Laverne’s Testimony!

Image

Hi, my name is Laverne Williams and I am in my 3rd and final year of my degree.

Why did I choose Reign… 

Well if I am honest Reign chose me. I had made up my mind to not let age be a barrier to finally undertaking my degree and so I began the search for a university.

I would say my desire was to learn more about the Bible and how to do this well with the young people I was working with at church.

I signed up to a University in Birmingham but this just didn’t seem to fit with my work and was a little despondent, I spoke to my boss about it, who shared about ForMission as his wife had recently completed her MA with them, and so the journey began. 

I started late September, but in November, after ForMission had a conversation with my pastor, it was determined that I was on the wrong course and agreed that I was to move to the Reign campus in January – and so my journey with Reign began.

What stood out for me with Reign, was their openness and willingness to effect change, even if that was from within. 

This community is outstanding, I have never known anything like it.

I admit that at the beginning, I had a few reservations as I was unsure that there would be a diverse culture or whether I would fit in. I was certainly proven wrong. There are people here from all walks of life and from different parts of the world. I also thought my age would be a barrier, but again I was wrong.

I absolutely love, love, love my Reign family.

Would I recommend Reign? 

Without a shadow of a doubt!

From the lecturers to logistics, this community of people love God and love their students! They are passionate about mission, discipleship and very much about aiding you in figuring out what your ministry is and then propelling you into it! 

This journey with Reign has certainly been one of self-discovery and one that has strengthened my relationship with God… and I’ll leave with a degree – I couldn’t ask for more!
