Licensed and Ordained at CLA

Licensed and Ordained at CLA

Hello, beautiful souls! I am Laurie McFee from beautiful West Michigan and licensed and ordained at CLA. I have been in church ministry for most of my life as I learned the importance of serving Jesus in all things with a joyful heart. Also, I became a Christian at an early age. I grew up in a very loving Christian home, a Bible-believing church, and an incredible Christian education.

For many years, I was a Christian school educator. I’ve also served with many ministries and churches, doing everything from cleaning to teaching. Over eight years ago, I founded a Christian ministry organization called Beautiful Soul Ministries. Our motto is: Walking beside the beautiful, hurting soul.

Challenges and Finding CLI and CLA

The responsibilities in ministry are so full, wonderful, exciting, and exhausting at the same time. I have wanted to further my education in ministry leadership for several years. However, through circumstances of a diagnosis of three diseases and heartbreaking divorce, how was I ever going to able to go back to college with no money and physical limitations? God answered my prayers with the Christian Leaders Institute. What a JOY to find CLI!

With my health concerns and my work schedule in ministry, CLI has been an amazing free minster education gift. CLI allows me to take courses at my pace and at the right time for me. I can be in excruciating pain, wrapped up in a blanket and lying on the couch while furthering my education. CLI’s enlightening, inspiring, deep studies help me become stronger in my spiritual walk and enhance my leadership skills as God’s servant leader in ministry.

God has blessed my life in numerous ways, through tough times and peaceful times. I cherish my two grown children, their spouses, and the treasured blessing of eight grandchildren.

Licensed and Ordained at CLA

Now that I am officially a Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant and have just completed my Deacon Minister Ordination through CLI, I look forward to continuing to serve Jesus with the souls He places on my path in our ministry. The credibility of being licensed and ordained at CLA – the Christian Leaders Alliance – is essential to me with the wonderful education required to accomplish it.

My heart and mind are happily and willingly eager to continue my education with CLI in Women’s Minister Ordination, and as far as the good Lord wants me to go. I love serving Jesus!

Remember this, precious ones – your life has a great purpose; never give up no matter how tough and gut-wrenching life can be at times. You are a beautiful soul created unique and special in His image! God bless y’all!
