Stay true to myself.

April 5, 2022

I am at a crossroads in my life. I’m a widow , both of my children have now left home and I honestly don’t know who I am. I like to keep myself very busy so I don’t have to face truths, and unpick things that I know need addressing with God. These sessions have really challenged me about what core values I hold dear. It also identified that I needed to have purpose and validation from other people. I also have expectations and standards that I expect from others, such as family and church family that are not often met , and leaves me feeling disappointed. This has all stemmed from rejection and loss in my life ,which greatly impacts on my reaction to circumstances. As I progressed through each lesson and meditated on what it meant for me, just giving myself this time to do this course ,I felt like I was a dirty window that was just having its first clean in a long while.

Knowing and Growing

March 28, 2022

Being a student in “Axx Academy 2022” is a blessing. Learning the lessons through innovative methods and having intensive classes are extremely good. My first module was on ‘formation of self’. I learned it through recorded videos, individual and group sessions. I have learned many new things through these sessions. I would be reflecting on few topics which captured my attention and thoughts more. This first module helped me to understand what is spiritual discipline. I have learned that spiritual disciplines are those personal and corporate disciplines that promote spiritual growth. And the next fascinating topic was ‘my identity’. I understood that I have to ‘know myself’, ‘be true to myself’ as our values cannot be determined by our circumstances and our identity is in Christ. After learning about identity, I moved on to the next topic of ‘values’ which is another crucial element in our day to day lives. I have learned about Christian values and personal values. Last Saturday(12.03.2022), we had an opportunity to attend the intensive classes and it helped me to narrow down my values and focus on the lacking areas.

Mission statement, was the next topic which I enjoyed learning. We all know that mission is the focal point in ministry and I understood that the statement should be positive and precise. This session helped me to refine my mission statement.

Coming to the subject of health and wellness, I know a few things about health and wellness. But being a pastor, I have learned that I should be a role model in health too. I have learned that ‘to do something for God successfully I need to be healthy’. The testimonies are amazing, all the testimonies are encouraging us to be in ministry and get rooted in God. After joining this course, my learning speed has improved I became very much interested in this course. I would also want to tell myself and others that I am very much blessed by the course and the teachers.

Introspection on understanding my Identity

March 28, 2022

I want to thank everyone who was involved in the making of this course. Thank you so much for helping us do a self-introspection on our lives and helping us discover how our lives can or have been steered by our values, which translate to our convictions and finally become our lifestyle. I enjoyed seeing how our timelines reflected these changes as it has helped me put into perspective as well as make better sense of some of the decisions I’ve taken which knowingly or unknowingly were a reflection of the values/convictions I held but couldn’t well articulate till now. So thank you very much and God bless you all.

I have done many online training for my secular job and have not really followed many ministry or biblically orientated online courses but this is absolutely fantastic I loved the accessibility and the engagement that Amelia bring throughout the course as well as the added extras of testimonials and inputs from other leaders and individuals on the course. In summary I would highly recommend this course to anybody trying to gain a better understanding on “Formation of self”

Unless your character is submitted to god and you are committed to living a life of integrity you will not be a faithful leader.

October 27, 2022

This course brought to my interest where I studied what kingdom in the scriptures is. It opens up with the topic BUILDINDING KINGDOM CENTERED CHURCHES. Here Ps Mal Maclead lectured pointing out some five principles for kingdom growth. How to build your church. planting a team and how to be a kingdom leader. He shared some important principles of a true leader is, as being an example of how Jesus chose his disciple being the right people for leadership to work. he made a point that teaching is key for right leadership. tat courage is needed for great leadership. And a great leader of the gospel needs to preach the gospel, to be others focus and to release people to work. what a kingdom church is, is lectured.

On the leader’s character Adrew Grotta said the leader is genuine, real and authentic in the service of God must have your character submitted to God and be committed to living a life of integrity. this will make you a faithful leader.

Understanding my part in God's kingdom

November 2, 2022

The unit opens my understanding to God’s call and how to respond to it. I also learned the differences between gifts and call. Ministry being service and areas I can service. I learned about Church based service, work or market based service and community based service and aligning myself with God’s purpose. I now see call and ministry much better. I pray that God will help me to align myself to his will.

Refining & Reinforcing my Call & Gifts

November 2, 2022

War is happening to my people. I saw war and destruction before the actual war was happening. I tried to war the elites from community. Except few, no one was influenced and warned by my writing and speaking. Then the war erupted and human and material destruction followed.

I left my job and studied the administrative and political history of my people or region for more than two years. I want to articulate their history, values and administration. I believed this is what I can do to my people and region. I believed that is my call for contribution to create dynamic, vibrant and progressive society. The society is decayed due to the communist political forces halt its progress for political power. They see poor and dependent society is good for their power. So when I took this course it reinforced and refined my understanding and acceptance of my call. Thank you very much, especially Regan.

I have learnt alot about how to know that God has called me and the different ways in which God calls people. It’s also interesting that the calling and gifts of God go hand in hand and one need to be careful not to focus on just one of them. We must pray, fast, meditate and learn to listen and recognize the voice of God.

I have taken alot of notes that I will get back to. I found the teachers very clear and systematic in the ways they were delivering the content.

One little thing I struggled was sometimes the amount of information was abit too much in each clip.

I do thank the team who provided these wonderful teachings.

Pastoral Care is much more than I thought it was. I have gained a lot of insight into the role of pastoral care from the history to conflict resolution to self care, etc. I believe this course really prepares one for doing God’s work in caring for others.

I have undertaken similar subjects in the past, what I appreciate is the real life explanation, no jargon as it is a more practical way to remember. greatly enjoyed the subject.

My Journey with AXX

October 25, 2022

I love to study about discipleship because I love to learn and enjoy studying. When I came across Axx courses being advertise, I wasted no time and enrolled to study the courses being offered.

From day one I lived the courses and the method of teaching. I have downloaded the teachings so that I can refer to them time and again when need be.

I have been very blessed with the lessons on preaching. We were taught the subject at Bible school, but it wasn’t as clear as I got it here.

These lessons have helped improve my understanding of the Word of God and also improved my preaching.

You people are doing a great job, you don’t know how much your teachings are bless many of us that cant afford to pay and attend a good Bible school. Apart from that you are helping the truth to be preached and also helping to remove the imposter pastors, as the knowledge of God’s Word increases.

The Lord God Almighty bless you ever so richly.

Me and my wife Kezzy we are at an advanced stage of planting a Church and this lessons are very Vital.

Many a times is when you struggle on how to handle difficult topic. But with the topic having addressed here it has helped in knowing it’s not what I say that matters but rather it’s how I say it.

God bless you.

Sermon Design and Delivery

October 25, 2022

This topic blessed me so much. I have learnt that a sermon points to someone greater than the preacher [Jesus]. Preaching is to proclaim the good news of a king and his kingdom. The gospel does not come in words only but in power and Holy Spirit.

I also learnt how to address difficult topics in preaching which touches areas like marriages, sexuality and forgiveness. You need to be empathy and sensitive to people’s pain.
