Ordained Pastor Ministry
My name is JJ Kruger from Silverton in Gauteng province in South Africa. I currently work as a manager at a local shop. My walk of faith with our Lord Jesus Christ started after the first of two armed robberies that I fell victim to. During the robbery, I pleaded with God to deliver me from that ordeal and vowed to give my heart to Him. The Lord is true to His word and heard my cry in my darkest hour, and so it began. Shortly after I was baptized, the Lord carried me through the second armed robbery and called me to an ordained pastor ministry.
I have the support of my local church and of my pastor. My family also play a big part in my walk of faith. I feel very blessed to have come across Christian Leaders Institute’s website and to get the ministry training I need. I stand small before the Lord being called to minister to His children. My goal now is to be an ordained pastor and to go where the Lord leads me in my ordained pastor ministry. I can only do it with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and a scholarship from Christian Leaders Institute. In the ministry circles that I move in, ordination is a crucial element to being accepted by the leadership of my local and other congregations. Although I believe that since the Lord called me, He ordained me, the written proof is key for official purposes. So being trained in ministry at Chrisitan Leaders Institute and being ordained with Christian Leaders Alliance is of the utmost importance.
Since commencing my studies at CLI, all who know of my ordained pastor ministry dream have been observing the changes I am going through. It is to the point where I have been given the honour of leading a service and delivering God’s message to His people. The option has been put before me to join the local branch of Bibles for Believer’s team that delivers the good news to congregations and presents the opportunity to obtain funds for the international spreading of Bibles. However, almost since the beginning of my studies, the Lord has spoken to my heart and the message is clear He wants me to tend to His flock, and I most willingly, although in great shock at first, accept. The Lord has since revealed to me the area where I’m to start a house church and that the name of my ministry is to be ALITHEA MINISTRIES (meaning truth in Greek).
I’m at a loss for sufficient words to thank all at Christian Leaders Institute that have made it possible for me to start ministry training. I do not exaggerate that if it wasn’t for Professor Henry and the team that obey God’s calling to provide this opportunity, I would never have had an opportunity like this. Ordination by CLI will open all the ‘official’ channels needed for me to continue in the service of our Lord God Almighty here. Please pray for me for the spirit of discernment to be able to see and share the truth that God’s people need to hear. Also, pray that I’ll stand firm in my calling. All glory to God in the highest.
