Ordained Deacon Commissioned Minister

Hi! My name is Michael Carr. I am an ordained deacon commissioned minister with Christian Leaders Alliance. I am a bred Coloradoan transplanted to the beautiful state of West Virginia. My wonderful wife Jackie and I have three grown children and three beautiful grandchildren.

I am the youngest of three children. I grew up with a loving mother and a very strict father. My only respite as a young boy was the church where I started at a young age attending Sunday School with my grandmother. I received the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior on June 12, 1967, at Vacation Bible School.

Ministry Calling and Ministry Training

I felt the pull to the ministry since I was a young teen. However, I was afraid to pursue it. Instead, I lived my life according to what the world expected of me. Nonetheless, I have looked into ministry schools off and on for years. I believe I was at my lowest in 2011, when, I suffered my second heart attack, was diagnosed with Acid Reflux, and then with Parkinson’s Disease. I feel the Christian Leaders Institute will help me to achieve my goal of becoming an Ordained Commissioned Minister in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, just two years later, I have finished enough courses to achieve a Commissioned Pastor Certificate. With the power of the Holy Spirit, I can now apply for a position as a Pastor in whatever church the Lord Jesus sees fit to put me in. Yes, I am 64, and I have no experience. That didn’t stop Paul, and it won’t stop me. I am very grateful for the opportunity that CLI has afforded me to gain biblical knowledge, and, therefore, the wisdom to spread the Gospel. And even more, I am a better Christian due to the training and insight from CLI. My future dream is to follow the Holy Spirit and to continue to take more courses at CLI!
