Chaplain Ministry Ordination
Chaplain Ministry Call
My name is Francois Erasmus, and I have a chaplain ministry call on my life. Currently, I live in South Africa. Jesus saved me, and I was born again in the year 2007. From there, I became involved in Christian ministry in various fields.
My Education and Pastoring
I started studying in 2008 towards a qualification in Ministry via Christian Life Training (Calvary Academics) and obtained my Diploma in Christian Ministry in January 2012. I received ordination as a local Inter-Denominational Pastor in the same year with the International Federation of Christian Churches. My first official title was Associate Pastor in a local church, Hineni Light House Ministries. I was there between 2012 to 2016. During 2017, I was utilized as a relief minster at the local AFM Church, before becoming the Senior Pastor of our current ministry – Rooted Church (Rooted In Christ), where I serve our congregation with the love of Christ.
Further Studies with CLI
I have a passion for God and have decided to further my studies by means of a Bachelor in Ministry program that I have already enrolled in with Calvary Academics, which should be completed by December of this year. Furthermore, I now enrolled with the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) to complete studies towards Chaplain Ministry services. I am a part-time Chaplain in the Military Veteran Association, and I wish to expand my knowledge in this field.
God has been at the center of my life since my personal encounter with Him. I have seen and experienced numerous miracles that He has done in people’s lives. It humbles me to be His Hands and Feet in order to expand His Kingdom here on earth.
The CLI training is fantastic as refresher training for me. It is also growing me in my knowledge of God and ministry. This growth will enrich me spiritually to be a better leader for our congregation and everyone I come in touch with.
Ordination with Christian Leaders Alliance and affiliation with CLI will greatly impact our church. CLI is a reputable organization to be associated with, and I thank you for what you are doing for Christian leaders around the world.
