Ministry Education Training

Ministry Education Training

My name is Melissa Blankenship and I am receiving ministry education training at CLI. I am a single mother of two wonderful young adults. My son is 18 his name is Justin. I also have a daughter Savannah and she is 17. I have been to college a few times but withdrew because I didn’t feel psychology was for me. I completed nursing school but also felt that was not my calling.

When I was younger I can remember going to V.B.S with my Uncle Eddie. There was a memory verse contest and I was the winner. I won my first Bible. It had pink flowers on the cover with white lace around the edges. Written on the front in white paint was “Jesus loves you”. I don’t recall much of my childhood, but one day I sat outside under my window. I was crying really hard to Jesus. I can’t remember what was wrong or what I was asking but I believe at that moment is when God heard me and I was saved. I didn’t read the Bible much. I did not think the Lord was speaking to me. I just prayed at night and believed in Jesus.

At 30 years old, I became a meth addict. That’s when the Lord really revealed himself to me. He set me free when I called out to him. I began reading my Bible and leaning on him. He led me to Christian Leaders Institute. Christian Leaders Institute will give me the ministry education training and credits I need to have a degree to be able to become what the Lord has called me to be. I believe if a person is anointed by God to do his will, the way will be taken care of. Now I begin my journey serving the Lord with all my heart, soul and mind. My past experience opens up a world of evangelism to people like me. An area of life the world has forgotten about or writes off as junkies. Jesus said he came to set the captives free, to call sinners to repentance. The Lord said he heals all things and the devil is a liar. With my education and training from Christian Leaders Institute, Satan’s lies and schemes will be exposed. God says that anyone who calls upon Him shall be saved. Now it’s time to spread his word to the lost and forgotten. Thank God he will never leave nor forsake anyone! Praise The Lord!!
