I moved to Heidelberg, a small little town in the Western Cape, to slow down from the busyness of the city life and focus on Jesus.
What an awesome experience it’s been to far! 3rd year has been so much more than I have hoped for, the balance between receiving classes on Business, Leadership and Ministry along with helping leadership run the college have been so good. I never thought I’d enjoy learning about business as much as I’ve been. With world class instructors, my entire way of thinking has changed on Business and the corporate world, and how we as Christians can run a company or organisation on Godly principles.
Many times people believe that when you come to college you have to become a minister, pastor or evangelist. It could not be further from the truth! We need Christians in every area of life, including business! So why not learn from the greatest business man of all time? Jesus! He started the greatest organisation in just 3 years that changed the course of history forever, and continue to! 3rd year has taught me how to be a leader!
I’m only 22 now and I never saw myself as a leader. Through the amazing teachings and instructions from World Class Ministers my heart has been enlarged. I’ve been taught how to be a leader in the place where I am now, but I have also been taught how to think bigger, dream bigger and trust God for bigger things in life! It makes me excited to know about all the things God has put inside of me, and how I can change people’s lives through Him and His principles!
I’ve discovered new things I love, hopes and desires whiles facilitating classes, ministering to the student body and arranging a missing trip. This would not have happened if I was just a student, but thanks to the amazing 3rd year program of practical training this was made possible!
Charis Bible College Heidelberg has been incredible and I would not have wanted to do it any different!
