Christian Leaders Alliance has launched the Revival Minister Council. These Mentor Ministers are developing a network of Christian Leaders who are called to provide strategic leadership in their regions for the purpose of bringing revival everywhere.
Christian Leaders Institute is recruiting Mentor Ministers who have the following qualifications:
- Christian leaders who are qualified leaders as set forth in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 2.
- Christian leaders who show life competence, peacemaking, and people maturity.
- Christian leaders who have at least three years experience in ministry, bivocational or vocational. They must be:
- Christian leaders who are ordained as deacon ministers in the Christian Leaders Alliance.
- Christian leaders who are nominated by the Revival Mentor Minister Council or by an existing Mentor Minister in the Mentor Ministry Directory.
- Christian leaders who have a desire to cultivate new and newly ordained ministers in the CLA.
- We highly regard the spouses of the Mentor Minister Leaders. We like the model of Priscilla and Aquilla in the New Testament.
- Christian leaders who are willing to host local CLI graduation and ordination events in their area.
- While Christian Leaders Alliance provides local ordinations with local leaders not connected to Christian Leaders Institute, ordinations through these Mentor Ministers are connected to the doctrines and worldview promoted at Christian Leaders Institute.
- Ordinations through the Christian Leaders Alliance are for those leaders, single or married, in the historic Christian worldview of one man and one woman marriage.1 Timothy 3:2 Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife,1 Timothy 3:12 A deacon must be the husband of but one wife and must manage his children and his household well.The worldview interpretation from these passages was that polygamy was not a conforming marriage state for an ordained leader. Today, for the Mentor Minister directory, we will appoint leaders as Mentor Ministers who believe in that worldview and live it out. In Africa, for instance, we will not appoint a locally ordained Christian leader who is polygamous. While a locally ordained leader may appoint a polygamous or a same-sex marriage leader to an ordination position, we will not appoint a Mentor Minister who is in a non-1 Timothy 3 understanding of the Christian leader’s marriage doctrine and life. Note: We do not deny access at CLI for study to anyone who follows the Christian Leaders terms and conditions and guidelines for study or local ordination, and we do not manage who a local church or ministry may choose to ordain.
- Christian leaders who have a desire to have a relationship with local CLI students or ordained CLA leaders. These leaders are encouraged to host gatherings.
- When someone is nominated and included on the Mentor Minister Directory, that leader can later request to be removed. Or if someone is not a good leadership, doctrine, or life-style fit as determined by the Revival Minister Council, the Revival Minister Council may remove them from the Directory. The Revival Minister Council consists of Brian De Cook, Henry Reyenga, Steve Elzinga, and Roy Lucas.
- Christian leaders who promote Christian Leaders Institute and Christian Leaders Alliance even as they are developing local Christian leaders.
- Christian leaders who are Vision Partners or are planning to be Vision Partners, who model to others this generosity-driven ministry.
- Christian leaders who maintain an updated profile with an updated, quality photo. Leaders may include the website of their church or ministry in their profile.
- Christian leaders who are committed to continuing ministry training.
- Christian Leaders who are willing to attend Revival and Renewal Conferences in their nation if they are offered. This is not required, but it is recommended.
- Christian leaders who have a desire to reach all races and economic situations with the gospel.
