Hello, I am Veronica. I reside in Michigan in the United States. I have always attended church and been involved in some way with church activities for the majority of my life.
My maternal great-grandmother pastored her own church where I attended until her death when I was 11 years old. After this I began to attend different churches, my attendance waned and I quit attending altogether; sometimes for years at a time. During these periods, I often felt that something was missing. So, I would begin seeking out a church home once again.
Eventually, in December of 2007 while assisting with a wedding at a church where the pastor and first lady encouraged me to visit to see what their church was about. I fell in love with learning about who Jesus really was, how big his love was for me, and how he’d gone to the cross of crucifixion willingly for ME! Since these realizations, I’ve never been the same.
I believe that the ministry training that I receive through Christian Leadership Institute will equip me to be an effective winner of souls. My call is to minister to young men and women and redirect them to Jesus. I created a summer youth program that encompassed sports with biblical teachings and principals. The young people came away with a renewed interest in how God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit play active roles in their daily lives when invited in. Training with CLI will allow me to serve my community in an impactful way that could span several generations.
The getting started classes have further encouraged my commitment to see my calling to fruition. I have been exposed to foundational information and tools that will provide a sound standing in whatever path God directs me to. I believe that as a devoted worker for the Lord I will be in my proper place in the body of Christ. My soul rejoices when I share with others the goodness, grace, and mercy of the Savior.
As I think back over the many instances that God has revealed his saving grace in the lives of my family and friends, I know that I whole heartedly desire to be useful in winning souls for Jesus. After spending time creating and leading a summer youth program and subsequently constantly being led in the direction of ministry, I am ready to answer the call.
Getting a scholarship to attend Christian Leadership Institute will allow me to pursue a solid ministry education needed to affect long term change in my community, my family and my church. I am in an urban community where the need for developing a personal relationship with God often takes a back seat to lack of a job, homelessness, hunger, etc. I want the hopeless to know that there is hope. I want to encourage others to seek refuge and healing from a loving and faithful God. I know CLI will help me accomplish my dreams of receiving community youth leader training.
