New mentors from Africa – Michael and Oluniyi

Michael Hamusira Muyenga (Namibia)

Horizon course is quite a good experience with so much to learn. It has broadened my knowledge and gave me a clear picture of what Youth ministry is and how it should be ministered.
I would like to thank brother Koffi, my mentor for accompanying and guiding me through this wonderful journey. You are indeed a good leader and best mentor, God bless you.
Brother Elias, Dr Jeff, thank you for your assistance. May God bless you all.
I would like to encourage other Youth leaders out there with a passion to serve others to register and do the Horizons course, it is worth doing.
Thank you and God bless us

I got to know about the course through a Baptist Youth WhatsApp group. I have passion for the youth ministry and had been involved in the ministry since 2006. Since then, I had been searching for an opportunity to undergo a training that is designed specifically to train and develop youth workers.
Coming across the youth leadership training of the BWA accorded me the opportunity I have been searching for so many years. It was an answered prayer.
The course is straight forward and simple to comprehend. Among the lessons I learnt during the course include how to write the mission statement, the youth culture and subculture, planning, and budgeting for a youth event. I also learnt the challenges youth face and how to handle them. I also learnt that the youth worker is to give listening ears to the youth and evaluated my motivation for involving in youth ministry. What I like most about the course is that each unit and module come up with practical approach to the youth ministry. I therefore recommend it for all levels of youth leadership, especially for volunteers who may not have had any form of training in youth ministry in the Baptist denomination and beyond.
