Newest graduates for the “Lifting Up Jesus” Training Program
The most recent Bible Worker training sessions with Karen Lewis, took place at both the Minnetonka and the Southview Seventh-day Adventist Churches. A total of 54 individuals, comprised of both churches, went through this comprehensive 16-week training program, which met weekly from August through December. Many of those who participated are now involved in Bible studies with friends, neighbors, and relatives.
One young man recently told me while passing out certificates, “This certificate means more to me than the one I just received from passing my CPA review”. Another one said, “I have wanted to take a class like this and never had the opportunity until now”. Still another said, “I have grown so much in your class and now see Jesus in a new light”. There is a new excitement about Jesus and a desire to share Him with others.
As a result of these classes, as well as the other two classes held earlier in the year at both The Edge and St. Paul First Seventh-day Adventist Churches, we have a total of 116 personal Bible studies going on, along with over 1,300 from the Discover Bible School. Jesus is truly being lifted up in the Twin Cities!
