"Counties One 2 Lead TEAM Gap year has taught me how to put training into practice and engage with the church and the wider community. The training that is provided on the gap year course is to a very high standard and is something that I will continue to use on completion of the program. Counties has taught me that there are many ways that we can serve the church all we need to do is to give them a go. All of the Counties staff members and training personnel have been approachable and very supportive in equipping me as I seek to serve the Lord."
