Free Bible Education
My name is Leigh Ann Ogerly and I am receiving free Bible education at Christian Leaders Institute. I am from a small town in West Texas, USA. My mother was raised in a Church of Christ and my father was raised in a Lutheran Church. My ancestors on my father’s side are all German and they only attended a Lutheran church. Some of them even helped build one in East Texas that is still standing and has attendance every Sunday. I basically attended both churches. My parents wanted to me to know the Lord, so we attended every Sunday to either one or the other. As I got older they let me go to church with friends (this is also a way of helping your friends get into a church..by going with them). I was baptized in my teens at a Baptist Church, however my father was not too happy about it because all of my older siblings were baptized in the Lutheran Church. I did accept Jesus Christ and knew what it meant to get baptized. However, I must admit that was not the only reason. There was a production called Heavens Gates and Hells Flames. Now that scared me. I did not want to go to hell. I had plenty of discussions with the youth minister about it.
Is my calling to minister? I am not sure of that yet. I think if I were to be called to minister, it would be to the youth if that is where God wants me to go. Right now, I am setting a better foundation with Christ. I want to know Him more, be more knowledgeable. If this leads me to ministry and God wants me in ministry, then ministry it will be. I need to learn the basics and be educated on His word, His work and what He is telling me to do. I am thankful for this opportunity at Christian Leaders Instituteto learn more about Him and where He desires me to serve Him.
