"My experience with the Leaders Arise Leadership Class taught by Dr. DJ included the importance of understanding the five-fold ministry as it relates to fine-tuning my role in ministry. What I gained from this experience was increased insight concerning “iron sharpening iron” (Proverbs 27:17) and the  encouragement to “write the vision and make it plain.” (Habakkuk 2:2)"

"I'll forever be so grateful to God for connecting me with Dr. Donna and the Leaders Arise course. I had no idea what my yes would entail yet now I see my Lord more clearly and am determined not to look back! I can definitely say that this course has truly enlightened me to things I had always wanted to know.  I am so very grateful! I won’t go back to where I was! I am looking forward to continued growth in the Tree Of Life Institute of Biblical Studies!"

"Connecting with Apostle Donna-Jeanne has been such a blessing for me, and necessary for my walk in ministry and the call of God on my life. I praise God for allowing our paths to cross, and for the phenomenal training that I've received in the Leaders Arise Training. Dr. Donna-Jeanne Christopher is definitely doing Kingdom work!"

"For the first time through the training and leadership of Apostle Donna-Jeanne Christopher, and her institute, I understand my calling. The training challenged me, strengthened me, and placed me on the true path God had destined and ordained for me!"

"My encounter as a student in the Leader Arise Leadership program has been one of the best decisions of my life.  This program is designed to awaken your spiritual potential into the office of the five-fold ministry and what is required as a servant leader according to Jeremiah 3:15 and Isaiah 61.   I really did not fully know nor understood what to expect however, I was confident this is where God wanted me to be.  I have been challenged in both my personal growth and spiritual development and learned how to be strong and steadfast as I continue to do the work in the Lord. I respectfully am honored, humbled, and grateful for this experience.  I look forward to continuing my training, education, and ministry under the Leadership of Dr. Donna-Jeanne Christopher."
