Steward, GFA behind-the-scenes missionary, shares about his experience with GFA’s School of Discipleship program.
I had the privilege to be part of the team at GFA that teaches School of Discipleship (SD) students how to share their faith. But it seems like it was just a little while ago that I was a student in the program going through those classes for the first time.
When I was a SD student, I remember waking up each day and praying, “God, today I will interact with so many people that you love and sent your Son to save.
