On July 15th, the Amagara Bible Institute of Discipleship and Evangelism (ABIDE) ministry of Juna Amagara graduated its fifth class of young men.  As Director Matt Kehn said, “God is powerfully working in these graduates’ lives.

“Now a total of 59 students have successfully completed the intense six month residential discipleship program,” he said. “They testify to the transformation upon their lives through God’s work at ABIDE.  Jonathan says ‘ABIDE is one of the best, if not the best thing that has happened to me in my life. I am a more confident and determined follower and servant of Jesus.’ This young man is now studying engineering at an elite engineering university in Japan on a full ride scholarship. The graduates continue to carry that personal transformation forward to positively influence their churches, schools and communities for Christ. CLICK HERE to read student stories.

“This training is not easy,” Kehn adds.  “It is intellectually intense, sometimes physically demanding, it pushes the individual to develop communications and thinking skills, it requires concentration, dedication and a sense of humor.  But for those who complete it, we are fully confident they are going to impact the world around them for Christ.”
