called to pastoral ministry

Hello, my name is Haven Rockthunder. I have a ministry dream to reach out to others and lead them to the Lord. That is why I am studying at the Christian Leaders Institute because God calls me to pastoral or chaplaincy ministry.

My Story

I grew up and live in Saskatchewan, Canada. I have no husband or children yet. However, I have a cat I love. I’m First Nation; the people who were here before the settlers came to Canada.

My life was never perfect. I came from a broken family. I went through trauma as a child and had my heart hurt, broken, and torn apart. Often, I struggled with feeling I belonged and was loved and accepted. I did things to help with “protecting” myself. As a teenager, I went to other things as a way to feel wanted, loved, and accepted. I struggled with my self-esteem and was very shy. Further, I fought anxiety throughout my life. But the Lord took me out of my bad situation. He was there for me when I was a child and still is here for me.

Called to Pastoral or Chaplaincy Ministry

God called me to pastoral or chaplaincy ministry. I want to lead people to Christ and make a place that’s safe for all to come. People need to know the truth and the good news before it’s too late. I want people to know that there is hope, someone who loves them, and a way out of bad situations if you know Jesus Christ. Because the Lord hears my cries, He hears yours. He will help you!

Thanks, CLI, for making my ministry dream possible!
