Pastoring Ministry Call
My name is Noah Carroll and I have a pastoring ministry call on my life. I’m a twenty-one year old from Richmond, VA in the United States of America. I grew up with loving Christian parents and attending church semi-frequently as a child. However, it wasn’t until I was fourteen years old and attended a youth camp that I came to follow Jesus. After a very powerful worship service, I found myself staying up until the wee hours of the morning speaking with a youth leader about the gospel and what that meant to me. We discussed who Jesus was, and what He did. It was that night that Jesus saved me and changed me.
That same week, I felt the call into the ministry. God has been faithful and has allowed me to serve on staff in a church for the last four years in many different capacities. I have been a student ministry intern to now being a worship leader. That said, with my heart’s desire and God’s call on my life being to pastor a church, I had been seeking out a way to receive the necessary education without going so heavily in debt. And then from a simple Google search, I discovered Christian Leaders Institute. Being a part of Christian Leaders Institute has been incredible, it has allowed me to get my degree at my own speed and pace. It has given me the education that I needed and wanted. I thank God for Christian Leaders Institute, as you all have helped in ways you could never know. Though it may sound cliche, CLI has quite literally changed my life and has helped me realize my pastoring ministry call!
