'This is by far the best course I have ever attended'

'We have really enjoyed every moment of very day on this course. We have found it challenging, inspiring, informative & applicable'

'All that I was hoping for and more'

'This course is excellent! It's good for the young ones who are planning to go, for the older ones who are in the thick of it and old people, like me, who are looking to see where God can use them in the last lap!'
