Are you called to ministry? Christian Leaders Alliance is a network of ordained Christian leaders who are called to share the love of God through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Christian Leaders Alliance offers ordination credentials to Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) students who graduate with mission credentials or collegiate credentials.

Christian Leaders Alliance guides students through a process where they study ministry online at Christian Leaders Institute. Students will get three local recommendations for their Deacon Minister ordination. These Ecuministry Ordinations are usually done locally. The ordained leaders are globally recognized here at Christian Leaders Alliance.

Your ordination credentials are documented and maintained here at the Christian Leaders Alliance.

The Christian Leaders Alliance Council gives ordained leaders a spiritual cover. This council is a Bishop or Elder Council for the ordained graduates. Rev. Henry Reyenga directs this council.


Here is a current list of ordained minister roles available through Christian Leaders Alliance.

The Christian Leaders Alliance

Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is connected to the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI). The Institute does the training, the Christian Leaders Alliance guides the ordaining in a local process with local church leaders. Internet scams make your ordination a transaction. Christian Leaders Alliance connects you with an ecuministry ordination.

Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is blurring the line between clergy and laity. CLA is passionate that local revival leaders are identified, trained with high-quality classes, and mobilized in their local communities. You do not move away from your center of influence, but stay where you are to champion more gospel impact!

CLA goes back to how the early church mobilized local leaders.

Sign up now to begin your generosity-driven ministry training. Then, you can study all the classes free after you finish the introductory class. Then you only need to take one more class and you can apply for CLA recognized ordination that is connected to local Christian leaders.

History of the Ordained Minister in the Early Church

The line between clergy and laity was blurry in the first two centuries of the church. In the 300s, around the time of Roman Emperor Constantine, churches stopped identifying local leaders out of their congregations. Instead, they began “calling” them from other places. Eventually, the church hierarchy placed the clergy.

The grassroots way was lost.

At the time of the early church, local churches planted leaders everywhere by generously ordaining deacon ministers. The deacons were the ministers. In fact, the word “minister” is the Latin translation of the Greek word “deacon.” These “deacon ministers,” men and women, were heroes of faith. Few were ever paid. Many died as martyrs.

Christian Leaders Institute is exponentially training and mobilizing Christian leaders through online training. The Christian Leaders Alliance is recognizing these local “deacon ministers! A locally ordained minister is ordained as a partnership between CLI-CLA and local mentors, pastors, and leaders.
