Learning the Bible more
Ministry Calling

My name is Camille Jean-Marie Benjamin, and I have recently embarked on a small women’s ministry. I wanted to learn the Bible more deeply and found the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online Bible classes, Click Here). Residing in London, in the United Kingdom, I have a long-standing career in teaching. I have formal training as a children’s nurse and a science teacher and have studied a Masters I Education. My passion is for empowering children and women. I am married and blessed with four children. I was raised in a Pentecostal church and baptized at the age of fourteen years old. All of my family remain dedicated as Christians, and I have always had a heart for Christ.

My Youth

I enjoyed church from a young age. I loved going to services with my parents and my favorite aunt. The music was always so lively and heartfelt. It moved me. However, as a teen, I wanted to fit in with friends, and my commitment waned slightly. In my early twenties, I reconnected with church friends and never looked back. I embraced every opportunity available in church, from Bible study to summer retreats and camp meetings. I discovered so much more as a young adult about fasting to strengthen my faith and outreach ministry. My love for the Lord and God’s word has continued to grow and has kept me grounded as a person. I aim to let His love shine through all areas of my life. It is a great pleasure to share my many testimonies of God’s greatness with friends and people I meet along life’s way.

My Spiritual Dream

Over twenty years ago, it was prophesied that I would become a Pastor or Christian leader. This is an experience that has happened a few times since, in different churches. I had heard about prophecy but didn’t take much notice and pushed any thoughts about it to the back of my mind. As the years rolled on, I felt a stronger pull to ministry. Now, I embrace the fact that God has a calling on my life. During adulthood, I overcame self-doubt and anxiety related to work, which affected my confidence. I really know Jesus as my personal Savior and my Refuge.

My dream is to develop my small Bible study group into a full women’s ministry that can lead non-believers to Christ. The hope is to continue to grow in faith and as a women’s minister. During the beginning of 2020, when the world halted due to Covid-19, the Lord nudged me to look for a ministry school. God gave me the confidence to use lockdown to learn the Bible more and deepen my understanding of it. Then, He blessed me with the Christian Leaders Institute. I knew I could not afford an expensive course, but I truly believe that when God calls you to an assignment, He will make a way. Thank you, CLI, for being the way that the Lord has made.

May God bless everyone on his or her walk with Him.
