Greetings to all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My name is Brian Bassham and I am on a ministry walk with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I live in the United States of America. I grew up in a home that believed in the existence of God and the Bible is His Word, but a relationship with God was never pursued. We didn’t go to church, and we never had devotions of any kind. Sadly, God did not rule in our home, and many issues persisted in my household as a result. My parents indulged in many carnal desires that hurt their relationship and ultimately caused their marriage to fail. I was an only child, and I knew from an early age that I wanted to be different than my parents were. I didn’t want the issues that controlled them to control my life. I didn’t want those issues to lead to bigger and worse issues in the future.
I quit school when I was 17 due to a lack of care from myself and my household. I moved in with my grandparents not long afterward and with their help and guidance, I was able to acquire a G.E.D and eventually a job. My grandparents also loved the Lord and understood the importance of a relationship with God. I would attend church with them from time to time, but I never allowed God into my heart. I wasn’t in church to learn about the Lord, I was just simply there because I felt it was the right thing to do.
In 2011, I went to work for a devout Christian man who took me under his wing. He talked to me about God a ministry walk with Him, and he asked me to attend church with him and his family sometime. I eventually did go to church with him, and as I attended the service and listened to the Pastor, I became more interested and curious to know more about God. I kept attending that church and eventually gave my life to the Lord in 2012.
My life has not been the same since. As I have studied the Word of God and spent time with him on my ministry walk, I have come to understand the importance of our lives for we are not just here to do our own will. We are here ultimately to embrace a relationship with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. I have faced many obstacles and issued along the way, and every time I encounter these issues, God always reminds me of who I am in my ministry walk with Him. I am very thankful for His guidance.
I plan to use this training from CLI to further my ministry walk with the Lord and to broaden my understanding of Him and His word. I will seek to show others through my ministry the God of my life, the God of the Holy Bible, and help them to understand the grace that he has for them. In the world that we live in, we can not have too many men of God. I want to be a “fisher of men” and preach the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
