Phil Patterson Jr –
“My name is Phil Patterson Jr and I am currently a student at Christian Leaders Institute. I live in the United States and ministry is an awesome but at times challenging experience. The responses received are not always positive but it is still rewarding to know that I am a part of something positive and life changing. I came to know The Lord through Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale and the teachings of a handful of pastors at the church. Through accepting Christ, baptism, getting involved in community groups and eventually different ministries within the church, I have grown spiritually and in many other ways.”
Phil Patterson Jr. Gets a Scholarship
“My ministry dream is to be able to use the different gifts that God has given me to continue to share the Gospel and reach people that normally would not be considered “reachable” by “normal” methods. Through my musical gift, I have reached more than I would have ever expected and it’s motivated me to continue in hopes of reaching even more people. Getting a scholarship at CLI is important to me because it would help with my ministry and the songs that I write. I would have a lot more biblical knowledge which would show through my lyrics and messages. I also feel it would help me grow in my personal life and spiritual walk.
“I always ask that others keep me and my ministry in prayer when it comes to the opportunities to share as well as me having the courage to write the messages that God wants me to share, even if I am nervous about the type of reactions I may receive. Also that the people who I am able to share with, would be willing to hear the message and that God would use me to plant the seeds in their hearts and minds.”
