Two key factors motivated me to explore and ultimately decide to take West Park’s Training Program. First, as a Christian of many years, I have always read the Bible regularly, but, admittedly, I have not always been as consistent through the years in deeper study. Second, my innate desire to learn and be intellectually challenged by deeply exploring the history of the Bible and doctrines of our faith.
Thus, my questions were: Would this course help me more consistently and deeply study God’s Word? Would it be a satisfying and challenging learning experience? Would I enjoy the experience itself, the various books, lectures, interaction with other participants, etc.? Could I keep up with the necessary reading and other assignments? Would I ultimately experience growth in my knowledge of God’s Word and grow as a Christian to be better equipped to impact others and be personally enriched as a believer?
The answer to all these questions is a resounding, “YES!” The Training Program has far exceeded my expectations! I have been challenged and “spiritually stretched” in unexpected ways! While it has been a tremendous intellectual experience as many questions about the Bible and doctrines are deeply explored, this course is far more devotional than anticipated! It has brought me into a new focus and enjoyment of God’s Word! The further and more deeply this course dives into the great questions and doctrines of our faith and the magnitude of what Christ did for us, the greater my love for our Lord becomes!
If any of the questions I had resonate with you, I highly recommend West Park’s Training Program as a challenging and enriching experience to deepen your knowledge of the Bible and the doctrines of our faith, and to increase your wonder and awe of our Lord!
