Student Feedback


Jeremiah Paye, Liberia (SLM, New Staff Training in Nigeria):

“I have seen myself in a new way and have appreciated my uniqueness as a person and as a leader. Knowing the fact that I am unique has encouraged me to develop my weakness. My passion for what God has called me to do have been renewing in way that is rewarding and inspiring. I have developed some new habits that are helping me to be more effective.”

Augustine Mahlangu, Zimbabwe (National SLM Catalytic leader):

“I now see that the privilege of leading God’s people has a correlation with one’s ability to lead self. The reality of knowing my own God-given strengths, weaknesses, and my personal style of leadership has made me see the necessity of diversity in a team leadership context. This has been a big help to the team of student leaders I work with in Zimbabwe.”

Clemence Fomever, Ghana (National Finance/Operations):

“Since I serve in the finance area, I have come to understand that leadership is stewardship with solid character. I am grateful for my coaches and the practical nature of the lessons, not only to demonstrate excellence in this field but also to lead others who will in turn lead others, hence forming a chain of excellent finance (resource) stewards.”

Adantsi Richard, West Africa Area Office (HR leader):

“As a wife and mother, [GATL] affords me a developmental opportunity while caring for the home front and modeling godly self-discipline and hard work to my young children. I have also experienced great transformation in my outlook on life and the discharge of my responsibilities, learning that my availability is key in my mission involvement while God equips me. [GATL] has helped me break through lack of confidence, fear of failure, and lack of dependence on God.”
