I’m really happy and inspired that I took part in the Metamorphic community transformation program in Ukraine in 2021. This program really did transform my vision and mindset; so much so that I am permanently changed. The teaching about cave and kingdom churches was a radical departure from what I had been bought up to believe and also experience.This is what my story is about.
I’ve been in church since I was born, 27 years ago. My vision was focused on my church. To show honor to my people. And I was sure I was right. I didn’t know about the subject cave and kingdom church. I was really touched by what the teachers were saying and now realise that I can and should be a blessing to my whole community. In fact what I was taught at metamorphic was that I should pastor my community not just my church. That is what I have begun to do, and it is helping me to build trust and influence at the same time. Now my plan is not just for a few people in my Sunday service but rather a plan for the whole community to benefit, as a result of Gods great love. I now see my community differently and realise that God has a plan for every persons life and those plans are to bless and reconcile people to Himself and to lead them into abundant life.
The metamorphic program was a really useful experience and really practical. I often take part in a lot of different programs. Some of them lack practical teaching and some lack theory. But in this program, nothing was lacking, it was highly practical and had valuable theory and principles behind it. It has been amazing to be a part of something that gives purpose and then empowers us to practically outwork that purpose. This program was built in such a way that it is moving and pushing me to bring into action what I learned. I now see the church very differently. I also see other people differently, and I see myself differently. But most of all I see my God differently. He is a big God who creates big futures. This is exactly what I needed.
