Become ordained as a Christian Minister withine One Year

Christian Leaders Alliance is excited to partner with Christian Leaders Institute to provide a completely free study and ordination program called the Christian Minister Ordination role.

This program is a one-year study that covers the essentials of being a well-trained minister. This program requires ten classes and 32 credits. These ten online classes are completely free of charge. The generous gifts of vision partners support them.

Here are the individual ministry training classes you need to complete to receive this Christian Minister ordination.

The Christian Leaders Award focuses on ten courses. You will, first of all, enroll and take the admissions activity. This activity gives you a great start at Christian Leaders Institute.

The deacon minister ordination class (1 Credit) teaches you about ordination. Men or women are welcomed to be ordained as Christian ministers with the Christian Leaders Alliance. This deacon minister class explains all this in more detail.

These classes will give you the training you need to do a wedding, funeral, baptism, communion, pastoral care, and most general roles of ministry.
