Christian Leaders Alliance is a network of Ordained Christian Leaders who purpose to expand the reach of Christianity through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over 2,500 Ordained or Licensed Ministers now make up the ordination network as of April 2020. More are added all the time.

Christian Leaders Institute uses online resources to deliver ministry training to Alliance ordained leaders, but all ordained leaders must have three recommendations vouching for their character. Throughout the history of the Christian church, ordained leaders experienced ministry training, recommendations, and commissioned by others. Christian Leaders Alliance honors this ordination tradition.

Leaders are commissioned locally as licensed or ordained clergy members. These are not online licensed or ordained ordinations. They are local with local endorsements.

Legally, Christian Leaders Alliance is the ordaining arm of Christian Leaders Ministries.

Christian Leaders Ministries, formerly named Christian Leaders, NFP is a 501 (c) 3 Religious non-profit granted religious exemption in 2007 from the United States Government for worldwide ministry.

Christian Leaders Alliance Ordination Methodology

  1. Study
    Christian Leaders Alliance partners with Christian Leaders Institute who has crafted a study program that includes over 200 credits of college-level ministry training.
  2. Ministry Ordination Study and Local Connection
    After candidates for ordination complete college-level ministry training classes, they take an ordained minister class that explains what historical and local ordination means. At the conclusion of this class, ordination candidates must secure three recommendations. One from clergy, one from an ordained/community recommender, and one from their spouse, if married, or a friend. Then, the candidate is locally ordained.
  3. Posted on the Global Ordination Directory 
    At the completion of that process, the locally ordained Christian leader is posted on the Christian Leaders Alliance ordination directory. If a charge is made that the ordained leader is not living to the conduct of an ordained community leader, the person is removed from the global directory. An investigation will occur. Government officials can verify the ordination of a Christian Leaders Alliance ordained minister.
  4. Ordained Life Coach Minister
    The Christian Leaders Alliance in partnership with Christian Leaders Institute has developed an ordained Life Coach Minister program for those who are ordained as deacon ministers with the Christian Leaders Alliance. Click here to find out more.

Christian Leaders Church Denomination

The Christian Leaders Church denomination allows Christian single and traditional Christian married individuals to be ordained as ministers. Christian Leaders Church acknowledges other marriage states as locally recognized worldwide, including polygamy and same-sex marriage. Christian Leaders Church holds the position as prescribed based on 1 Timothy 3 and 1 Corinthians 7, where the Apostle Paul rejects polygamy as a marital status for the ordination of ministers, affirming singles or traditionally married as the reproducible leader units.
