Beginning Anew

Beginning Anew

My name is Brenda Baker. Columbia, South Carolina has been my family’s home since 1971. Born in Florida 65 years ago, I am the oldest of six children. I am up to the challenge with beginning anew today.

I retired from my career as a food service manager in the healthcare industry. However, I work part-time as a front desk receptionist at a small nursing facility in Columbia. I also enjoy the privilege that God had given me to meet and greet everyone as I enjoy talking to people. Some of the people I come into contact with in my work day need to converse or to have a reassurance that things they are dealing with will work out.

The Spirit of Christ lives in me and allows me to minister to souls that are in need of a word. I received my calling into the service of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Operating in my calling is the strength that carries me daily.

I am very involved in my local church. My church is of medium size. We have approximately 160 members. In the children’s ministry, as a member of the evangelism team and the women’s prayer group are some of the ways I serve. I am also on the Pastor’s Advisory Committee. I serve under a very knowledgeable and dedicated leader, which is a great blessing.

The scholar program here at Christian Leaders Institute is one of the best things to come along for me. After losing my husband of 43 years in June of 2018, I assumed my life was over. With this opportunity with Christian Leaders Institute, I have the opportunity of beginning anew. I received another gift from the Lord in CLI. I can now serve with all of my heart and truly study to show myself approved.
