Sydney has been a part of the church fellowship at the Christian Training Center since she was young but stepping into the roll of an intern this summer was a completely new world for her.

Founder of Auntie Anne’s shares how Christian faith saved her from sexual abuse, suicide

At first glance, Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne’s, encompasses the American Dream: A Mennonite farmer, she grew her business from a single stand in 1987 into the world’s largest hand-rolled soft pretzel franchise.

Beiler’s success, however, was forged after years of depression and shame stemming from tragedy in her life, including devastating personal loss, an abusive sexual relationship, and spiritual manipulation.

“Without God, there would be no Auntie Anne’s today. I can say that with confidence,” Beiler told The Christian Post. “I would’ve died. I was about to run away and start a new life. Instead, God said, ‘Get up off your knees.’ What I know now is that all of the things I’ve experienced have been for a purpose; out of my pain, purpose was born.”

Let God Take Your Burdens

Jedidiah Wright testifies about forgiveness and letting Jesus take his burdens.

All things have been entrusted to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son desires to reveal him.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Matthew 11:27-29 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The Power of Testimony

“Your testimonies; the things the Lord does in your life, good and bad because in God there is no bad. He takes the bad and turns it into good. They are your prophecies. They’re the stories you have to tell wherever you go, and God will use them to touch multitudes.”

This Sunday we were blessed to have Bill Eubank, longtime friend of the ministry and CTCI board member, share with us on the blessings the Lord has given us through the testimonies He has given us and their impact on others.

In The Beginning … of The Inn

In The Beginning … of The Inn
(from my perspective … Tracy Fesperman Collins)

Some time, in the early 1970’s, Jay and Sally Fesperman looked at and bought the Wayah Valley Inn. And, yes, as the story goes, they were looking for a one-room cabin. They needed a place to allow themselves to get away from life and all that was going on in the day-to-day world. Jay was very much involved with business, traveling and entertaining clients. From the first heart episode that Jay had (early 1960’s), Sally was very purposeful in seeing that they lived a healthy lifestyle! When the original doctor asked about exercise, Jay’s answer was “I run to catch planes!” That is when a new pattern of exercise and relaxation began – golf! They never rode in golf carts; they always walked the course. So, in 1970, when they felt the need to have a place to get away and relax, they began looking in Franklin, North Carolina. They loved the mountains, the slower pace and the golf courses!

And the name ??? I have lots of childhood memories! One of the most comforting things I remember was the fact that every morning, at 5 AM, my parents (Jay and Sally) were having their Quiet Time

A Time of Refreshing | Crandalls In YWAM St. Croix Missions

(A wonderful testimony from the Crandall family who recently attended our “INNvision” Family training here at CTCI)

A Time of Refreshing

Posted on March 17, 2014 by brianjackic

In mid-February, Brian and I (and the kids) had the opportunity to go to the mountains in North Carolina for a 2 week training program at the Christian Training Center International.  It was such a beautiful time of connecting with the Lord and growing as a family!  The main focus of our teaching was on what it looks like to be a Godly family and honor each other according to the Lord’s standards found in Scripture.  It can be really easy to decide what is best for our family based on our culture, background, media, etc.  These 2 weeks were devoted to diving into the Word and discovering God’s original design and plan for family.
1924815_10203308339456159_704549778_n

We stayed at the INN, which is the main building on the CTCI campus.  Similar to our YWAM base,
