Church Planter Pastor
Blessings to all, my name is Mayra Lizarraga, and I feel called to be a church planter pastor. I am married to a wonderful man and provider, Rene Castellanos. Together we are the parents of two beautiful blessings, Chloe age eight and Rene age seven. I am an entrepreneur as I run a direct selling business and I’m the owner of a Makeup Artists Institute. These two businesses have helped me know people and showed me the leadership way and how important it is.
Since Jesus is our leader, He has inspired me to follow His steps. Not only has that inspired me to follow Jesus, but having a relationship with God has shown me how to pray, see the answers from God, and feel the Holy Spirit deep in me. I have been close to death many times, however, God has left me with the living for now. I know there are many reasons why God has allowed me to live that I get to understand little by little. I have been gifted from God in a so far unexplainable way, but I know I will discover it on my church planter pastor journey.
I can see myself as a pastor of a congregation that I will gather together as I plant a new church. I hope to finish the Divinity Degree that Christian Leaders Institute offers. I am so grateful for the ministry that Christian Leaders Institute is doing with people like me who would not have the means to otherwise study if not for the scholarship to make it free. I thank the Lord for bringing me through this journey thus far. All the glory is to the Lord and a thank you to Christian Leaders Institute for providing me with this opportunity!
