Ministry Ordination Journey
I am on a ministry ordination journey. I began my walk with Jesus Christ several years ago after a difficult divorce. However, I didn’t grow as I should have. My faith has grown significantly over the past three years as I have witnessed God at work in many peoples lives. Although baptized as an infant many years ago, I felt I needed to be baptized again now that I understood the meaning associated with it. Since then, I have become more involved in my local church. I’ve spoken at services, led ministry, and began discipleship with many. I have been tasked with starting and building a Men’s Ministry for my church. A task that has failed in several previous attempts. I have also been approached and have been interested in Christian Counseling and Life Coaching.
As my faith and ministry involvement is growing, my knowledge is growing as well. However, I feel the need for more formal education on my ministry ordination journey. The ministry training at Christian Leaders Institute has enabled me to grow and educate myself on my own time. While completing the Deacon Minister Ordination Class at CLI, it just so happens that several members of my home church had recommended me to the Elders and nominated me for the position of Deacon. I had not discussed my CLI schooling with anyone from my church at that time. This, to me, was another sign of my calling. I accepted the nomination and was voted in. My term as a Deacon in the Fairborn First Church of Christ begins January 2018. I am honored and humbled by this opportunity to serve.
I will continue to learn and grow, with the help of CLI, with one goal being to obtain my Divinity Degree. Throughout the course of this, I am confident that CLI will help me to build a successful Men’s Ministry, to help and counsel those in need, and to build disciples out of many.
