Kate McVeigh remarks, “RHEMA Bible Training Center gave me the knowledge necessary to have a successful ministry. At RHEMA, I received the foundation I needed to get started and the wisdom to continue to grow in ministry through a strong relationship with Jesus and following God’s will. RHEMA has always been an encouragement to me and to my ministry. RHEMA is a vital part of so many ministries, churches, and missions.
