For Glory Destura, Immerse student and Director of Children’s Ministry at Burnett Fellowship Church in Maple Ridge, building God’s Kingdom is her main focus. Glory signs all her emails with “FTK (For The Kingdom), Glory“. Her love for her Lord and Saviour and her heart for children is a joy to witness. Glory directs the Kingdom Kids service each Sunday and she meets with a handful of young girls for prayer and mentorship each week. She exclaims, “Exciting things are happening! We launched Kingdom Kids to meet three major goals. They were, BELONG to a Caring Community, BELIEVE in God’s Kingdom, and BUILD Faith by Empowering Parents. My heart is full of gratitude and thankfulness for the amazing work God is doing at Burnett Fellowship and also for the many faithful people who give to support the Immerse Program – Thank you!”
Upon completing the Immerse program Glory will have earned an accredited Masters of Divinity degree while gaining invaluable ministry experience serving at Burnett.
Tom Drinkwater, one of our more recent Immerse students is the Children’s Ministry Director at Central Baptist in Victoria. Tom loves to have FUN and share JESUS with the children and families in Victoria: “I have the great privilege to work on a staff team at Central that is very supportive and it’s great to see the kids getting excited about God, their faith and sharing the Good News.”
Tom is on a life journey to serve Jesus: “The Immerse program is helping to highlight my ministry strengths, as well as tending to areas that need growth. I am on a journey to keep learning, keep improving and serve our Lord as best I can, in the context He has called me and gifted me. Thanks to all who support Immerse! ”
