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 managed and placed the clergy. Clergy members were usually trained, licensed, or ordained. Most were career clergy members. The volunteer ministers were considered lay leaders but not clergy.

The grassroots way was lost. We believe that volunteers, bi-vocational, or vocational ministry leaders comprise the official clergy.

Christian Leaders Institute is exponentially training and mobilizing Christian leaders through online training. The Christian Leaders Alliance is recognizing these leaders with licensed and ordained clergy certifications.
