Meet 1st year S-Rated graduate, Mrs. Amanda Riley! She has completed BAM University's "First Steps in Ministry" with a Scripture-Rating!  Her overall score for the year was a 100-fold!  This means she has qualified as good ground and as the biblical parable of the sower explains, she can expect her harvest accordingly.  We are so proud of her accomplishment.

In one of her final posts she shares her greatest revelation, " The greatest

revelation  I received from "First Steps in Ministry" is that The Kingdom of God is within me! I am born again, therefore I have the kingdom of God in me. There were a couple of huge things that I realized when I learned this The first, is that the Kingdom of God is simply the rule and reign of God, and once I allow that to reign in my life everything else has to submit to that reign. In the kingdom of God there is no room for sickness, demons, depression, etc... Whatever is ruling in your life at that time, rules NO MORE! That was very exciting to me when I finally "saw" that. It that moment I was beginning to see for myself the power of the kingdom of God. The second huge thing I learned in this is that because I have the kingdom of God within me, I am to go and share that good news of the kingdom others. 1 Peter 3:15 says, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." I am a witness of the rule and reign of God!

What a great take away from "First Steps in Ministry!"  

Amanda's future plans are to enroll in BAM Univeristy's 2nd year bible school course, "Finding Your Place in Ministry."  In the meantime, she has joined our Ministry of Helps team and is currently serving in several different capacities of ministry.  

Once again, a congratulations to her for an excellent year in BAM University.
