The Revival Minister Council oversee the ordination process at Christian Leaders Alliance.

This council is jointly led by Elder-Minister DeCook and Elder-Minister Henry Reyenga. Other council members include Deacon-Minister Roy Lucus, Elder-Minister Steve Elzinga, and Elder Todd Hazelton.

In serving the church throughout the world, the council honors the diversity of opinions on male-headship for office bearers. Accordingly, women serving on this council will be designated as Deacon/Ministers.

This council is the oversight council for all the ordinations at the Christian Leaders Alliance. We understand that many who are ordained through the Christian Leaders Alliance have their local or denominational covering as their primary spiritual covering. Others will see Christian Leaders Alliance as their primary church order ordination covering.
