My Testimony and Ministry Calling
Hello, my name is Kevin Johnson from Covington, Tennessee, which is about 30 miles north of Memphis. I have lived here all of my life. I have a wonderful fiancée and two beautiful daughters. Further, I am taking biblical ministry courses at the Christian Leaders Institute.
In my childhood, I attended church until I reached the age of 17. Then, I stopped going to church altogether. However, I knew even then that I had a calling on my life for Ministry.
Jesus Saved my Life
Completely away from the church, I did not want anything to do with it or to hear anything about it. For over 20 years, I drank alcohol and did drugs. Further, I was in and out of jail and ended up homeless on the streets of Memphis, Tennessee. In 2012, I went to a church that was giving food out. A man asked me if I wanted Jesus to save me, and I said yes! That day, I asked Jesus into my heart. It changed my life forever! Jesus delivered me from alcohol, drugs, and homelessness. However, I still face obstacles growing in maturity, such as thinking I am not good enough because of my past.
Biblical Ministry Courses at CLI
I am currently in Kairos Prison Ministry. Furthermore, I am set to lead a 4-day weekend for the fall of 2024. I have preached twice in front of my church congregation. My spiritual dream is to reach people that are going through the struggles that I faced in my life.
I came across the Christian Leaders Institute looking for Biblical ministry courses that will help me in these two areas of ministry. With my work schedule, it was difficult finding something that could help me and was not expensive. Therefore, CLI is a blessing and an answered prayer. I look forward to the classes and courses Christian Leaders Institute is offering.
Thank you! God Bless You, CLI!
