READ WHAT OUR ALUMNI HAVE TO SAY

“In the Intensive training, I learned to be humble & to be loved by someone like Jesus. Because I never experienced love from my own father, to have a father that loves me as much as Jesus does, brings me so much freedom.

I have gained a vision for how I will grow the Kingdom in my community. I am the Church and will continue to be His Church in my community.”

AGNESS // ZAMBIA

“I came into Poetice with more questions than answers. I was weeding out possibilities of God’s provision and overall sovereignty over my life, and it was getting to a point where deception was creeping in so slyly.

When I stepped foot on base, a literal wave of peace came over me, and I knew that the Lord was ready to wipe my heart clean and give it a makeover. With half-open arms I came into worship and sessions expectant of possible answers, instead, I got the message, “all or nothing.” What a conviction. As the Lord has proceeded to reveal Himself to me, I have been challenged to fully open my arms with grace for myself and attention to the Lord, fully laying down every part of my life and picking up my own cross to follow Him.

I still have a long way to go. Dying to yourself is exhausting, but I can confidently say that I have met the Lord here and have since been actively longing to pursue Him – a powerful shift from where I was a few weeks ago, and I don’t want to ever lose that vision. Lord, tune my heart to sing Thy grace.”

“The classes for me have just been life-changing. I have been challenged and saw God just restore me, reveal Himself to me, shower me with words of affirmation and help me erase all the misconceived ideas I had of Him.”

“The intensive program exceeded any expectations that I could have walked in with. Looking back on it now, the faithfulness and intentionality of God are astounding. He put me here at this time, with these people, and it is so much greater than I could have ever imagined. The people here became family; the people here stood next to me and supported and loved me exactly where I was at. I have been surrounded by a community that deeply understands the meaning of being the body of Christ and just six weeks in that community can have the biggest impact on your life. It’s been full of intentional teachings and practices so that this isn’t the most impactful two months of my life, but it prepares me to go out and continuously engage in Kingdom work. It is almost unbelievable to think about myself on the first day compared to myself entering week six, and change like that can be messy and hard, but it has been the most beautiful experience.”

CORINA // CANADA

“I feel a calling toward international missions that comes from my passion for people and love of Jesus. Before coming to the Intensive, I knew that I wanted to help people, especially through the sphere of Sign Language Interpreting, but was unsure of what that would look like for me. Now, it has been solidified in my spirit that I must seek out the lost to tell people about the greatest love they’ll ever know. Whether that is using sign language or not, that is my calling above all else.

I hope to never live the same way as I did before the training. I have encountered the Lord in a way that I no longer will simply push Him to the side as an addition to my life, but have Him as my foundation and lifelong pursuit. I pray that I no longer pull from my own strength, but let Him use me as His vessel.”

BELLE // USA

JAEDON

“When I decided to participate in the 2021 Poetice Intensive, I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. Little did I know exactly what the Lord had in store for me. From the moment I met my other students, I knew this year was gonna be special. Throughout the course of the last 6 weeks, I’ve seen God move through other people and I’ve experienced God moving through me. The teachers we listened to have all clearly been anointed by God to teach and their passion for their respective topics was nearly tangible. The relationships built with the people in the nearby communities will be ones I won’t be able to forget, and the nightly worship has been crucial to my personal growth in my relationship with the Lord.”

JAEDON // ZAMBIA

“I thank God for what he has done in life during the training. I have been challenged spiritually. Now that I am going back home my prayer is that God uses me as an instrument of change starting with my family, work, church, town, and everyone around me to share the love of God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Through using my story and the skills God has blessed me with, such as coaching lives to bring more souls in the kingdom of God, so that together can impact many souls for Christ.”

“This experience has vehemently changed my view of evangelism in a few ways. Firstly, my understanding was steeped less in the power of God and more in Apologetics. I thought to tell people about God, it would be more of a debate than this experience. The second is that evangelism is less talking, and more witnessing God work.”

COURTNEY

“I came to Choma for the first time in 2019 and this place completely rocked my world. I had no idea the impact a true relationship with the Lord could have. At the time, I remember doubting my plans to be a teacher and debated whether I should be working with kids or not. But God quickly made me aware that whatever I do in life, it has to be with kids. Now, 2 years later, through this Intensive training, there has been even more confirmation from the Lord of my heart for this place and my ability to impact the lives of children wherever He takes me.”
