Lives Being Changed Impacts Avila Institute Co-Founder

Lives Being Changed

Recently, we asked Dr. Anthony Lilles, co-founder of the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation, what the biggest reward he experiences as co-founder, professor, and support of the Institute. He responded,

Lives are being changed in ways I did not expect.  Some students share how they have encountered the Lord in beautiful and profound ways, and that as a result, they have found strength and new determination to face the challenges and difficulties they confront in their personal lives and in their service to the Lord.  Whenever I hear stories that something that a student read or a truth the was shared in a lecture has unlocked a whole new horizon not only of understanding but of intimacy with the Lord, it encourages me that this work God has begun is truly in His hands.
