- How ya doin'?
Capernwray has been a transformative time, changing my perspective from walking next to God to being fully dependent on Him. My experience also would not have been the same if it wasn’t for the rock solid community that is fostered here. As I progressed through the semester it suddenly became less about the faith I was learning about and more about our God I was growing in relationship with. My God is unchanging in his character and unfailing in his love. Moving forward Capernwray has equipped better to share my faith with others while continuing to grow deeper in my relationship with Jesus Christ.”
From the moment I arrived God showed me how much I truly needed Him. From the staff, to the community, to the beautiful landscapes around me, it was truly evident how much I do need Him. From coming here I have made friendships that are Christ based that will last a lifetime, but I’ve also obtained the courage and knowledge to share the Gospel proudly, and most importantly I’ve learned what it truly means to be a follower of Christ and be in fellowship with Him. Through lectures and those around me, I have fully understood that I am a daughter of Christ and He loves me, even with all of my quirks. I knew that coming here was something that I really wanted. What I didn’t realize until attending BDM, is that this was something I needed, not just wanted.”
My time here at Capernwray has been a whirlwind of a year. It’s been filled with laughter, tears, spiritual highs, and spiritual valleys. Being surrounded by a body of believers I wouldn’t want to experience such things anywhere else. I have regenerated from a broken hurting mess to a new beautiful creation in Christ. HE has put me back together piece by piece through lecturers, my peers, the staff, and the beauty of nature that surrounds us. And because of that, it’s my desire that all young adults get to encounter similar things... and Capernwray is definitely a good start!
My experience at Capernwray was a time full of adventures, friendships, and growth. It was a season where my head knowledge became a transformation of my heart through the Gospel and truth of Jesus Christ. Being at Capernwray didn’t just deepen my understanding of who Christ is, but rather showed me who Christ is in me. I learned that His indwelling life is a constant moment by moment reality and freedom of “not I, but Christ”. My life is no longer about me anymore, but rather my life belongs to Him. This has become for me the most pivotal part of my life, as I continue to deepen my dependence in Christ, and appropriate the Joy and Hope I can only have in Him alone. Capernwray isn’t just a place to be, but it’s a place to call home
