 Through this discipleship training, my eyes were opened to see others through a lens of love.  I learned that it wasn’t all about me, but all about God. Every teaching through His Vessel Ministries is taught on the foundation of truth and sound doctrine.

I have learned a scripturally-based way to have a deeper relationship with God through this discipleship. The small group allowed me to interact with other women who seek this same type relationship with God and who seek to serve God in my community.  I was surrounded by a supportive, non-judgmental community of women who had the same desire to know God.

This teaching transformed my relationship with God, making God real and personable in my life! I long for and love my time alone with God each day. I have gone deeper in my faith, my prayer life, and in the Word. The passion for God that I have acquired through this training is influencing people around me. I am so thankful for this opportunity and want all my friends to experience this as well.

Before beginning this discipleship, I had become a confused person torn between the ways of the world and God. Often bitter at times because I felt I would never get back to God like I truly in my heart desired to be; I found myself worrying about everything, fearful at times, not trusting God. Now once again I know that no matter what, God loves me.  I put God first, being obedient, and trusting Him, with all the circumstances in my life. And because of this discipleship experience, I want to draw closer and closer to God...just because I love Him and He loves me. I want to give Him glory in all that I do. I am reminded exactly why we are glorify God...and I am much more conscious of things I do before I do them in order to glorify Him.  This has helped my relationship with my husband as well, simply because it makes me more appreciative of him and the man of God he is. Even my coworkers see a change in me. I am so thankful that I chose this discipleship class.
