Becoming a Leader in God’s Kingdom
My name is Doris Williams, and I am from the United States. Called to be a Christian matchmaker and coach, I am a student at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here).
My Spiritual Journey
I grew up in a Christian household in Illinois. My maternal grandfather was a preacher. When I visited him during the summer, we prayed daily, sang hymns, and read scriptures. These times shaped my life. I learned from an early age the importance of God. Attending church became a regular part of my life as I grew up. I also admit, as a youth, that this was not always my choice. I remember thinking that once I went away to college, I would be done with attending church.
However, it was in college that I gave my life to the Lord. During my time in college, it was the first time I attended church myself. I went to Bible study and spent time with others who believed the gospel. This was when God became real to me. I had my experiences with faith and prayer. Being in college, I faced many obstacles while navigating college life. I had to prioritize God over friends. It was complex as a young adult. But, with the support of my church family, I avoided some of the pitfalls of college life.
I graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in Deaf Education. Later, when I returned to school, I received a Master’s degree in School Leadership. Currently, I work in a school where I manage the special education department.
Study at CLI
Recently, I began classes at the Christian Leaders Institute. I wanted training, so I could effectively minister. It is my goal to be a Christian matchmaker and coach. I have a passion for those looking for mates. Dating is complicated, and Christians often make poor choices due to their desire to marry. I want to use what I have learned to help guide youth and young adults to date in a Godly way. I am so grateful for the training that I receive. Further, I am confident I can use what I learn to benefit the kingdom of God.
