Testimonials from Former Students
Read what some of our amazing former students have to say about studying with us and being part of our learning community…
I embarked on study with The Light College taking part in the part-time FDA in ‘Theology, Mission and Evangelism’. It had been over 25 years since I had last taken any academic studies. I was, therefore, fairly anxious about taking up the course. My hope was that I would gain more knowledge and experience about God, my faith and its application in sharing it with others.
After 3 years of study, what I have gained is so much more than knowledge. I feel I have been empowered and equipped with a deeper faith, a love for Jesus which is beyond measure and have had my heart opened to many aspects of the Christian life that have deeply enriched myself and others around me. My initial fears of study were far outweighed by the love and encouragement I received from both staff and fellow students, but also by my deepened personal relationship with God.
I would encourage anyone who was considering studying with the Light college not to do so unless you are prepared to have your life changed for the better! I can only say, for me, this course and College is so much richer than just a qualification and a certificate, it is a window to life in its fullest and a faith that will be stretched and strengthened.
This course has radically changed my mindset from negative to positive when I hear the words ‘mission and evangelism’.
The reasons for this change include the engaging teaching for the module and a developing excitement of engaging with God and discovering what fits my shoes.
Studying with the Light College was so much more than gaining academic and theological knowledge, it was a place of spiritual encouragement and growth, a place where loving Jesus and growing in our spiritual gifts in order to share Jesus with others was the focus. The community of people was the highlight for me, meeting like-minded people from all walks of life; laughing together, sharing experience and becoming great friends. I would really recommend studying here for anyone who wants to be challenged to share Jesus & grow their faith.
I applied to The Light College as a reluctant scholar, as someone who prefers practical learning. On my first weekend I was welcomed and reassured of assistance throughout my learning experience, which gave me confidence right from the beginning. I received all the help and guidance I needed and was also well looked after pastorally, so much so I stayed on to study for the BA course.
I also pursued my calling into Baptist Ministry through The Light College. The practical approach of the course enabled me to enjoy the study and has encouraged me to read and reflect beyond my college experience. The modules have been really useful and timely in my current role as associate minister and have been valuable in assisting my leadership through the Covid pandemic.
I would wholeheartedly recommend The Light College to anyone wanting to develop their missional skills and to deepen their personal faith.
