Officiate a Wedding
My name is Stephen Kennedy. My wife and I have an amazing family with three daughters. Recently, my nephew asked me to officiate at his wedding. After being “ordained” through an “ordination mill” site, it felt fake to me. Further, what gave them the right, and how did they know I was qualified or had Christian faith? They did not know me. So, I searched google for something real and found the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about free Bible and ministry classes online, Click Here) and the Christian Leaders Alliance.
The training felt real, hard enough to weed out those not called but not someone led here by God. Receiving the license to be a Christian Wedding Officiant with the Christian Leaders Alliance was precisely what I needed.
Following Where God Leads
My journey to becoming a minister has been something that I ran from. In life, you can’t run from your calling. Sometimes, it takes an act of faith or a sign from God to push you to pursue you’re calling and purpose.
Always a part of my church growing up, I often traveled with our youth pastor. I also gave my testimony and spoke to the youth about my journey with God and how He gave me the strength to endure any challenge. So, I always thought I would be more involved in the church and be a youth minister.
I’m not sure how far my journey in continued education will take me or the path God has placed me on now. I’m honored to be asked to officiate a wedding and be a part of my nephew’s special day. Perhaps, I might take on the role permanently and look to do more weddings. Thank you, CLI and CLA!
