Evangelist Pastor Training
My name is Kristina Mariner and I am receiving evangelist pastor training. I am a Maine native in the USA. I notice a lot of people are ‘Sunday worshippers’ and do what they want the rest of the time. I feel a strong calling to minister/teach and encourage others how to be Christ-like and obedient. I studied for many years, earning about 460 college credits. I am a mother of 3 children, sons ages 14 and 6, and a 7-year-old daughter.
I currently work for myself in Holistic Wellness and work part-time in nursing and for a funeral home as a Funeral Attendant. I hope to perform services at some point, as well as minister for my church, or plant a church of my own.
I came to know God as a child. I was raised in a Catholic household. My faith has been tested and life has had a lot of setbacks and hurdles for me to face. I believe each occurred and several repeated to teach me lessons and to build my endurance and my faith to perform my mission in this life and to the next in His Kingdom.
I was called into ministry this past summer, 2017. I heard the Lord’s voice speak to me for the first time in my life. In being so busy and taking so much on myself, I lost sight of my true purpose and blocked out what the Lord has been trying to show me. I was not only created to help heal the sick through my choice in a profession but also to bring people to Christ through the Lord’s guidance.
I identify more as a pastor, but I can also see myself in evangelism. I want to reach as many people as I can and bring God’s word to others, to encourage their walk of faith with the Lord.
This first class at Christian Leaders Institute renewed my connection with God and confirmed my calling to continue with Christian Leaders Institute to gain the knowledge to minister. I want to train so I can reference scripture confidently, connect with others, and become more comfortable in ministry with an education specific to the Word.
I believe a scholarship to Christian Leaders Institute will allow me to gain the knowledge that will be required for me to minister without needing to rely on a ‘paid position’ to pay off student debt, compounding the student debt I am still paying off. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to my continued journey with Christ.
