Past Students Said…
“This workshop was very interesting, and was exactly what I was hoping it would be. I learned a lot. The instructor was very helpful and staying in touch with us. I will recommend this course to my friends!”
“I thought the course provided a very good introduction regarding the use of prayer beads, why and how they are used, and the goal of a deeper prayer relationship with God. It is wonderful that protestant denominations are discovering the help that prayer beads can provide.”
“I enjoyed taking this course about something I knew nothing about. I learned a lot and benefited from the interactions with peers and Todd. Thanks very much!”
“This is my first BeADisciple course, but it certainly won’t be my last! I truly appreciated Rev. Todd Vick’s leadership and will keep an eye out for other courses he may teach. I like self-paced learning, as well as interaction with other students. This course was right on target in terms of its content, design, and the way that students were encouraged to make comments to help and encourage each other.”
“I really enjoyed this class. I had absolutely no knowledge of how to use prayer beads, and now understand some of the history and theology, and have experienced two ways to use the beads. I have enjoyed the interaction with the other participants. The prompts on the discussion board were appropriate and generated plenty of dialogue. I would definitely recommend this course to others.”
