How Three Years At World Revival School of Ministry Can Change Your Life

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

With graduation only a few weeks away, the journey I’ve been on the past three years almost seems surreal. 

When I started at World Revival School of Ministry, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. All I knew was that I had heard God, and I was going to respond.

I didn’t realize how much things would change in the school over three years. I didn’t know the deep friendships I would develop from spending everyday around the same people. I didn’t know that the classroom full of new students my second quarter would become so few graduating at the very end. I also didn’t know how much freedom I would find. What used to be a strong dislike and fear of public speaking is now a grace and anointing to be able to preach and speak to advance the Kingdom of God. What started as notebooks full of lyrics have now turned into worship songs that can help create the atmosphere of heaven.

The school of ministry gives so many opportunities for success and growth that you would have to try very hard not to change. The truth is, you’re surrounded by teachers and other students who only want good for you and to see your life get better. We pray for each other, encourage each other, and change together. We’ve stayed up late together trying to study for Pastor Aaron’s tests (many times), and we’ve laid on the floor crying out for more of God in too many classes to count. Change is much less intimidating when everyone else in the room is experiencing the same thing.

It’s impossible to pursue God for any length of time and it not change you. Actually, if I were the same person I was three years ago, I’d ask for a refund (not really because it would be my fault for not changing). Three years in the school has changed the way I think and the way I live. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into, but given the chance, I would do it all over again.
