“That was super life changing,” Rebekah says of living with the other SD girls. “We got to go to class and read these character-building books, and not only did we have that in our heads as knowledge, but we got to express that and act that out in our house.”
Rebekah recalls how, at the start of her SD year, deep friendships between her housemates did not seem likely. But as they grew more like Christ, they learned to put others first. They walked through life together month after month, and a precious bond formed between the SD girls. They found unity and Christ-centered love, and their friendships continued long after graduation.
“It’s not just a year of discipleship and discipline, but it’s a lifetime . . .” —Rebekah
‘Being Filled with the Fruits of Righteousness’
School of Discipleship students pray, study and serve alongside the staff at GFA’s administrative headquarters in Texas, which provides countless discipleship opportunities. But although students experience an environment saturated with prayer, worship and seeking God, it is still up to each student to personally pursue their Savior.
“It’s a heart decision we have to make,” Rebekah explains. “I would not be where I am if I didn’t give the Lord a chance to speak to me, to cleanse me, and for me to surrender my life to Him.”
At the end of their year, many students say one of the most impactful take-aways from their time at GFA is the emphasis on prayer and unity.
