Global Ministers Commission

The Global Ministers Commission exists to provide these servant-leaders with a connecting point to encourage, inspire, and support current and future CLA members in their daily walk with Jesus Christ. It will eventually include members from every country where CLA members reside. We plan to invite more than one Global Minister from each nation.

The Global Ministers Commission is a regional touchpoint for the development of the Christian Leaders Alliance. The Global Ministers Commission is the spiritual covering for the Christian Leaders Alliance and Church Ordained leaders.

This Commission is chaired by Global Minister Henry Reyenga, who is president of Christian Leaders, NFP. Global Minister Brian DeCook serves as the secretary. In serving the church throughout the world, the Commission honors the diversity of opinions on women in office. We participate in the ordaining of men and women as Global Ministers.

This Commission is the spiritual covering for the certifications, licensing, and ordination process and program at Christian Leaders Alliance. We understand that many who are ordained through the Christian Leaders Alliance also have their local or denominational oversight for local ministry. This is a global alliance for the mission of the church and the raising up of Christian Leaders.
