Review for In The Gap Inc, Oklahoma City, OK, USA
Wow! Before attending In The Gap, I had some experience working with children, but I didn't have a lot of confidence as a teacher or communicator. And though I knew it was important to share the Gospel with others and had heard various ways to approach it, it didn't excite me because I had never really done it and was actually afraid I'd miss something or get something wrong. When I came to In The Gap, I got hands on training in sharing the Wordless Book, preparing lesson plans to teach and hundreds of hours to grow in confidence of teaching. With each level of training, I learned to communicate and lead through influence.
Not only do they teach you how to do practical as well as hands-on skills like: deeper lesson planning, exciting storytelling, leading verses or songs for a large group setting and giving a Bible lesson, but they give you the time to practice and apply it immediately through Character Classes at schools and After-School Bible Clubs. And even exceeding the practical side, you have the opportunity to grow in your personal Walk with God and see answers to prayers daily.
In The Gap didn't prepare me just for the time there, but gave me skills I can use where ever I go as well as build my confidence in areas I never thought I needed.
