In three short years, the 12 disciples who followed Jesus went from obscurity to the global stage. They were completely transformed by knowing Christ, and they embraced a new life calling to make Him known in all the world.
Today, a handful of Native American believers follow a similar path. The inaugural term is now underway at the On Eagles’ Wings Leadership Center in Arkansas.
“We believe God handpicked this first class,” Brad Hutchcraft says. Hutchcraft oversees On Eagles’ Wings, a division of Ron Hutchcraft Ministries.
“These young leaders are rising above and saying, ‘We want more for our people.’ They want to be messengers of hope and to know how to stand for Jesus.”
Transforming the future
Six Native young people began the nine-month term in October. A class of six students may sound underwhelming, but “even one standing firm for Jesus can make a huge difference in Native America and beyond,” Hutchcraft says.
The term began by addressing identity. “The core goal of our year is to help [students establish] their identity in whom God created them to be and what that looks like, not whatever they were told before now,” Hutchcraft says.
