Youth Minister Education
My name is Loretta Evans. I am receiving a free Youth Minister education at Christain Leaders Insitute. I live in Saint Petersburg, Florida, in the United States of America. I was born to Bennie and Lois Peterson. My mom passed away on Christmas day in 1978. My dad passed away a month ago on April 22, 2018. I am married to Robert Evans, Jr. and we have four beautiful daughters and one handsome son. Our children have given us eleven grandchildren.
I am currently a retired school teacher. I taught for 20 years.
I have always known the Lord all of my life. Going to church, Bible study and Sunday school were not a choice for us as children, it was a given. We lived in a small town that only had worship services at our church on the 2nd and 4th Sundays because the Pastors had another church they led on the 1st and 3rd Sundays.
My dream is to become a youth minister. My goal is to save as many youths as I can. It is really sad to see so many youths on the streets throwing their lives away by getting caught up in drugs, robbery, and killing each other. I want to spread the word of the Lord and help guide them to a walk with the Lord. I want to show them that there is a better path for them to travel. All they need is faith in the Lord and someone to help lead them in that direction.
Christian Leaders Insitute has helped me to reflect on my youth minister education in ministry. It helps me to renew and grow in my faith in the Lord, and most of all it helps me to stay focused on God and his call as I receive this youth minister education. When I was a school teacher, I used to talk to the students about life, God, and their faith. I realized some of the students had never been to a church or even knew of God at all.
I have always wanted to be a minister. When I was a young child, I used to pretend I was a preacher. I used to gather my friends and have church. I was the pastor and we would sing and shout and have a good old time for the Lord. As I got older, I kind of moved away from that dream because I got married, my husband was in the military, and we traveled a lot. Besides, back then no one really was into listening to women ministers.
CLI ministry training is very important to me because it is going to provide me with a free education. They do this through the passion of generous partners who support these revolutionary free online college-level classes. I won’t have to worry about paying out of my pocket for an expensive education, or getting loans and going into debt trying to pay them back. It will prepare me to be successful in reaching my dream and goals. Most of all, it will bring me closer to the Holy Spirit.
