Bible Study and Ministry training

My Journey to the Lord

Hello, my name is Kirby Beppler. The online Bible Study and ministry training at the Christian Leaders Institute equips me for my calling (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here). This is my journey to the Lord our God.

My Journey Began

Born in southern Illinois, I grew up in my grandfather’s church. He was a preacher for many years.  I loved learning about the Bible. In 1980, that all changed when my grandfather went to be with our Lord. After that day, I never returned to the church. I wondered why the Lord had taken such a great person. Many years later, I went back to church. However, it just wasn’t the same. I was so used to my grandfather teaching us about the Bible. The churches I went to weren’t teaching us like that. Instead, it was about, (sad to say) money and how much they could get from us. So, I decided not to go back. I never lost my faith, but never returned to the church.

My Journey Back to Church

Until a couple of years ago, I never set foot in another church. Then, one day, my wife went to one she said was different than any other. They had their service on TV. So, one day, she asked me to watch it and let her know what I thought. So, I gave it a chance and watched it. I enjoyed the music and the sermon.

I watched it for a few weeks before I decided to attend. When I got there, the pastor came to me and introduced himself to me. After a few weeks, he gave me his phone number and told me to call him whenever I had questions about the Bible. I took him up on his offer, and he mentored me. We talk about the Bible often. My pastor is the reason I’m where I’m at with the Lord.

Journey to Bible Study and Ministry Training at CLI

We now have a Facebook page called “The Gospel Highway.” We post different things about the Bible and do a Bible study every other weekend. There is also a Christian movie night once a month. Further, we started a Christian band to play before each Bible study. Soon we will also be starting a podcast dedicated to the Bible.

The online Bible Study training at the Christian Leaders Institute prepares me for this ministry. I hope to preach to more people in our group and maybe get more people to come to our Bible Study.

coaching minister certification

Hello, I’m Melissa Prusinski from Caro, Michigan in the USA. I am getting my coaching minister training and certification at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here).

My Story

Married for 16 years to Blake, we have two daughters, ages 9 and 13, that we homeschool. I grew up in a non-Christian household. My husband introduced me to the Lord before we married, and I accepted Jesus at 21. I have faithfully walked with Jesus for 17 years.

In 2018, our family started building a Rustic Horse Farm on 40 acres. At the same time, we started building the farm, our life significantly changed when I became gravely ill. It took over a year to get a diagnosis. I had Late Stage Neurological Lyme Disease. It was a brutal 4-year battle. I’m very thankful to the Lord for the healing I’ve received.

Horse Ministry

During my healing, the Lord began working on my heart. People shouldn’t ever have to suffer and heal alone. My horses brought comfort in my battle, and that’s when the idea for a Horse Ministry was born! A place people can come from where they receive support from other people and, most importantly, hear the Holy Spirit through exercises with the horse. We live in a world with lots of trauma, whether through a severe illness, the loss of a loved one, abuse, etc. My husband and I hope to create a safe place for God to work healing from trauma in those He sends our way.

I needed training, so I reached out to Elaine Davis of Unbridled. My husband and I got certified in trauma recovery. There, I received training to be a facilitator allowing the Holy Spirit to set captives free with the help of the horse.

Coaching Minister Certification at CLI

After I got home from the certification, I felt a prompting from the Lord. I need more ministry training if we start a ministry on our farm. I need more biblical knowledge. That is how God led me to the Christian Leaders Institute. I want the Coaching Minister Certification to prepare me for our ministry. I also enrolled in a support group on the Immanuel Prayer Approach to help me heal my childhood traumas and hopefully teach others in our ministry the same approach. I’m a definite example of how God can allow trials to grow us and draw a person into ministry. I have a huge heart for the chronically ill community and trauma survivors. I’m excited about what God has in store for our farm ministry!

Biblical material and knowledge

My name is Adrian Roberts. I am from South Africa. The tuition-free Biblical material and knowledge at the Christian Leaders Institute are a blessing (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here).

My Story

Born in a Christian home, I spent part of my childhood on a farm and another part of it in the city. My father was a military man, and so was his father. Needless to say, we were well-disciplined from a young age. He wanted me to follow in his footsteps. However, I chose a different path. I studied Technology instead and became an IT specialist. I worked for myself, running my own company for most of my life.

In 2012, my life took a turn for the worst. The authorities sentenced me to serve time in a correctional facility. My family and friends abandoned me. I had no one to turn to. My days grew darker and lonelier. Trapped in anger and resentment, I hated myself and felt anger at the world. My freedom was gone. I wasn’t in control of my life anymore. I lost the will to live because all hope was lost. So, I made one last attempt and prayed earnestly to God for help. The answer I got was “not yet.” I tried to hang on to my little faith, hoping God would come through for me.

God Sent a Minister

A year later, a stranger came to visit. He had a message from God for me. He had a lot of comforting words for me that day. But, the words that stuck with me were “God has a plan for you, and you must see it through.” The stranger introduced himself as a pastor from a small congregation with a mission. He ministered to me, and God showed me how much of an impact I can make right where I am. There was a prison of lost souls that needed guidance and assurance of God’s love and presence. I answered the call and studied the scriptures to the best I could with the available resources. I wanted to know more about Him and the new and exciting journey before me. My faith in God grew stronger with time, and it’s still growing. My relationship with Him is too.

When God said to spread His Word to the ends of the earth, he included those in prison. Jesus said, “I came for the lost,” and we don’t have many ministers reaching out to prisoners. It is one area God is using me to spread His love and bring back the lost sheep.

Biblical Material and Knowledge at CLI

Studying at the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) is a beautiful experience. They equip me with the Biblical material and knowledge I need to do God’s will. It also makes it easier to help others who want to study ministry and make a difference. Thank you to the CLI vision partners and supporters who make this possible.
