FROM PAST RESIDENTS
“Praxis taught me to be teachable. It taught me how to serve the kingdom better and not just in my area, but as a whole body.”
Whitney Gunn, Praxis 2014, Hope Kids Coordinator—Midtown Campus
“If you want engaging mentor and discipleship from some of the best thinkers, visionaries, and leaders out there, then Praxis is for you. If you are passionate about ministry but lack the experience required to make the next step, then Praxis is for you. If you’re like I was, looking to meet that “previous ministry experience required” criteria in order to get where you want to be, then Praxis is for you.”
KJ Julian, Youth Pastor, Commonwealth Chapel
“My experience in Praxis at Hope taught me so much about risk taking and innovative thinking in ministry. I am not naturally a risk-taker but I was so blessed by the ways this program taught me to take risks and see how God comes through when we trust Him.”
Lizzie Keegan, Campus Staff Member, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship
“Praxis is teaching me to Learn how to lead “my way”. I’m learning to be comfortable in my leadership skills and using the best way possible to motivate and influence people to be the best them that they can be.”
Michael Talley, Dallas Theological Seminary grad
