“This program has been a rewarding experience for me and my ministry. I have gained a lot through the program, and there are three key lessons I have learned in the program that will bring life-long benefits:
  • Perception vs. Practice – A right perception of God leads to a right practice of ministry. I have reflected a lot on the perception of God as well as the practice of ministry throughout the program. This continuous review and reflection will sharpen and purify my practice of ministry.
  • Information vs. Inspiration – The professors are very good at turning information into inspiration! Their balanced view of the two has demonstrated a discipline in academics as well as the Spirit. As a leader and trainer in church, it is not right to just focus on getting and transferring the information, rather, we should transform the information into inspiration that can encourage, equip, and empower the congregation to serve.
  • Professionalism & Partnership – Church pastors not only need to be professional, they also need to have partners in ministries. The professors are always well-prepared, and they know their materials well. The seminars have also provided chances for classmates to share and become sojourners. This is particularly precious for pastors who would frequently encounter the sense of lost and loneliness in ministries.
My life has never been the same after this program. These valuable lessons are bringing great blessings to my life as well as the people I serve.  To God be the glory!”
