What is your denomination?

Christian Leaders Institute is non-denominational and draws from the rich biblical perspectives that resonate in many denominations and traditions of Christianity. At Christian Leaders Institute (CLI), we firmly believe in the power of unity in Christ. Ephesians 4:3 instructs us, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace,” underlining the transformative impact of Christian leadership. CLI also embraces many Christian traditions as a well-rounded educational institution. We honor the Bible as the Word of God while acknowledging and valuing the diversity of perspectives within the Christian community. Our commitment is to foster an environment where we can learn from one another and work together to serve God’s kingdom. Statement of Faith This Statement of Faith was adopted by Christian Leaders Institute when CLI began offering classes in 2006. Since then, the Christian Leaders Institute Statement of Faith has guided the development of the classes and worldview. 

What do you believe about the Bible? The Bible is God’s inerrant, infallible, reliable Word, the only final authority for faith and life. (Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 8:20; John 10:35; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21) 

Who is God? God is Trinity, an eternal, loving unity of three divine Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; 2 Corinthians 13:14) God Created the World God created the universe ex nihilo, from nothing, and made all things very good. (Genesis 1-2; Exodus 20:11; Hebrews 11:3) God Created Humanity God created humanity in his image to glorify and enjoy God and to be stewards of creation. (Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 8; Isaiah 43:7; Revelation 4:11; Psalm 37:4) 

What is the fall? Humanity has fallen into sin, and we are totally unable to save ourselves. (Genesis 3; Romans 3:12, 23; Romans 5:12) 

Who is Jesus? Jesus, the promised Messiah of Israel, is fully God and fully man. (Matthew 1:21-23; John 1:1,14; 20:28; Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:14) Jesus’ Life and Victory Jesus was born of a virgin, obeyed God perfectly, worked great miracles, died on a cross, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and reigns over all things. (Luke 1:26-35, Hebrews 4:15; John 14:11, Luke 23-24, Ephesians 1:20-23) Salvation is a Work of God Salvation is merited only by Jesus’ perfect obedience and substitutionary atonement. (Isaiah 53; Hebrews 7:26-27; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Acts 4:12) Salvation is Not Our Work Salvation is entirely God’s gift, not our achievement, and is received by faith in Christ, not works. (John 3:16; Romans 1:16-17; Galatians 2:16-21) 

Who is The Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit gives new birth, unites us to Christ, assures us of His love, leads us in His truth, forms us in His character, equips us with His gifts, and empowers us to be His ambassadors. (John 3:3-8; Acts 1:8; Romans 8; 1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 3:16-21) The Church The church is the one body of God’s people throughout all generations and from all nations. (Romans 12:5; Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 1:22-23; Revelation 7:9)

(Ephesians 6:10-18; Colossians 2:15; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 12:10-12 Christ Will Return and the Dead Will Be Raised Christ will return visibly. The dead will be raised. Christ will rule the world and make all things new. (Matthew 24:30; 1Cor. 15:52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 21:1-5)

What do you believe about marriage? Sexual intimacy is for marriage only. Christian marriage is a lifelong union of a man and a woman. (Genesis 2:22-25; Matthew 5:27-32; Matthew 19:3-9; 1 Corinthians 7:1-11) God Relates to Families God’s covenant addresses not only individuals but also their families.

What is your Mission?

What is your history? 

Christian Leaders Institute history began on September 11, 2001, after Henry experienced the September 11, 2001, tragedy in person. Shortly after that, Rev. Henry Reyenga Jr. started Christian Leaders NFP under the encouragement of Rich DeVos Sr. and Ron Parr, who agreed to be part of the founding board of directors. The founding mission of Christian Leaders, NFP, (DBA Christian Leaders Institute) was to raise up reproducible Christian leaders to spread Christianity everywhere. Henry and his wife Pam committed themselves to this calling and work.

The Problem

Approximately 45 million Americans are currently in college debt. Tuition is skyrocketing making higher education less and less accessible. Despite this, more than 60% of jobs in the US require a college degree. 

Balancing work and family life with education can be difficult for many Christians on top of the cost of traditional higher education. In addition, access to education can be an issue especially globally. 

Our Solution

Our solution is simply following the model of Jesus’ ministry. Jesus spent the core of his ministry educating his disciples. He taught them to become multipliers of the Gospel throughout the world. This model of education is just as important today, but is often neglected, especially at the college-level. Christian Leaders Institute believes that those who are called to be gospel-multipliers should be highly educated, but with a barrier-free education. 


How is the education funded and supported?

CLI operates on the principle of generosity and the spirit of “giving it forward”. We are tithe and offering funded, relying on the kindness of students and Christians worldwide who donate to make this opportunity universally available. 

It’s a beautiful, self-perpetuating cycle: Those who benefit from our offerings feel moved to contribute so that others may share in the experience. Their donations then enable us to continue offering our range of over 150 free Biblical courses, to inspire personal soul growth, ministry training, and ultimately, the creation of Christian leaders around the globe. In fact, over 50% of Christian Leaders budget is funded by students and alumni.

Through their contributions, donors are investing in more than a program—they are investing in lives, in futures, and in the propagation of the Word of God.

Breaking Down Barriers to Education

Christian Leaders offers over 165 college level courses and mini-courses that are 100% free and online. 

Furthermore, students can study at their own pace our correspondent style courses on any device that has access to the internet.

Christian Leaders also provides affordable programs for awards, certificates, diplomas, degrees, and an ordination path. 


What are your fee costs?

A bachelor degree program costs ONLY $3,125 with Christian Leaders 

An associate degree program costs only $1,625 

Official ordinations can be for as low as $125

Diplomas cost $100

Certificates cost $75

Awards cost $50

Also, students in countries with lower economic status receive adjusted prices for any of our credentials through grants and full-ride scholarships.

Christian Leaders Institute’s Leadership Excellence school offers all the required courses and credits needed to complete each degree program, but if you have taken any of these required courses/credits at another college, you can send your official transcript to Christian Leaders Institute for evaluation.

Christian Leaders Institute, as part of accreditation standards must ensure they have authorization to offer education and/or degrees to students who are a resident in that state. When CLI began seeking accreditation, authorization inquiries were sent out. However, authorization is something that must be regularly reviewed for an institution as state laws may change during that time. Late last year, CLI reached out again to all 50 states regarding authorization or exemption from authorization. As part of this effort, CLI discovered that some states’ authorization process costs would be cost-prohibitive for CLI and/or that some state’s authorization or exemption hinges on whether an institution has governmentally-recognized accreditation. This means that students residing in those states will be unable to enroll into the LES Admissions process, earn credit, or pursue a degree at this time. Students residing in the following states will not be eligible for admission to the LES and its degree programs at this time, but they will be eligible for enrollment at the Christian Development school and pursuit of its programs as well as pursuit of Alliance programs at the Institute: District of Columbia (cost-prohibitive), New York (cost-prohibitive), New Jersey (cost-prohibitive), Delaware (cost-prohibitive) Rhode Island (cost-prohibitive), Utah (cost-prohibitive), Kentucky (must be accredited), North Dakota (must be accredited), Nevada (must be accredited), Virginia (must be accredited), Connecticut (must be accredited), Wyoming (must have candidate status), Illinois (must be accredited), Michigan (must be accredited), Oregon (time-intensive/lengthy documentation process for authorization; CLI will seek authorization, but it will take time)*
