The Christian Leaders Alliance provides minister credentials, including Commended (Lay), Licensed, Ordained Minister Credentials for Christian Leaders Institute or College graduates.

Minister Credentials Programs

Commended Minister – The Commended Minister program has been traditionally thought of as a lay minister category training. This program incorporated primarily mini-courses that take less time to complete.

Licensed Clergy Minister – The Licensed Clergy program is designed for those who are primarily volunteering or part-time ministers. Ordinarily, these ministers have another means for their primary support. There are fewer ministry study courses, and there are fewer recommendations needed.

Ordained Clergy Minister – The Ordained Clergy program is designed for those interested in deepening their ministry preparedness. Those interested in volunteer, part-time, or full-ministries can find a program that fits them. There are three recommendations required in all ordination programs.

Life Coach Minister Credentials -The Life Coach Minister credentials include non-clergy and clergy credentials. There are different recommendations required depending on the Life Coach Minister Credential.
