Chaplain Ministry Degrees (Available August 1, 2018)

Christian Leaders Institute offers a strong option for those entering into Chaplaincy. The Program is designed to give a comprehensive understanding of the cognitive topics needed for effective Chaplaincy. There is an ever-increasing need for both ministry (upside) and vocational (paid) ordained chaplains.

The Christian Leaders Institute Chaplaincy study program goes beyond many Bible Colleges because it includes many subjects not covered at traditional institutions.

Many Ordained (students may choose to pursue the Chaplain Minister Ordination upon completion of the Bachelor in Chaplaincy Degree) Christian Leaders Institute graduates now occupy both ministry and vocation positions.
