I use the things that I learned in my Bible and ministry classes every day. There are times that I can recall exactly which class I learned how to handle a situation with my youth group students or the Bible class where I learned about a topic that I plan to teach about. UNW equipped me to teach the Word of God and to be a leader in the local church.
