Ordained Minister Credentials

Ordained Minister Credentials

In Season and Out of Season (2 Timothy 4:2)

When I converted to Christianity more than three decades ago, God instilled the zeal to serve Him in my heart. I derive immense joy and fulfillment from the divine mandates placed upon me. Called by God to minister, I am studying at the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI), an online Bible Seminary. The Bible courses and ordained minister credentials through CLI prepare me for ministering.

My Story

I am Avelino Magtibay, a husband and father. Originally from the Philippines, I was born into a modest family, the eldest of eight siblings. At a young age, the burden of helping my family was on my shoulders and my other siblings. My parents are typical Filippino Catholic Christians, but they uphold us with love and respect for each other.

In 1986, I accepted Christ as my Savior and Lord during a Christian revival crusade in our town. Since then, God placed me in various Christian fellowships. That helped me to develop a deep desire to serve our Lord further. When God granted me the opportunity to relocate to Italy permanently, He led me to a Christian movement that focuses on discipling the family. As an overseas Filipino worker, I aim to help fellow Filipinos working abroad.

When the covid pandemic hit, the ministry transformed into an online church. I witnessed God miraculously move. After the pandemic, the online church transformed back into a physical house church, a significant movement of the Holy Spirit.

Ordained Minister Training and Credentials at CLI

I felt not well-equipped to do my ministry. Something was missing, and something needed to be done properly. Therefore, I prayed and fasted. Subsequently, I decided to relinquish my leadership position as the servant leader of that House Church. I was to pursue studies, undergo training, and possess appropriate ordained minister credentials.

Due to my need and genuine desire for reputable training, I conducted a thorough search on the internet. I searched for an online Bible seminary that could support their online students and grant appropriate ordained minister credentials. God sent me to the Christian Leader Institute, a great Bible school. CLI taught me to lead and nourish my ministry based on biblical principles and knowledge.

I took all the lessons and exams to be more equipped. The courses opened my heart, mind, and eyes to the actual biblical foundation of serving God. Now that I am completing the ordained minister training, I am confident that I have the ordained minister credentials to do my ministry for the glory of God. Therefore, I am equipped “in and out of season” through Christian Leaders Institute and Alliance. All glory and honor belong to God forever and ever!
