"I believe in Christian Leader Institute for many reasons. I have attended Moody Bible College and I was surprised to find the curriculum at CLI to be just as challenging if not more so...for those who are not believers in a free university, I challenge you to take a course or two and compare that with a regular university, and you will surprised."
