Hi, my name is James Derera, and I am taking free online ministry education courses at Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online Bible classes, Click Here). I am originally from Zimbabwe and currently reside in South Africa. Married to my beautiful wife, Mellisa, we have a lovely and amazing daughter Keisha Meagan. I am saved and currently serve as a junior pastor at a local church in Pretoria, Family Hope Centre.
My Spiritual Journey
I grew up with divorced parents, and it was not easy for me. Knowing that my parents separated affected me. I only managed to complete my High School studies (O Level). Further, I did not proceed with education due to financial instability. There was this void in my life that nothing else could fill. I got involved in so many things thinking that I could find satisfaction in them. However, it was all fruitless. Then, I realized that only Jesus Christ could save my life. So, I decided to give my life to Him. He filled that void that nothing could fill!
Online Ministry Education Courses at CLI
My wish is to see all families united and thriving in the Lord. I want the young people to find freedom from the things of the world in Christ. Considering how I grew up, it is very paining to see how you can be affected by the affairs in your home as a young person. But, then, it is easy to do things and become involved in other reckless things in the name of finding peace or satisfaction. So it is my prayer that many families be united in and with Christ, and the young people become free from every destruction.
I wanted to receive further training for ministry. I found Christian Leaders Institute online. Now I take the free online ministry education courses at CLI. Equipped and gaining credibility from CLI will strengthen my ministry service.
