Taking the Gospel from Harvest to the world
What did you study at Harvest Bible College?
Studying at Harvest was challenging yet empowering. A Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Ministry (Cross Cultural Evangelism, Leadership Development and Church Planting) was ideal preparation for answering the call God had placed on my life. The flexible study options of attending classes on campus and online enabled me to complete the course and graduate in 2012.
Where have your studies at Harvest taken you?
Since graduation, I have been in full-time ministry conducting practical infield seminars training and empowering indigenous leaders, preaching in churches, teaching in Bible colleges and creating Kingdom of God resources in heart languages throughout the world.
By His Spirit, in His name, to the glory of the Father – the broken receive healing, captives are set free, oppressed empowered, the lost found, and the acceptable year of the Lord is proclaimed.
How was Harvest part of the journey?
Studying at Harvest continues to have an enormous influence on what God has done, is doing and going to do, in and through my life. The majority of the preparation for my call was not just in the course itself, nor the reading materials, nor the sending out (which was a night full of God’s presence, Spiritual gifts and empowerment) but in the relationships. The affirmation, encouragement and great learning imparted by the lecturers is invaluable.
Recently a seminar delegate in India asked, ‘Where did you learn about the importance of culture and participatory learning techniques?’ I replied, ‘Harvest Bible College… Very good lecturers.’
My time at Harvest opened my eyes and by His Spirit, I now see through Jesus’ eyes. I also learnt the importance of children in God’s plan and that leaders need to empower others to empower others. As a result, my passion is, by His Spirit, to empower adults and children to grow in a greater knowledge of the glory of the LORD. ‘For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.’ Habakkuk 2:14
I thank God for my time studying at Harvest Bible College and all the lecturers and staff who, together, continue to follow the call on their lives, by effectively training others to do likewise.
