We Are Built For Community

One of the things you hear from our students time and time again is that one of the best parts of their experience with Reign Ministries is the community that they become a part of when they’re with us. We asked a former member of staff, Ryan Murphy, to write a little bit about why he thinks community is so important – and why it’s something we are really passionate about!

I am convinced the Father uses our communities and relationships to help us grow and encourage us as we seek to become more like Jesus and build His kingdom.

Ryan Murphy

It’s never surprising to hear stories of how rich and impactful living in a community was for students who have participated in a gap year programmes. It’s not surprising, because we are designed to live in community and be in relationship with one another!

Having personally benefited from a gap year experience, I remember well the moments of invitation and challenge, love and hardship, laughter and late nights. I am convinced the Father above uses our communities and relationships to help us grow and encourage us as we seek to become more like Jesus and build His kingdom.

We want our degree programme to be a place where you will be loved, cared for, supported, encouraged, challenged, and helped to grow as you earn a BA (Hons) degree in the context of your local youth ministry setting. We aim to create an environment and culture that cultivates family.

Are you are in a place where your gap year is coming to an end? Are you are unsure what community looks like for you in what the Lord has next? Then maybe you could consider studying with Reign Ministries?

We want our degree programme to be a place where you will be loved, cared for, supported, encouraged, challenged, and helped to grow as you earn a BA (Hons) degree in the context of your local youth ministry setting. We aim to create an environment and culture that cultivates family. You will hopefully meet and learn alongside those who will become family and friends that will last a lifetime!

If you ask one of our students what a highlight of studying with Reign is, time and time again the answer comes back as being part of a community where they are supported and cared for.

This could be your learning environment for the next three years and we would love it if you would come and be a part of it!

His servant heart and capacity for many different roles makes him invaluable to what we do. Weekly he can be seen doing finances, helping plan mission weeks, creating videos or managing the building we own.
