Andreas course 2017

Invitation for Andreas course 2017

You can make your dreams come true. But you don’t have to do it on your own!

Together, we will explore the barriers to reaching your dreams, and learn how to make the best choices for your future.

Join the ‘Andreascourse’ and discuss essentials of Christian faith in a creative and interactive learning process!

Start:  Monday 13 February ‘17 @ 19.00, Chapel Oude Kerk, Delft

More explanation about the course

Tough questions may bother us like:

‘How do I know that the choices that I make are right ones?’ – ‘What if I succeed in my study, but fail in my relationships?’ – ‘Who is God and how can I trust Him in guiding my way in life?’ – ‘Why is there so much evil around in the world and how can I deal with it?’

 There are no simple answers to this kind of questions. Often more basic question are behind, like: ‘Why am I here on earth and what is my destination in life?’ or ‘Is there a God and if so, how can I know Him?’

If you want to find answers to honest life questions, the ‘Andreascourse’ might help you. It implicates learning and discussing in an open and intercultural setting, while sharing a meal with interesting people.

“While I was searching for a good foundation of my career here in Delft – and I am an ambitious person!- I had big doubts about a higher being and why (a) God should be relevant for me. During the Andreas course I began to discover that the living God was already searching for me. I began to experience a reality of love that I never experienced before. The course enabled me to become sensible and respond to his love.” (Renshi, PHD student Delft  )

Why is it called Andreas course?

The apostle Andreas started as a disciple of John the Baptist and discovered Jesus. He was very keen to share this with his brother Simon. Andreas in one sentence means: discover and share Jesus!  Andreas course is offered as a follow-up of the Alpha course, but you can follow it without having participated in Alpha course.
