study for ministry

My Journey

Hello! My name is Korey Lincoln. I am from central Texas in the USA but live in Northeast Texas, just outside the Dallas metroplex. Happily married to my wife Ashley for over 11 years, we have one beautiful daughter named Lexi. We are all animal lovers. Our family includes three cats and three corgis. Called by God to ministry, I found the Christian Leaders Institute to study for ministry.

I grew up in church and felt called to ministry around 13. However, I then fell off my path by letting life get in the way. I went several years doing my own thing and forgetting to give glory to God. Eventually, God called me back. At 31, I thought about the first time I heard God speak to me about going into ministry. That is when I realized I was down the wrong path.

My Ministry Calling and Study for Ministry at CLI

One morning, I was in a major car accident on the way to work. I was in the hospital for several weeks. That’s where I found the Christian Leaders Institute. After reading what Christian Leaders was all about, I knew that finding CLI’s website was a sign from God. Therefore, I immediately signed up to study for ministry.

I aim to be a spiritual teacher and counselor to those in need. I want to help troubled youth and couples needing help in their marriage or offer pre-marriage counseling and wedding services. Eventually, God willing, I would like to become a full-time pastor. My journey with CLI is just beginning!
