Minister Ordination Journey -It is never too late to heed God’s calling.
The minister ordination journey of many is filled with challenges and victories along the way. Christian Leaders Institute offers free ministry training for your minister ordination journey into kingdom service. Here is a story of Tom who is receiving his ordination through the Christian Leaders Alliance.
Hello, my name is Tom and what a minister ordination journey I have come through to this point of my life. I was raised in a family that went to church every Sunday, Sunday night and Wednesday. My two older sisters and I were raised in the charismatic Pentecostal church with lots of enthusiasm and Holy Spirit filled services. Being a kid, it was kind of funny to me at the time but later I came to know the power and presence of the Holy Spirit personally. I thank God for my parents who have raised me in a Godly home with a commitment to loving and serving Jesus. I have three children and we live in the USA where doing ministry is an open opportunity.I knew God had called me to ministry as a young teenager, but this was a calling that I ignored most of my life even though I sensed that God wanted to use me for something important. I watched and read about great men of God and yearned to impact the kingdom of God. It wasn’t until two years ago when my son came back from a men’s retreat and I saw the passion and enthusiasm he exuded. Then the fire of the Holy Spirit was reignited in my soul for me to continue on my minister ordination journey.

Then the fire of the Holy Spirit was reignited in my soul for me to continue on my minister ordination journey.
I did not have the money or the time to attend seminary, so I began to search out an alternative way of becoming educated. I did a random search and there was Christian Leaders Institute calling my name. I never thought I could receive seminary style education online for free. My experience at CLI has been amazing! The teaching and content are great! They made learning very difficult subjects easy to understand and interesting. I can’t thank Henry Reyenga enough for his passion and fire to see education affordable to the people who may not have resources to do so. I know that through his vision and leadership, pastors, evangelists, and church planters will be affecting the kingdom and that many souls will be saved into heaven because of this great man of God.
This minister ordination journey has allowed me to step into the calling God has for me. It is important to prove and show myself educated to be a pastor or evangelist. I have a passion for the lost and believe my spiritual gift is evangelism. I would like to be a pastor or evangelist that reaches those that need to hear the word of God. I have seen the way that God has used Billy Graham and Reinhard Bonnke to influence millions of lives for Him! This is how I desire God to use my gifts for Him. I have a fire that has been burning inside of me ever since I started my minister ordination journey in training at CLI because I never thought it was possible to achieve a degree in ministry. I feel that attaining a degree in ministry will assist me and give me credibility to attain a position in a church body to fulfill the great commission of winning souls for the kingdom of God. This, I believe, is the most important time of my life. I must heed the voice of the Holy Spirit and be obedient. The time is now to take action and fulfill this calling in my life!
I have been praying that God opens the door for me to use the gifts he has blessed me with. The training I have received from CLI has been instrumental for me to take my calling to the next level. I have learned so much in my classes I have taken. The theology classes and church history were probably my favorite. The classes that Henry Reyenga taught on what it is like to be a leader or pastor were great. To be mentored by someone who has been a pastor will benefit me greatly. I would like to ask for prayer that God sends me an opportunity to win souls and spread the gospel to the lost and dying. I also ask for prayer to never lose confidence and become frustrated when things are not going the way I would like for them to go. I can’t begin to thank you for the opportunity you have given me to fulfill the great commission, with providing affordable ministry training for students. I know someday in heaven I will see you and thank you then. God bless and continue fighting the good fight!
