Dreams of Ministry First Step: Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant

I have always wanted to help the world in any way I could. I found myself doing all kinds of self-sacrificing things in an attempt to serve the greater good. All of this was in vain until I started serving the Lord’s greater good. I look forward to being able to officiate weddings in the Lord’s eyes as a licensed Christian wedding officiant. My marriage saved my life. It was the greatest gift God could give me during my time here on Earth, and I hope to bring that to others.

I have dreams of being a pastor and planting churches someday. Getting licensed as a Christian Wedding Officiant is my first step towards that dream. I had a lot of bumps in my road along the way. In and out of different care homes and temporary placements, battled addiction, I was sinful and refused to give myself to The Lord.


That was until I met SGT Roundtree. I lost my father to a battle with addiction. He had found Jesus as his Savior. The last four years of my father’s life were a gift to me from the Lord. I spent most of my life hating my father and all the demons he fought. However, in those last 4 years, he found the Lord, and God brought my father back to me for a short time. He was my new best friend, so when I lost him, I went off the rails. I drank non-stop and hated the world God had given me, never realizing that it was all part of his plan.

I enlisted to save myself, but ended up hurt and broken on the brink of medical separation dealing with problems from before I enlisted. SGT Roundtree was a great man who showed me all the things God had given me, and how all the strife was for a reason. It was the fire to forge me into a Man of God. Since that day, I haven’t looked back.

Called to Minister

I now teach Sunday School for High School students, mentor under my church’s Senior Pastor, help in youth ministries, participate in weekly Bible studies and host online studies in my free time. All of this is because of the amazing tuition-free courses here at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online Bible courses, Click Here). So this Licensed Christian Wedding Officiant class couldn’t be more important to me. This is my stepping stone to catapult me into life and service for the Lord! I couldn’t be happier.

This course offers real-world experience, with some expert teachers, and all the resources needed for the legalities of marriage. I started this course as a part of the necessary learning for the Ordained Deacon Minister program, and I fell in love. I can’t wait to see where this course will help me go next with the guidance of The Holy Spirit and the help of Jesus’ direction in The Word. With the learning I received from this course, I’m well on my way to more of God’s blessings. Thank you so much, Christian Leaders Institute and Christian Leaders Alliance.
