Be Transformed was a step out in faith to follow God’s calling on my life.
The teaching helped me grow closer to God, and grew my understanding of His word, which equipped me for working with young people.
It was an amazing year of being supported by SWYM to grow academically and spiritually. I now feel inspired to step out in faith in new ways.
