“I was looking for a Bible School which would be affordable to me to study while I am doing something for living. While Axx has done it, I want to thanks the team at Axx and the founder of the Bible college, your incredible people and thank God for you all. I have learnt alot from the very start to the end. I have many things to say but all I can say for now is thanks to Axx for the great work and the vision God has bestowed on the founder of the school to reach many souls. Your reaching out to me is your reaching out to many souls you haven’t seen physically in Zambia. To me it’s a dream come true after many years of looking for a Bible School. Once again thank you Axx and the team continue revealing Jesus Christ to all the world..”

Sermon Design and Delivery takes you through the journey of learning to understand and apply the necessary skills for writing and preaching a great sermon. I have learned so much and will put this knowledge into practice. This course has been very enlightening and it will help me to write and preach better sermons. I am so thankful.

Shalom, thank you very much for the good work you doing not only to us but for the Glory of God, because I believe it’s one way you are spreading the word of God to the world as your share it to us through the learning.
This is always a blessing to me, each topic we do I really enjoy and get eyes open in many things some of which I thought I knew. I was touched by the part where we talked about gestures and body language, because in most cases we as preachers we tend to forget that when we preach, we are not only communicating with the voice but the gestures, movements we are saying…and if we are not careful, we find that we talking about to different things and leading the church to sometimes misunderstand the message of the day. Also, the importance of establishing a rapport with the church, which makes the church want to listen to what you are saying. Sermon preparation needs preparation and continuous prayer it is not just a wake up and preach thing because it is not about us but about God speaking to His people.
Thank you so much Ministry of Axx (ACTS), we are really blessed

First I thank my lectures John Bergmann and Andrew Groza for taking me through this unit, I have enjoyed the training and I have highly grown spiritually and learnt alot and as a pastor and a preacher I have realised why sometimes I fail on what I do. Thanks Axx bible college and the entire team, I find myself loving preaching more now from what I have learnt , the preaching foundation, challenges of preaching, understanding the text, applying the text, the types of sermons, Sermons preparation, structure and flow of the sermon, I never new there is importance in introduction, creating a solid introduction, the Application here I have learnt how to create a solid Application, the Sermon conclusion, I have learnt how my sermon can end well, I have learnt how to Craft a solid conclusion, I have learnt more on verbal communication, how I can take my audience seriously, I have known the power is a story, even though I have been preaching I haven’t known how I can use my Voice well, through this unit I have learnt and I have started practicing my voice, I have learnt the importance of Body language and engaging my audience, Finally I have learnt Wisdom from my mistakes, hear I have learnt the preaching logistics, the technology, I have learnt more on keeping time, whaaaaaau it was amazing, this unit has helped me and now I know how to carry myself, what I need to do and the questions I need to ask when am going to preach outside my congregation, not forgetting what I have learnt on Difficult topics and how I can deal with fallout that is likely to occur after tackling such topics, God bless Axx Bible college God bless the entire management and the whole team who made this possible in Jesus name

The Axx Ministry,
I have always enjoyed taking Select Learning online courses. I find that the courses are always properly paced for the a Ministering learner (who has other responsibilities in our race, life other than being a student!). Challenging enough without being overwhelming. And always stimulating. I have also appreciated the variety of courses offered.
You haven’t seen the end of me yet! I would like to continue to use Select Learning courses for future Ministry, School Sermons classes. I will keep checking for relevant courses as the years progress.
Thank you for being there for us. God bless you all.
Perspectfully Yours,
– Abraham Deniyi ANIMASAUN
