“AIR gave me experience and instruction to grow into the leader that I could be while nurturing the leader that I was. It also taught me different aspects of ministry and life and gave me the tools for how to grow in those areas.”
“AIR taught me about emotional intelligence and how to lead those around me, especially those older than me. I also learned more about spirituality and the power of prayer in my leadership.”
