Equipping for ministry

I am Joel Eric Beauchamp from Georgia in the United States of America. I am the Pastor of the International Christian Fellowship Church in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Further, I am a student at the Christian Leaders Institute. Therefore, CLI is equipping me for ministry.

My Story

I grew up in the United Methodist Church. At 12, I went through confirmation. God saved me, and I received baptism. However, in High School, I began making poor decisions. I slowly drifted from the church and God. At 35, I was lost, depressed, broken, homeless, and addicted to drugs. On March 3, 2008, I checked into a 12-month Regeneration program called Waypoint Center.

My life changed! I developed a personal relationship with Jesus, and He changed my life. It was not easy, but Jesus walked with me through a journey of repentance and restoration. Mentored and discipled into surrendering to Jesus as my Savior and accepting Him as the Lord of my life, I dedicated my life to Him and His service.

Wherever The Lord Leads

The Lord slowly began restoring to me the “years the locust ate.” Shortly after graduating from Waypoint, I met my wife, Tara. We have been serving the Lord faithfully ever since. My family and I follow the Lord wherever He leads. We spent seven years as missionaries in Kenya. There we served in prison ministry and church planting to an unreached people group. We also assisted in structuring a Christian drug rehab center in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Currently, I pastor an English-speaking church in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The church in Honduras focuses on ministering to ex-pats and missionaries. It is an honor and blessing to serve such an extraordinary God!

Equipping for Ministry at Christian Leaders

God led me to Christian Leaders for the equipping, credentialing, and mentoring for ministry needed to further His Kingdom!
