My name is Vince Stapleton. I live in Indiana in the United States of America. I have lived in this area since I first started school. I currently work as a subcontractor doing construction & carpentry work. I used to run an automotive repair business in the town my family lives in, but it was not sustainable for a multitude of reasons. So, now I am happy doing carpentry work and only do the automotive repair as a hobby mostly.
As a small child, I can remember going to church with my mom, dad, and brothers. My mother and maternal Grandma taught me about Lord over the years. They are faithful, and loving women and I thank God for their presence in my life. Unfortunately, there were some gaps in church attendance at a few times in my family’s history, and this tempted me. I started to back-slide during these times.
I had a bad motor vehicle accident at the age of 20. Jesus allowed me to stay and raise my daughter and blessed me with a son and one more daughter. I completed Collision Repair & Refinishing through Lincoln Tech in 2006 and worked in this field for 10 years. As a believer, I professed my love for Christ to those I love and spent time with over the years. Though I am not perfect, His grace abounds.
My common law wife passed away at a young age, and I had a couple failed attempts at new love. I had many struggles, raising my children over the years. We stayed a family and I made sure we attended church. I was grateful to receive help from family. They had been my motivation for years, and still are to a degree, but I had somehow taken my eye off the cross. Facing my own demons and repenting I have been filled with the Holy Spirit again! I have re-devoted myself to spreading the gospel of Christ per God’s gentle nudging. We often have an empty feeling inside, which I believe can only be filled with the love of Christ. Keeping God in the center of our universe is key to happiness! I know that God only tests me to strengthen me, and for that I am thankful. Though it may not seem like it at times, He does not give us anything we can’t handle.
I am grateful to have found CLI. I had been ordained already but felt I needed more quality training. Then I found this God sent “freemium” style training through CLI! Without it, I would still be untrained. However, I am now developing ministry skills which I feel are most needed to minister effectively to society.
I only wish to boast of Christ and hope to minister to people in the area. CLI provides an excellent program for local ministry online training. I live in a more effective way using the skills I developed through CLI. My dream is to prove God’s existence through the scientific method, which in my opinion has been done in many ways! So basically theology, archeology, & real-science are major interests and hobbies of mine. I hope to utilize these in glorifying the Kingdom of God.
This program is great for testing your dedication and developing your ministry skills. I recommend anyone seeking guidance on how to better minister to God’s children to join CLI and hopefully complete your courses gracefully!
Thanks to everyone at CLI!
