Paul's Testimony

“After University, I started work as a management consultant with one of the Big Four global professional services firms. After two years, however, I felt the pull of God, to serve Him more intentionally. This led me to studying full-time at MST and I’m now the Intern Pastor of the young adults in a local church. MST has helped me not only grow in my understanding of the Scriptures but also enlightened me and enabled me to remove some of the planks from my own eyes. I am now able to see more clearly as I lead and guide the congregation I serve.”
