“Before DBS the Bible was a bit overwhelming to me and I wasn’t sure if I was capable of receiving understanding for myself; especially when it comes to the hard questions or more complex passages. After DBS, that questioning was stripped away and my relationship with my Heavenly Father has gone deeper than ever before.
DBS taught me how to see the Father heart of God. I learned to see God’s justice, faithfulness, and consistency from Genesis to Revelation. My life and relationship with Jesus will never be the same. When I read God’s Word it speaks loudly to me in full color. I cannot get enough of my Father’s words!! DBS equipped me to search out the scriptures for myself and empower me to share what I’ve learned with those around me. DBS was the sweetest time of my entire life.”
Amy Hulehan, 22, USA
“I decided to do a DBS because I wanted to know as much about the Bible as I could. And yes, I learned a lot about the Bible, the historical background and so on. But my biggest gain from the DBS was to learn and see the Bible come alive and active in my own life. The Bible used to be a boring book to me, with a bunch of unrelatable stories and letters. During DBS I got to know how to apply God’s Word to my life and how to be discipled, transformed and guided by it. My life changed so much through that and is still changing. I believe that’s what the Bible is for, to lead us closer to God and to help us to become more like Him.”
Silas Bauer, 21, Germany
Last year, I was part of the ALT course and throughout the year I have been continually reminded of the visual images of the course in the various scenarios of my life. Often in lectures I feel like I can only retain a portion of what the speaker has to say, but I felt in this course I was able to grab hold of so much. I am a very visual person and was very thankful to find a very visual outlet to learn more about leadership.
Aimee, 21, Wisconsin, USA
The ALT course challenged my perspective on leadership and really helped me to have a better understanding of how God wants me to lead others compared to how I naturally lead or had been modelled leadership by others. Each week the concepts discussed introduced a new angle to Christian leadership that I had really never heard before. I also loved the fellowship this course held by being able to meet weekly and reflect on what each of us was learning. I highly recommend that everyone takes this course!
Lauren, 24, USA
I decided to do ALT in order to grow in my leadership. I came out of the course understanding that influence begins with myself. If I want transformation I need a heart revelation of how Jesus led, how to apply it to myself, and how to impart it into others.
Ashley, 25, Washington, USA
The Applied leadership tract was a brilliant course for revealing ways in which my leadership was lacking but not only did it reveal that it also showed how to improve that. By the end of it I felt far more capable as a leader, of others but also of myself. I now feel more confident in my leadership and have a greater sense of knowing what the people I’m leading need.
Calvin, 21, New Zealand
The ALT course helps inspire vision and creates something new about leadership. This course helps you use management skills to guide yourself to the right decisions as a leader, and the Habitudes helped me personally and shaped my view of how to be a great leader for God.
Michael, 20, USA
“One of my highlights of staffing with Marine Reach has been completing ALT. The Habitudes material sparked excellent conversation inside and outside of the classroom, but more importantly, it gave me tools to apply immediately to my own leadership role. Even now, a year after completing the course, I often remind myself to ‘host the relationship’ in my interactions with others, which was one of the first lessons we looked at in ALT. Each week a simple yet profound leadership idea would be presented to me. As I’ve applied those ideas to my life, I feel much more prepared for leadership roles inside or outside of a ministry setting.”
Dani, 31, USA
“Being a part of the Pilgrimage Stream impacted my life for the better. Not only did it teach me how to function in a small community (as we shared the burden of climbing those mountains together), but also how to rely on one another, have fun and worship together, and, most importantly, how to be vulnerable with each other. The focus of our Stream taught me what it looks like to be on a pilgrimage for God. God calls us out of our homes to the wilderness, where we’ll see Him face-to-face, and are forced to fully depend on Him before we receive His inheritance.”
Harty Dumalagan, 21, B.C. Canada
“Last year I decided to seek after God wholeheartedly and applied for the Pilgrimage DTS. Going on this journey (physically and spiritually) has been life-changing! Instead of wandering on my own, I am now following the Almighty God. I have rediscovered a personal and intimate relationship with my Creator!”
