Christian Leaders Institute – A Detailed Discussion
Does Free Mean Free?
In what ways is this opportunity “free?”
Nothing is free from expense; someone must support the creation and maintenance of the courses. That is where Christian Leaders (Ministries) come in. Christian Leaders is a 501(c) religious non-profit founded in 2001 by Henry Reyenga, Rich DeVos, and Ron Parr. The vision is to multiply difference-makers for Christ in every rank, every race, and every region.
So, free means accessible to you and millions of others who may need an opportunity; the poor and rich of the world have the same access. If you have access to the internet, you can access free Christian resources. Some of you may be in a position to help support this opportunity so that poor people can access high-quality education. We welcome you to give, but you have no obligation.
