Be an Effective Follower of Christ
Hello. My name is Alvin Wayne Coulter Sr. Currently living in Dallas, Texas, USA. I am 45 years old. First and foremost, I want to thank God for this opportunity to be a part of Christian Leaders Ministries. It is truly a blessing for me to have found a safe place to learn to be a better servant of the Lord. Christian Leaders Institute has given me a way to get the Bible training needed (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here). Then I can fulfill my call to ministry more effectively without the enormous finical burden of student debt.
Growing up in a small country town in Arkansas, God was always present. My father was a Pastor, and my mother was also in ministry. So, I have always known God. Even as a young boy, I had a tug in my heart to know God. I saw many things right before my eyes that were God’s hand at work. Since I knew God from an early age, it was easy for me to see God. God worked miracles in my family’s life and in my life. For example, God healed and delivered me from a fatal illness at birth. At the same time, God healed my mother from a different sickness. That was the first of many times God showed Himself strong and mighty.
I came to know the Lord at the age of six. I found Him as my Savior at the age of nine. As a young child choosing to walk as a child of God was not easy. It came with many challenges and obstacles. I endured some bad situations growing up, such as bullying and name-calling. Throughout my years of schooling, I realized that I needed help. I could always get help from my parents and family, but I needed a different kind of help. I needed God, and I needed Him more in my life. God gave the type of help that would always be with me no matter what came my way.
Finding CLI/CLI for Bible Training Needed
Later in life, I hit a wall when nothing seemed to work anymore. It seemed as if everything went downhill. My way of life began to decline. Then I found myself in a lifestyle that did not please God. I didn’t know what was happening at the time. As the years went by, I fell deeper and deeper into this dark side of life. It took losing nearly everything for things to change. I heard God’s voice call to me, and it looked like a hand reaching down and pulling me up. Then God said, “I called your name. Why did you run?” I responded, “I don’t understand.” God said, “Everything was going well for you and I called your name. You got scared and ran. I had to wait until you got to this place in life to come and call your name again.”
I lost 13 years in running from my calling. But, now it is my dream to see it to the end. God has placed so much in my hands to do. With the help of the free Bible training needed at the Christian Leaders Institute, I can be better prepared for my calling. I plan to complete an Associate’s and/or Bachelor’s Degree at CLI’s Leadership Excellence School. Therefore, God’s Will be done according to the vision that He has given me.
