Biblical courses online

Hello everyone! I am David Sanchez from Illinois in the USA. I grew up on the northwest side of Chicago. Currently, I am studying free biblical courses online at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).

My Early Years

The love of God was introduced to me when I was a child. My grandfather was a pastor. My uncle was a missionary. And, as my father was a preacher, the teaching of the Word always surrounded me. I had wanted to do something in the church. However, I faded out and backslid because I had no solid foundation. The urban area I lived in had a vast amount of negative influence. But, my love for God was always in my heart.

In my late 20s, I rejoined my pastor in his church and worked with the youth ministry. Once again, I fell short of the goal of what God wanted from me and backslid again. This time it was due to my misdirected focus on a woman in the church I dated. But when that broke up, I shut down. I blamed God for my unhappiness and was angry for the wrong reasons.

New Direction

A little over 12 years later, I had a vision and a strong presence come upon me. I saw myself sharing my testimony, and the subject was “Knowing Yourself to Know God.” Outlines and ideas were revealed to me. Since then, I’ve dusted off the Bible and bought some resources and reference books. I also got a Bible study to refresh my basic knowledge of the Word and to remind myself of who I am to the Lord.

Finding CLI

Ever since that vision came upon me, I have been thirsty to know God. So, I have been searching online for some type of biblical courses online. That is when I came across the Christian Leaders Institute. I prayed and thought about it and had confirmation to start my studies at CLI on a Sunday afternoon. With prayer, dedication, and the help of the Holy Spirit, CLI will provide me with the tools to achieve the goal to be where God wants me to be.

I am a family man with two children of a young age. I also work a demanding job. However, I know by asking God to be by my side in this journey, I can do anything according to His will (1 John 5:14). So thank you for reading a small piece of who I am. I know that my story is still being written so that I can do the works of the Lord and be the way He wants me to be.
