Journey to Ministry Study Online

My name is Merve Joseph. I am studying at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here). The following is my journey to ministry study online at CLI.

My Family and Work

I am from the beautiful Caribbean twin-island states of Antigua and Barbuda. I grew up in the small village of New Winthropes in the island’s northern region. My extraordinary wife is Tallio. Together we have an amazing daughter, Keziah Joseph, age nine (9).

My employment is with the Government of Antigua within the Family and Social Service Division. I am in the Counselling Unit, where I have functioned as a Biblical counselor for approximately eight (8) years. I desire to continuously present Jesus Christ as our life and the solution in all our earthly circumstances.

My Journey to Ministry Study Online at CLI

Growing up, I attended the Wesleyan Holiness Church with my great aunt, Ms. James, on Sundays. However, during my teenage years through my young adulthood, I only attended church on “old year’s eve” to ring in the New Year!

I started thinking about the meaning of my life and my purpose here on planet earth in 2000. After I tragically tore my ACL during the first University basketball game of my senior year. In my mid-twenties, preceding my university years, I started attending the St. John’s Pentecostal Church in the capital city of Antigua. Sometime during the Pentecostal journey, I called upon the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. I had no earthly idea what it meant to have the Lord as my Savior during those years.

After that, I spent ten (10) years in the Pentecostal Denomination. I was trying to fill the deep-seated spiritual vacuum within my spirit that only Jesus Christ Himself is the source. Eventually, I met the Person of Jesus Christ. The People to People Ministry taught me who Jesus is and what He means in my life. Today, I know that I am a child born of God, and my passion is to proclaim Jesus Christ!

Through the Christian Leaders Institute online, I will be better equipped to proclaim Jesus Christ. I will also know His Word more accurately and effectively. Thank you for reading my journey to ministry study online!
