My time at the Ezra Institute has been absolutely life changing. While I had developed a strong Christian faith over the course of my life, I found myself learning about pivotal moments in Christian thought and having core Christian principles articulated to me in ways that I had never heard before. Not only did I find myself growing in insight and understanding about Christianity as a worldview and the Gospel as a call to action, but I found myself surrounded by likeminded individuals who shared a similar vision, commitment, and passion for advancing the Kingdom of God. Since my time here, I have consistently drawn on the concepts and principles that were communicated to me to advocate for and advance the Kingdom of God in day-to-day conversations and interactions with believers and non-believers alike. In short, I have benefitted significantly from the work of the Institute, and I would commend it to anyone who is looking to increase their knowledge of what a Biblical worldview looks like in practice.
