Online Bible study opportunity

My name is Arlene Douglas. I am from St. Mary, Jamaica. The online Bible study opportunity blesses me at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here).

My Spiritual Journey

I am a retired Early Childhood educator from St. Mary, Jamaica. I have over 20 years of teaching experience. However, my passion for serving the Lord has always been a constant in my life. A committed Christian for over 45 years, it was a seed planted from an early age. I grew up in Portland, Jamaica, with my parents and 17 siblings. Attending church and participating in family devotions was a must. My mom was baptized while she was pregnant with me. Her faith helped shape my own, and this also made me feel like a special child.

While attending a crusade at the New Testament Assembly in Hope Bay, Portland, I felt called to serve the Lord. I made the decision to follow Him. Since then, I have served in various ministries. I started as a member of the NTA. Later, I became secretary of the youth department, a member of the youth choir, and a member of the Heaven Bound Singers praise and worship team. After moving to St Mary, I became a member of the NTA Hamilton Mountain. I served as secretary for the youth group and later served as Children’s Director at the local and national levels.

In August 1985, I met my husband at a convocation in St Mary. We married in August 1987. We have three adult children and two grandchildren.

Online Bible Study Opportunity at CLI

My passion for souls led me to continue working in ministry, ministering to people on the streets and in their homes. The leaders appointed me as a minister in the office of a missionary and later ordained me as a minister.

My vision now is to broaden my knowledge of the Word of God. That is why I chose to study at the Christian Leaders Institute after my associate pastor encouraged me to check out CLI. I have more time to share the Word of God with others and focus on self-improvement. The hands of God are on my life. I share the Word of God with others so that they can also be a part of the Kingdom of God. It is my desire to fulfill the great commission given to us by Jesus Christ.

I thank CLI for this online Bible study opportunity and its mission to prepare competent servants of God. I pray that God continues to bless this noble institution.
