Called to Youth Ministry

Called to Youth Ministry

My name is Christa J. Smith. My husband Russell Smith is also in this deacon minister ordination program with me as we both feel called to youth ministry. We have four children. Currently, our youngest three, all boys, aged 16,16, and 17 are living at home with us. We live in Mustang, Oklahoma, in the United States of America.

I am taking this deacon minister ordination class at the Christian Leaders Institute to further my education in God’s Word (Learn more about free online Bible courses, Click Here).  I also am excited to be ordained as a Deacon Minister with the Christian Leaders Alliance. The Deacon Minister Ordination will help me grow in my relationship with God and further my credibility and standing. I want to further my ministry knowledge and to know more about scripture. I also want to learn to pray more confidently and comfortably.

The free ministry training at the Christian Leaders Institute has furthered my knowledge of the Bible and the ministry. I have also learned how to be a leader in different situations that arise. My husband and I both are called to youth ministry and hope to become youth pastors in our church.

The open door of ministry before me at this time is that I am already a youth sponsor. Also, I help with the teenagers’ group on Wednesdays. My husband is also a youth sponsor. We work along with someone else, who is the current youth leader.

Please pray that my husband and I will continue to grow and further our knowledge so that we can further our calling to be the youth pastors in our church.
