What Influences My Decision
After a lifetime of being a church attender, I have decided to follow my calling, based on my favourite part of the bible to be found in John 14 (NIV) whereby Jesus asserts that “My Father’s house has many rooms….I am going there to prepare a place for you”.
I want to grow a free church where anyone is welcome; irrespective of creed, politics, social status, colour and anything else that sometimes blocks people from access to a church. Furthermore, I want people to feel they are in a safe environment.
What I Want To Do
As part of that, having studied theological courses on an ad hoc basis, I am now aiming to gain a BA Theology to equip me for ministry – I want to ensure I gain knowledge from those who have been before me in ministry as well as being able to demonstrate a sound understanding the Bible.
I am keen to study at Nazarene Theological College in Manchester, because they provide the best course that is most suitable to my needs.
Initially, I will study for the Certificate in Theology to ensure the path I am treading is a solid one before continuing to complete the BA.
Therefore, I am fundraising purely for the Certificate, not the whole degree, the total being £8,800 (£7,800 for the course plus £1,000 to cover sundries such as books and travel expenses ).
Why I Am Crowdfunding
The reason I am crowdfunding is that I am not eligible for any money from Student Finance due to my previous qualifications (I already have a degree in Business and Computing) and also my savings are not sufficient to pay for the course.
Even if you are not able to donate, your prayers will be much appreciated as I make my journey and transition to serving God and bringing God’s love to all.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
