I have encountered all sorts of mental health conditions, and I wanted to be in a better position to help people. By studying with aifc, I felt I would be best equipped to help those around me.

Rhonda Newton

I was at aifc open day, and my heart started beating really fast. I felt the presence of the holy spirit all over me, and I felt God was saying to me, “this is for you. I want you to do this.” 

I like how at aifc there are like-minded people - all the students, and even the lecturers, their insights and having the biblical Christian foundation, that was what really drew me to it.
