Education in Ministry

The Lord Uses Broken People

My name is Stephen Prindler. I’m 22 years old, and I’m from Ontario, Canada. Currently, I am studying at the Christian Leaders Institute to get an education in ministry (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).

My Journey

I grew up in a Christian household. So, Jesus has been real to me for as long as I can remember. I first began to prioritize my relationship with God when I was 13. That was the start of my journey as a bonafide Christian. In my teenage years (15-17), I was in an abusive relationship. So, I spent most of my days wishing I was dead. In fact, I attempted suicide three separate times. Each time, the Lord miraculously saved my life. Eventually, He saved me from that situation. Through a painful process, God brought me into a life filled with purpose and joy.

I’ve been in love with God ever since. I have sought His will for my life with all my heart. He kept me alive through all of my struggles and against my will for a reason. It is my privilege to know that He has a divine purpose for me. Last year, I felt the Lord call me to go into ministry to become a Christian leader. I didn’t feel ready, though, and hesitated to make any moves in that direction. I had to resolve some issues in my life before I could accept that it was really the Lord who was putting that desire in my heart.

Finding CLI

I discovered the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) when looking for an affordable way to receive an education in the ministry field. So, I decided that CLI was the place to begin. I don’t know exactly where I’m supposed to go from here. However, I trust that God will guide me just as He has done so far.

I pray that the Lord uses me to serve and glorify Him in ministry and in whatever I do for the rest of my life.
