Reflection is so valuable!

September 22, 2021

We don’t grow from experience, we grow from reflecting on our experience. This course has been a great opportunity to reflect on some of the things I’ve learned in ministry the hard way! So good to look back and see growth.

Romans 16:19 says, ‘to be excellent at what is good. Be innocent of evil’. That is my daily task. MPD has helped me develop strategies for self awareness, other awareness and loving on God’s people and His creation. I pray God’s hand over Axx ministry, the teachers, guest speakers and volunteers. It is with faith, I pray that God’s word will not return void but by the Holy Spirit will complete it’s intended work. Amene.

Educational in nature

October 25, 2022

This is a very educational module. Since I am still in the early stages of my ministry and without a congregation, it is at times challenging to play into the scenarios. However, this is a really good module and lthough it might take some time, I am sure to apply these tools to my personal life and utilise same to enhance my own and other ministries.
