Licensed Wedding Officiant Training

Warmest greetings in the name of our precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am Charlette Amons, married to Pastor Larry Amons, and we live in northern New Jersey, USA. I am also a student at the Christian Leaders Institute, where I studied the Licensed Wedding Officiant training (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).

We church planted and founded Cornerstone Apostolic Temple in 2018, where I am first lady, prayer intercessor, and servant leader at church and in my community by owning and operating a non-profit 501c3 organization called Repairer of Broken Walls Inc. At ROBW, we serve at-risk youth and the elderly. I have two young adult children and one 4-year-old grandson.

My Spiritual Journey

I grew up in a single-parent household where my mother was, and still is, a strong Christian influence in my life at her tender age of 73. She was my first spiritual mentor and example for living a consecrated life for God. We attended church services several days per week, and I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at about nine years old. However, I rebelled and found myself in an unequally yoked marriage at 21. From there, the marriage went downhill as I was young, immature, and did not know my identity.

By the time I divorced, I was in my 30s with two young kids to raise on my own. I led a lukewarm Christian life while trying to rebound from the marriage. I aspired to learn more about myself in the world, not knowing the path God had in store for me. Finally, God delivered me after close to 20 years of being divorced and single, which I call my wilderness season. I became “sold out” for Christ. The Holy Spirit transformed my life.

My Ministry Calling

Shortly after walking in obedience, the Lord sent my current husband Larry. God wrote our love story, and we married on my birthday. I always joke around and say that God gave me a husband for my birthday gift. He is the gift that keeps on giving!

What the enemy meant for evil, God turned it for good. Because my wilderness season lasted almost two decades, I’ve obtained plenty of experience navigating single life with the dos and don’ts. Today, I minister to and coach women in the Christian biblical way in being content in their single season, Kingdom courtship, saving purity, and the ultimate traps that ungodly serial dating can bring.

Licensed Wedding Officiant Training at CLI

This leads to my current experience in completing the Licensed Wedding Officiant training with Christian Leaders Institute. Becoming a licensed Wedding Officiant through CLI is much more than paying a fee and obtaining a “run of the mill” certificate in the mail. Classes teach the very essence of Christian marriage and how God sees covenant unions. How God sees marriage is drastically different than how the world understands it. According to the Bible, precise definitions of the role of a man and that of a woman are taught and supported with scripture.

There’s a dire need to bring others who desire to get married into biblical understanding as well as communicate God’s reflection of marriage for their union to be successful. Again, it’s about having solid scriptural values that bring added confidence in performing Christian covenants. This training, coupled with my life experiences, has allowed me to be just that – confident when performing wedding ceremonies.

As a Licensed Minister through CLI and an ambassador for Jesus Christ, I have compassion and love for serving God’s people. I lead a repentant and consecrated life conducive for the Holy Spirit to reside and operate. I believe you cannot lead unless you’ve mastered serving. Keeping a humbled heart in God’s eyes is vital. My spiritual dream is to bring 1 million souls to Jesus Christ while touching the lives of the least, the lost, and the left out.
