Church Planting Program

Are you looking for a church planting program that combines high-quality training with ordination options if you need to be ordained? A typical church planter program is either too little training or way to0 much training. Christian Leaders Institute seeks to give you everything you need to be prepared to start a new church.

Church planters have been ordained to ministry since the New Testament era. At Christian Leaders Institute, we offer you the training to plant a church and a church planter ordination designation.  If you already are ordained at Joseph-Musilathe Christian Leaders Ordination level, you do not have to be ordained again as a Church Planter. This church planting program is rigorous but certainly doable!

If you are not already ordained through the Christian Leaders Institute Ordination, these classes will guide you through the process to be ordained as a church planter. This church planting program needed training concluding in a church planting action class that actually takes you through the process, step by step, of planting a church. You will be tested to see if you are a church planter. You will find out if people see you as a Church Planter. Planting a church is hard work.

The Church Planter Ordination is open to men or women and includes Qualifications, Competence, Verification, and Calling. You also need three endorsers. (You are allowed to use your previous endorsers if ordained at the officiant or women in ministry ordination.  After you are ordained, or you have an arrangement with another ordained authority, you will receive a call from Christian Leaders Alliance to plant a new church.

If you are ordained through the Christian Leaders Alliance, you name will appear in the Christian Leaders Ordination directory for your credibility.
