Diplomas

Christian Leaders Institute offers an expanding range of Diploma credentials.  At CLI, the courses and unofficial credentials are completely free. If you need an official credential, we do have fees to cover the additional cost and administrative work needed to verify, prepare, and send the official credential. We must have this verification process as part of our accreditation standards. You can buy an official Diploma credential. The official credential will come with the seal of Christian Leaders Institute.

Currently, Christian Leaders Institute offers three areas of Diploma study. We call these areas, Tracks. They are:
