If you are a new Christian, you might want to take Christian Basics, Old Testament Survey, and New Testament Survey. These three courses will strengthen your walk with God and ground you in basic Christianity.

The Bible School programs at the Christian Leaders Institute offer various topics that students are interested in. You may not be interested in becoming ordained or interested in becoming a minister – that’s fine. Enjoy the free online Bible school classes.

Pastoral Training That Includes Many Ministry Courses

Many pastors have not received formal ministry training. In fact, a large segment of pastors worldwide cannot afford formal ministry training.

Christian Leaders Institute provides a Bible School program that offers existing and new pastors high-quality ministry training.

Many existing pastors do not need credentials; they want to take ministry classes.

Christian Leaders Institute offers Theological, Ministry, and Biblical Courses.

Ministry Credentials for Bible School Programs

If you are interested in serving in church ministries, ministry credentials reflect that you have completed ministry courses in your interest and giftedness. Local churches and ministries need trained and credentialed Christian leaders.

Credentials are academic recognition that training in specific topics has been completed. You do not confer credentials on yourself. Institutions like the Christian Leaders Institute or College confer these credentials. These credentials recognize that you have completed Bible school programs of study.

Credentials Available to Christian Leaders Institute and Christian Leaders College graduates.

Ministry Awards Credentials

Awards are granted by Christian Leaders Institute. These awards are considered “Adult Education” awards that have credibility with many churches, ministries, and businesses. These award credentials do not require the high school admission requirement or the writing requirement. They do, however, recognize that you have completed courses in a specific area of concentration.

College Certificate, Diploma, and Degree Credentials

College credentials are granted by Christian Leaders College. Christian Leaders College has applied for and been accepted into Applicant Status with ABHE for accreditation recognition.

Graduates of Christian Leaders College are able to apply in the Master’s degree programs of some of our accredited partner institutes. Ohio Christian University and Kairos Project are two of these partners. They offer Master Degree Opportunities in the following areas.

Christian Home Schooling Ministers

We think of a homeschool teacher as a home discipleship minister. Many churches have Sunday school programs for their children. Those parents who home school are ministers. Christian Leaders Institute gives homeschooling teachers and homeschooled children many opportunities. Click here to find out more.

Preaching Website

Dr. Bruce Ballast contributes to a preaching blog site that keeps you up to date with ideas and resources that enhance your preaching and communication if you are a pastor or public speaker.  Click here to connect to preachingacts.com

More and more ministry jobs are hard to come by. These Bible school programs may fit someone who loves ministry and also loves supporting themselves through various means.
