“I have just been rewarded my scholarship and Christian Leaders Basics Certificate, and I am looking forward to working towards my Diploma in Ministry. Tomorrow I start on the Old Testament Survey course.
I would never be able to afford to pay for my Ministry training and I am so grateful to Our Lord for leading me to the CLI.
I can not recommend the CLI highly enough to anyone who has been called to go into Ministry.”

“A seminary-level, college-level theological education online that is availible to everyone even if they don’t have loads of money. The expense of a seminary education effectively shuts a lot of people out of this. I already have a few college degrees and certificates but I really want to take some theology classes and Bible classes to prepare for missionary work in the future. I believe God pointed me to this site, so thank you again, Lord.”

“I’ve been studying with CLI for over a year now and I have learned a lot in this short time. The courses cover a lot of material. The beginning course is nothing compared to all the other classes that you will experience in the long run. The ministry is Jesus-centered. CLI not only covers the subject of Jesus but you also learn Ethics, History of Christianity, how to write sermons, and so much more. The best part is that it is free. I have been without a job for a long time and had no money to pay for courses that other schools require to pay for. Thank the Lord God for leading me to CLI.”

What other place allows you to take a course free up front with only a request that you do all God enabled you to do to bring funds for the school as you go so that others can also become trained leaders in God’s Army!!!”
