I have really enjoyed my Theological Reflections for Ministry course at Axx college. What a life changing course. I found myself totally immersed in this course. Becoming a part of Axx has changed my life each time I study, the presence of the Holy Spirit is right there and is so strong. It grows more intense at times. I am amazed at His presence, wisdom, and what He reveals while studying. Each course has its own aspect of communing with God.

I have enjoyed the teaching / learning methods, getting to work with and know the various instructors and most of all, I’ve really, really loved the impact this education has had on my walk with Christ.

Axx is a true college, put together by God and ordained by HIM.

Depression is real… i have seen it in the ministry and in ministers. Numbers do not lie.

Depression is real But subtle in church environment. Hope Pastors come out and call it out amongst themselves and congregations at large.

ADAPTABILITY

2024-03-29

I have learned another important lesson as Leader that being adaptable is the skill in reducing stress and is also key in responding effectively in a time of rapid discontinuous change.

Adaptability is very helpful, because it is all about being comfortable with change and ambiguity and being able to respond well.
