Ministry Training in Texas

Hi! My name is Crystal Addis from USA. I live in Lubbock, TX and I enjoy southern living! I recently got married to the love of my life and have enjoyed this season of marriage. Doing ministry in my town is rewarding and something I enjoy. I am thankful to live in a country where I am allowed to work in ministry and share my faith with the lost freely. I am thankful that there are not too many challenges in ministry in my geographical area. The biggest challenge would be fighting against the darkness and standing in faith that God has already overcome!

I came to the know The Lord when I was 13 years-old. I did not grow up in a Christian home but something in me was drawn to learn the Bible. I spent some time learning about Him but truly surrendered to the call in my life when I turned 30 years-old. I had gone back and forth with my spiritual walk but something super naturally happened inside me that caused me to make some big changes in my life and to truly seek Him in my every being. Since then my relationship has deepened and I have felt His movement in my life in more ways than I could ever describe. He is truly faithful!

I currently work in a Church as a Life Croup Coordinator and my dream is to really flourish in this area. I want to be a person that my congregation can count on to connect people and to truly understand what fellowship means! I want to bring people to know Him more and to seek connection with other believers. I believe I have a calling in my life to be a pastor and I believe my position in the church and seeking education will help me to reach this calling! I feel like this is something that has always been impressed on my heart but I never felt the confidence or commitment to pursue it! My Church has truly taken a chance on me and pastors have mentored me and have been investing in my life for some time now. I also have a supportive husband and supportive family who speak life into me daily!

A scholarship at CLI would help me fulfill a call to minister to others. With being a newlywed, finances are going more towards building a strong foundation for our family and a scholarship would help grow me spiritually but also help my family financially!

I close with a prayer request! Please pray that God will continue to guide me and lead me! I ask that my husband and I are in your prayers as we embark on a new journey of marriage and that we will always be supportive of one another and that we will flourish in the call God has on us as a couple and as a family!
