As a global religious society or denomination, Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is an ecuministry organization that serves credentialed ministers who serve in ministry in our clergy network.

An ecuministry religious organization allows its credentialed ministers to hold dual minister credentials. So, for example, someone can be credentialed with the Christian Leaders Alliance and have standing in another denomination or religious society.

CLA has developed a program for ministers in different ordination roles. All roles are ordained clergy roles, but we reference different statuses to reflect the different training levels and numbers of endorsements.

Thousands of Officiants Commended, Licensed, and Ordained and Coaching ministers now make up the clergy ordination network. See Minister Directory

Christian Leaders, NFP, Inclusion and Disclosure Policy for Christian Leaders Alliance and Soul Centers. 

*Christian Leaders, NFP, teaches from a Biblical worldview and has a Statement of faith, Privacy Policy, and Terms and Conditions. These documents guide the ministry credential program.

We do not discriminate against the opportunity to study at Christian Leaders Institute or “be posted” with minister credentials based on ethnicity, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, immigration or migration status, economic circumstances, strata, previous Christian religious tradition, or ability to donate for the free training at the Christian Leaders Institute.

We require that ministers of Soul Centers agree to the statement of faith, and there is a monthly or yearly fee that supports the soul center administration.

Reporting Moral Failure in Ministers of the CLA and Soul Centers

Credentialed ministers with the Christian Leaders Alliance must live godly and moderate lives, as reflected in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. 

Any form of illegal verbal, sexual, or physical abuse will not be acceptable or tolerated. Credible knowledge of public moral and criminal failure will remove the credentialed minister from this network.
