Ministry Degree education

Hello and God bless!! My name is Sean A. Allen. I am an ordained elder seeking a ministry degree education at the Christian Leaders Institute.

My Journey of Faith

I was born and raised and currently reside in Pontiac, MI, just 30 minutes outside of the great city of Detroit. I am a proud veteran of the United States Army Military Police Corps, where I served for eight years. Although God told my mother while I was in the womb that I would be called to ministry, it was during my term as a soldier serving in Korea that I answered The Lord’s call of salvation for my life.

After completing my term of military service in 1999, I returned to Michigan. Soon after, the leaders installed me as a minister within the “True Church House of Prayer” denomination. There I served as a Sunday School Superintendent for six years. In 2005, I joined the prestigious “Church Of God In Christ ” organization. They ordained me as an elder. I also continued my ministry as a Sunday School teacher/Superintendent. In 2009, my journey brought me to the “Church of God Sanctified.” I served there as a Sunday School Teacher, an associate minister, and an interim pastor.

Finding CLI for a Ministry Degree Education

Teaching the Bible and Christian apologetics has always been my passion. I studied these fields for many years. However, I never attended a seminary or a Bible College. So imagine my surprise when I discovered the Christian Leaders Institute with its ministry and apologetics courses. Furthermore, it is literally a few cities over from where I live in Michigan.

So far, the courses are an added blessing to what I’ve already learned on my faith journey. I look forward to the day when I can say that I have my ministry degree after further education at CLI! Please be in prayer for me as I continue on this journey. Thank you!
