Our Graduates

"Just like David, I had leaders that wanted the best for me. However, the armor they were putting on me wasn’t mine. God has given me the opportunity to develop and build the perfect armor with him. He moved me from people that I've know my entire life so that I would begin to listen to His calling that He has for me."

~ Brittany Godby, Class of 2019

“Through RI I have received more revelation and clearer vision of the calling the Lord has placed on my life. God has been using the internship, the leaders of RI, and the opportunities to serve and lead to steward my calling and transform me into the man God created me to be.”

~ Rhees Hancock, Class of 2018

"I’m so grateful for the relationships I’ve built during this year of RI. From our bold, intentional, anointed leaders to the life-giving friends that I’ve made while getting the honor to be apart of Radiant Church. It’s crazy to think that I met these wonderful people just 10 short months ago, yet today I’d consider them nothing less than family. Radiant Intensive, thank you for the best 10 months of my life."

~ Faith Calvert, Class of 2020
