Hawaii Bible School

My name is Derek Fletcher, and I currently live with my family in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’ve been married to my wife for nine years, and together we have three children. I first came to the Lord when I was in college. I was living in a life of sin that revolved around alcohol and self-motives. People that knew me back then would say that they are surprised I didn’t end up dead or in jail. One morning my senior year of college after waking up from a particularly bad night the Lord said that this is not what he has planned for me; I am meant for more. That morning I asked for forgiveness of my sins and gave my life to Jesus. That is when my life started to change.

It has now been twelve years since I first came to Jesus Christ. While driving into work, I listen to the Daily Audio Bible Podcast and one morning as the podcast finished the Holy Spirit laid on my heart that I should become a pastor.

To pursue the calling to ministry, I chose to attend classes through CLI because it affords me the opportunity to take classes on my time, which is usually early in the morning before I head into work or later at night once the kids are all in bed. I do not know where the Lord will guide me to use the knowledge I gain from CLI, but I will pray and follow his direction.
My local church is supporting my pursuit by the pastors and elders mentoring and assisting me Additionally I have been in contact with my previous pastor since my family, and I recently moved to Honolulu, and he is also mentoring me. My former pastor’s family and my family are close, so his wife is also mentoring my wife.
