The Christian Leaders Alliance provides minister credentials, including Licensed, Ordained, and Life Coach Minister certification for Christian Leaders Institute students and graduates.

Clergy Credentials Program

Licensed Clergy – 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 – 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.

The Clergy DirectoryThe Clergy Directory posts those who have completed the Christian Leaders Alliance Clergy Credentials programs.
