Launched Into Ministry
My name is Faith Kajawu; born and bred in Zimbabwe but now live in Botswana. I am taking online Biblical ministry training at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about free Bible and ministry training online, Click Here).
My Early Life Story
I was born into a Christian family. For a long time, our family was part of an Anglican church. Sundays were church days. Evening times before bed were family prayer time led by my mother. I don’t remember giving my life to Christ while young, so I was a Christian by socialization and association.
At a young age, I was a regular Sunday churchgoer type of believer and not really into it. Our local church was small, and a few members would share the word. No one had training. There were no children’s or youth ministries, so my peers and I were not nurtured in a walk with God.
When I was 11, my mother joined one of the new Pentecostal churches. With the teaching of the importance of the Holy Spirit, it was at this stage that my mother became a prayer warrior. She also came up with family prayer programs. My mother’s devotion and prayer life made a huge impact on my life. Her faith laid the foundation for me. I knew that no matter what I am a Christian and Jesus is the answer for every situation in my life.
Spiritual Growth Journey
As an independent youth, I moved to a prophetic church. There, I met my husband, a pastor for that church. Through marriage, I automatically launched into ministry. I became a co-pastor with him at one of the church branches. My husband is a powerful preacher and a man who loves the Lord. However, I ministered because my husband had a call. But what about me? Was I called to ministry?
Without ministry training, I was on a battlefield. It forced me to learn things the hard way. That could have been simplified by training or mentorship. I faced my personal mistakes and a lot of church politics. I discovered the sins that our church leaders had fallen into. That hurt me to the core, and I almost gave up.
However, by God’s grace, I realized that I needed to begin a journey of self-discovery and learning. So I searched online and found the Christian Leaders Institute for online Biblical ministry training. Now, I can learn as much as possible and delve deeper into my relationship with Jesus Christ. So, celebrate with me and pray for me as I begin this new learning journey!
