On Saturday we celebrated our Message Academy students and commissioned them to go in boldness sharing the gospel in the next chapter of their lives. As we celebrated, it was amazing to see all God’s been doing in and through them over the past year.
Just one of the stories we heard was from Joel. ‘Three weeks ago, we went to Wales to get involved in street evangelism and spend time serving at a group for those experiencing homelessness.
‘At this group, we led worship and I got to share my testimony with a lad called Gruffydd. He’d been released from prison a week before and was really questioning what he wanted to do with his life. As we talked, Gruffydd shared how he was feeling and I grabbed the opportunity to pray with him and tell him more about the love, hope and peace that Jesus offers.
‘I then asked if he wanted to invite Jesus into his life and Gruffydd said yes! So we prayed together and he accepted Jesus – it was such a lovely moment and showed me again that God can use me to do anything for his glory if I just stay obedient and step out.’
Do you know a young person aged 17-25 who’d love to explore and grow in their giftings, catch God’s heart for the least, the lost and the last, and grow in their boldness to share the good news of Jesus wherever they go? Then tell them about Message Academy – our 10-month programme. Find out more at message.org.uk/academy
