Christian Leaders Alliance Ordination Methodology

  1. Study the Bible and Ministry Training
    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.  Submit to a Minister Credential Process including local Endorsements
    After candidates for ministry credentials complete their ministry training classes, they go though a  ministry recognition process where they must gather recommendations from people who know them. The candidates are prayed over and commissioned to their minister role.   At the conclusion of this process, they will be given minister/clergy status.
  3. Posted on the Global Ordination Directory 
    After they are given minister status the newly credentialed minister will be posted in the official Christian Leaders Alliance Directory.  If a credible charge is made that the ordained leader is not living to the conduct of a Biblical minister, the minister is removed from the global directory. An investigation will occur. Government officials can verify the minister credentials of a Christian Leaders Alliance minister.
