History of the Ordained Minister in the Early Church

The line between clergy and laity was blurry in the first two centuries of the church. In the 300s, around the time of Roman Emperor Constantine, churches stopped identifying local leaders out of their congregations. Instead, they began “calling” them from other places. Eventually, the church hierarchy placed the clergy.

The grassroots way was lost.

At the time of the early church, local churches planted leaders everywhere by generously ordaining deacon ministers. The deacons were the ministers. In fact, the word “minister” is the Latin translation of the Greek word “deacon.” These “deacon ministers,” men and women, were heroes of faith. Few were ever paid. Many died as martyrs.

Christian Leaders Institute is exponentially training and mobilizing Christian Leaders through online training. The Christian Leaders Alliance is recognizing these local “deacon ministers!  A locally ordained minister is ordained as a partnership between CLI-CLA and local mentors, pastors, and leaders.
