My summer with ACMNP caused me to become a stronger leader in my faith. For the first time I spent a decent amount of time out of the Bible belt and realized that not everyone is a Christian or cares about the Christian faith.
I developed an understanding of what it means to not conform to this world.
God worked through the chances I had to preach this summer. This was the first time that I had ever preached and although I studied and wrote out my entire sermon, every time I stood up to speak, thoughts would come to my head that went with the sermon but I had not written them down.
I am convinced that it was the Holy Spirit at work through me because I know that without God even the sermons I wrote would have been a struggle.
