The Christian Leaders Alliance

Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is connected to the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI). CLI does the training, the Christian Leaders Alliance guides the licensing and ordaining of clergy through a process of study and local connections. Internet scams make your licensing or ordination more of a financial transaction. Christian Leaders Alliance connects you with an ecuministry certification.

Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is blurring the historical lines between clergy and laity. CLA is passionate that local volunteers or bi-vocational Christian leaders are also given access to clergy standing both globally and locally.  You do not move away from your center of influence, but stay where you are to champion more gospel impact!

Sign up now to begin your generosity-driven ministry training at Christian Leaders Institute. You can study all the classes free after you finish the introductory class. Then, you only need to take one more class and you can apply for CLA recognized licensed wedding officiant certification.

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.
