Teacher Training

“Lynette’s testimony tells us about her significant work as a teacher. She has been preparing others in South African churches to become effective Sunday School teachers through further teacher training.”

Teacher Training in South Africa

Hi, my name is Lynette Koekemoer, and I am receiving deeper teacher training at Christian Leaders Institute. I live in the Gauteng region of South Africa. I gave my life to Jesus at the young age of 13 and have always been interested in studying the Word of God. When I finished Matric, I went to “Youth With a Mission” on a discipleship course which was for six months. But, in the end, I left to find a job and support myself.

Then, I went into church Sunday School work. I ended up training Sunday School teachers how to teach through an organization called the “South African National Sunday School Association”. This organization works with all churches who want teacher training for their Sunday School teachers. Life carried on, and soon, I got married. But, sadly, my husband died. Then over the next ten years, I took care of my parents until they passed on.

I always wanted to continue my studies to teach biblical truth, but I could not afford to do it. While I was searching on the internet, God answered my prayers and led me to Christian Leaders Institute. It has not been easy for me since I only have my phone on which to do all my studies.

Since starting the course with CLI, I can see the growth in me. The last lesson about the dark side of leadership really spoke to and challenged me. With God’s help, I believe this is the place for me.

Study Dreams

Study Dreams

My name is Michael Edwin Schooley. My study dreams are being realized at Christian Leaders Institute. I was born in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, the USA in 1996. Growing up, my family served diligently in church. Mom was a Sunday school teacher, and my Dad usually was on the worship team. Jesus was not just a Sunday subject in our home. There has not been a day that Jesus was not brought up in family discussions as well as Bible studies. I knew I needed Christ at six and gave my heart to him. To serve God, I felt a need to start by offering my servitude to my fellow man.

Jesus was in my thoughts daily. I longed all through school to seek after him. I also felt the world’s pressure to be “normal.” Sin was and is something of which I have always been very conscious. My friends never thought that they were doing wrong when I did. God has shown me through my past sins more and more why I need him. I know He will continue to show me my need for Him until my last breath.

Overcoming Learning Disabilities

I finished reading the Bible all the way through when I was twenty. This feat is a big deal to me. Growing up, I discovered I had learning disabilities in reading. God helped to grow in me a love for reading despite this fact. This love for reading gave me the ability to read His word.

I never felt I have a powerful testimony. All I can say is I have always known my wrongs. Jesus did too, and He died and rose from the dead knowing my sins and loving a sinner like me. I hope and pray God blesses my fellow brothers and sisters with joy and peace through my testimony of his unfailing love for me and you.

Now, I am taking these free online ministry training classes at Christian Leaders Institute. God has a plan for my life, and I am eager to serve where he leads me. Thank you, CLI, for this opportunity.

Bible Training Education

Bible Training Education: From Darkness to Light

My name is Rennay Moore, and I am blessed to be receiving free Bible training education at CLI. I currently live in China. I was raised in a Christian family and heard the message of salvation over and over. But I didn’t make that pivotal change until age sixteen. Before that, when asked if I wanted to accept Christ, I would say I’m not ready. Or, I would fold my arms across my chest and wonder when the preacher would be quiet on the subject.

It was not until one night during a worship session at church that I ran out of the church under heavy conviction. Immediately, I ran to my home which was not far from the church. On my knees that night, I cried out, “I surrender, I surrender! I will do what you want me to do.” I accepted Jesus and had my baptism in August of 2001.

Before my conversion, I struggled with depressive and suicidal thoughts. But since coming to Jesus Christ, He has led me to cast my cares on Him. It has been seventeen years and counting. I survived a nervous breakdown, sickness, and vicious warfare.

This free Bible training education opportunity at Christian Leaders Institue is a real blessing to me. God has appointed me for such a time as this, and I’m glad He chose me and called me.  Through this Bible training education at CLI, I will be able to grow in the knowledge of the Bible. I also hope to develop as a leader in the Church as I serve Christ wherever He leads me. My best years are ahead of me. I will preach the gospel and help impact lives wherever I go.
