My name is Kerrisha Nelson, from the Caribbean country of Grenada. Currently, I am studying at the Christian Leaders Institute, an online Grenada tuition-free Bible School (Learn more about online Bible courses, Click Here). I am a graduate of St. George’s University in True Blue, St. George’s, Grenada. There I earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. Also, I earned an Associate Degree in Information Technology at the T.A. Marryshow Community College in Grenada.
I am passionate about the use of technology in education. My testimony is of earning a TESOL/TEFL certification online via the World TESOL Academy in London. I am a lifelong learner, so I have no problem utilizing technology to meet my learning needs. Therefore, earning my Bachelor of Divinity online at Christian Leaders College is accomplishable for me.
Jesus as My Lord and Savior
I was a Roman Catholic until about eleven years ago. Then, one day at Wesley College, they held an evangelical service. At the time, I was not aware they referred to the service like this. During the altar call, I responded to the call! I repented of my sins and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in my heart.
After the service, one of the women advised those who had received Jesus as their Lord and Savior to attend a good Bible-teaching church. Immediately, I thought of a church in my neighborhood. Yet, I did not go to the church. I did not commit to living as a Christian from that point on. For some reason, in my mind, I thought that when I was in my thirties is when I will serve Jesus fully. However, God had a different plan for me.
Surrendering My Life to Christ
While walking along my neighborhood to return to my home, a friend called me. She related a message to me from another friend who lives abroad. By spending some time with her and her cousin, she invited me to accompany them to a crusade. Naturally, I accepted the invitation, so I attended. On that night, the church we went to was the same church that came into my mind to attend when I first accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
After that occasion, I started regularly attending church services with my friend. One night at one of the services, she has asked me if I am saved. I answered, “Well, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, but I am not baptized.” So, she told me about the baptism class her two cousins were currently a part of. After that, I wanted to be water baptized. From there, my journey began to go deeper in the Lord.
Obstacles Growing into Maturity
I admit that life as a daughter of God is not easy. However, a notable spiritual accomplishment is that I understand what worship means and my place in Christ. Reading Christian books, such as The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, my understanding of worship has unfolded. Worship to God is through the life I live. The very fact that I am obedient in doing these tasks unto God is, in fact, worship to my Lord!
Another groundbreaking obstacle is that I was shy. I actually accommodated the mentality that it is a good thing. I embraced slogans as a youth, such as Cute & Shy. But that was a lie from the devil to keep me from doing the will of God. One day, I heard from the Lord to do a prayer and fasting time against the spirit of fear. So I followed the instructions and received that breakthrough! I also tested it. For one thing, I cared about feedback from others when I wanted to object to situations. Then, I saw outspokenness in me, which started without worrying about the person’s view of me. This was groundbreaking. Of course, I seek to share my views in humility, and I understand people will speak negatively or positively despite my stance.
As for knowing who I am in Christ, now I know who I am as the song, I know Who I am, by Sinach says. I thank the Holy Spirit for leading me to do the prayer and fasting against the spirit of fear. What a breakthrough! I know who I am! I am bold in the Lord. God’s children are bold!
My spiritual dream is that I hear from the Holy Spirit to depend on Him to guide me and make decisions based on the will of the Father. God became real to me when I was baptized into the Holy Spirit. I asked Him to help me to abide in Him. I know He does that daily.
Finding Christian Leaders Institute: Grenada Tuition Free Bible School
I have been a Christian for more than ten years. I have experienced God in supernatural ways that I would never have imagined in my life. A few years ago, I got the desire to enroll in a Bible college. However, the question was, which one?
Now, in 2021, I did a Google search on Bible training colleges in the Caribbean. Lo and behold, the free Christian Leaders Institute turned up! When I saw the word free, I was skeptical. Yet, I followed the link and saw that it is linked with a Jamaican Christian college website. So I decided to read more, and then I decided to enroll in the Christian Leaders Institute. After enrolling, I included it on my Facebook profile to declare that I am a student at Christian Leaders Institute, an online Grenada Tuition Free Bible School. It is legit! Perhaps others like me are interested.
My Christian Leaders Institute Training is important to me because I get the opportunity to obtain official training from men and women of God who can instill the word of God to me. In addition, I will utilize the training for teaching the Word of God to children, preaching, and teaching the unreached individuals where I am called to do His work. Also, I like being a part of a Bible college that is non-denominational and stands for essential beliefs, including the Trinity, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
I am grateful to God for using CLI to bring complementary training to individuals around the world. I am exceptionally privileged to be a part of this global movement from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
