Chaplaincy Ordination Dream

My name is Tanner Brigh and I have a chaplaincy ordination dream. I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico in the USA. I am ordained legally, however, did not have the education behind me, which is why I wanted to go through this training and be ordained again after I am educationally trained. Christian Leaders Institute has reignited a passion within me that has been there for 20 years. It is to bring the word of God’s love to those who are sick or dying (whether that be in a hospice, home, prison, jail, remote destination, or homeless and either in a shelter or on the street). I also want to give hope to their families that they will see their loved ones again and how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ who makes it possible.

Recently, I was asked (by my friend) to pray with her for her salvation before her passing. I also told her that she would be reunited with her family in heaven. It was an emotional event that was so touching and the hospice that came to my friend’s home has asked me to send them my information and look into volunteering until my ordination is official and I have my Associate’s degree. My ministry work is so rewarding and invaluable. I will continue to train and study for my degrees and this ordination will serve a purpose for now. But eventually, I am going for my Bachelor’s degree in Divinity with an emphasis in Chaplaincy.

I believe having a scholarship at Christian Leaders Institute will help me achieve my goals because I would finally be able to get my degree. It is a paralyzing feeling to want something but not have the funds to do it. I cannot afford a traditional school and many of the online programs that I could afford are not accredited. Even with a Pell Grant, the tuition is too high. I simply don’t have the funds needed. Education is the one thing holding me back from becoming a pastor who tells people about our Savior’s love for them. I believe this is the first step to helping those in need in my chaplaincy ordination dream. Unfortunately, in today’s economy, it doesn’t matter how genuine a person you are, companies want licensed or certified employees who have gotten an accredited education. I pray that this Institute will allow me the chance to achieve my lifelong dream.

My husband is extremely supportive of me. But, unfortunately, his family’s religion doesn’t believe women can do anything in a church other than tending to the nursery children. Tending to children is honorable, but I feel I am here for another purpose altogether. I pray that my strong but compassionate actions to serve God’s people will show them otherwise. Please pray for this for me and with me.
