God of order so as the church should be. the works of Christ and the Holy Spirit, that was really an eye-opening topic for me, because sometime we read the scripture and want to interpret it on our own forgetting the author and helper in order to interpret it according to the need of the church while still in the rightful assignment of God.
Thank you so much Ministry Axx Global.

Sermon Design and Delivery

Rated 5 out of 5
14 June 2022

The unit has taught me that designing and delivering a sermon properly are essential for successful preaching. In designing, we need to consider the exegesis (understanding the text) and hermeneutics (understanding the world). Exegesis helps with avoiding selecting one verse and preaching it of context as it understands the meaning, form, culture and why the author referred to some examples as fitting the Biblical meta-narrative story. Preparation of a sermon is so important since it leads to better content and eliminating anxiety when presenting it. It is also important to handle difficult topics through humor and giving positive examples among others. In preaching it is important to do evaluation by allowing specific people to critique and also listening to self through watching your personal sermon. We should avoid post-delivery syndrome that tends to make us be negative like we did not deliver the message well. Instead we should understand that God has the responsibility of changing people and transforming them.

14 June 2022

This is a rich course that touches on areas of importance to pastors and church leaders. Coming from a developing country, Kenya where accessing such trainings requires high school fees in the colleges and universities that many cannot afford this a great opportunity to equip church leaders for ministry. All the units learnt are special in giving deep insights in fulfilling my call in ministry. The first unit by Matt about understanding the story of the Bible and how various puzzles fit together in overall understanding of the Bible from the Creation era to End time Era in revelation was so enriching and deepened my understanding. It taught me to learn how God orchestrates things in the background like the exiled Israelites helped to extend the evangelism agenda of God. Cultural missions helped in applying principles of reaching out to the unreached such as in Middle East among others such as proper planning, learning language and understanding cultures with a view of the Gospel being preached. The unit on church growth also helped me understand principles such as equipping leaders, expanding physical structures and building kingdom-centered churches among others. In ministering, it is also important to check on personal health and wholeness for effective ministry.
