Cynaria Reynolds shares her testimony with us about her Christian education pursuit at Christian Leaders Institute.
Christian Education Pursuit of Wisdom and Understanding
Hello, my name is Cynaria Reynolds, and I am on a Christian education pursuit with Christian Leaders Institute. I reside in the United States. Ever since I was about seven years old, I knew that God had a calling on my life, but I didn’t know to what extent He was going to use me. As a little girl, I soon realized that God had blessed me with the gift of singing. I enjoyed it so much I joined the music ministry at my church. I would also soon become one of the choir leaders. As I sing, I remember all of the smiles on the faces of the people in the audience. It was as if my voice encouraged them to hold on a little while longer. That made me feel that God was proud of me using the gift that He had given me.
While going off to college to pursue my degree in Business Marketing, I was blessed to be able to continue to use my gift of singing and to receive a music scholarship along with it. Since college, I have really grown to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I have begun to grow and understand His great love for me. I am now the worship leader at the ministry I attend. Being the worship leader has allowed me to see how important it is for me to take the love that God has shown me and use it to pour back into His people to draw them even closer to Him.
As the worship leader, I come across so many people who are broken inside. They want to know more about God’s love for them so that they too can grow even stronger. I also come across people who don’t know God but want to know Him. To be able to minister His word through song and share with those people how important it is to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is a great blessing. My desire is that they will be able to get into a place of worship with Him, so that He may begin to show Himself in their lives.
Since I have taken CLI’s introductory class, it has allowed me to identify even greater with who I am in Christ and the order and structure that leaders need for the ministry to run smoothly. In the Christian Ministry that I attend, my pastor has always encouraged me to go further in the ministry through a Christian education pursuit and ministry training. My pastor also encourages me by providing me with additional material that will help me in my studies. The scholarship to Christian Leaders Institute is important to me because I am doing something that I am passionate about, and that is learning the word of God and how to minister. It will help me pursue my goal of receiving ministry certification or a degree while not having to worry financially about how I will pay for it. Proverbs 23:23 says “Buy the Truth and sell it not, get wisdom, instruction, and understanding.” This scholarship will help me to receive even more wisdom, instruction, and understanding that comes along with this opportunity to study here at CLI.
