The Mission

We want to join you in spreading the influence of Christianity!

Each Christian has a calling to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ! Each of us offers our time, talents, and treasures. If you have some treasure to offer for this cause, here are some priorities to consider in this completely privately funded higher education model. Do they align with your priorities?

Offer called ministry-minded Christians the opportunity to receive access to formal higher education!

Christian Leaders Ministries (DBA- Christian Leaders College), which includes the programs of Christian Leaders College, Christian Leaders Institute, and Christian Leaders Alliance, has developed a worldwide platform to reach every economic level. This platform gives access to free courses with smartphones, tablets, or computers. This access allows ministry-minded Christians to get free ministry training. This ministry training opens the door to potentially mobilizing millions of Christian leaders to competently and confidently minister serving the Lord as volunteers, part-time, or full-time ministers, whatever their occupation may be.

When you give to Christian Leaders Institute, your gifts speak to these values and key priorities. Christian Leaders Ministries (DBA – Christian Leaders College) is a 501 (c) 3 religious non-profit that operates on a yearly budget (See 2021 CLC Budget), is governed by our Board of Trustees, is independently audited (see 2019 audit), and submits 990’s yearly.

The Budget for 2021 is $ 1,849,902. 

Mission Priorities

Offering free Christian Leaders Training and low-cost credential programs in 180 nations. 

Technology$500,000 (27%)

The internet technology launches free ministry training. About 30% of the budget is needed to fund the work and efforts of all the programs, interfaces, and websites.

New Courses $250,000 (13.50%)

Over 100 free courses are now available. New courses are being added in 2021—courses ranging from life coaching, business, philosophy, and ministry.

Material and Product Development – $150,000 (8.2%)

Christian Leaders Ministries offers branded products and materials that support leaders and ministry training.

Student Services – $100,000 (5.5%)

Many students need customer service help. We have dedicated staff who are raising up volunteers to help.

International Languages – $300,000 (16.50%)

Our funding priorities at this time are Russian, Ukrainian, Chinese, Spanish, and French. Russian and Ukrainian languages are our main focus, but all the languages are being developed.

We offer ministry training access in Spanish, Russian, French, Chinese, and Ukrainian. 

Restorative Justice – $75,000 (4%)

New and exciting opportunities are being explored with the Michigan Department of Corrections. We hope to develop a proof of concept program in 2021. This program is to offer training in Michigan prisons.

Fundraising costs – $100,000 (5.5%)

Christian Leaders College has been accepted into applicant status to be recognized as accredited by the United States Department of Education. Students are pursuing degrees. Students can take their bachelor-degrees and apply at partner colleges and universities that are fully accredited.

The administration fee for the transferable college bachelor’s is only $2,650 for a Bachelor’s Degree in developed nations like the United States. The fee for developing nations is less depending on the nation. For instance, in Nigeria, the full college fee is $240.

We also have a fund that grants “Pool of Bethesda” scholarships to cover the low fees for those who cannot afford them. If you are interested in giving for a student who cannot afford the Christian Leaders College administration fees, click here to the Pool of Bethesda page.

Graduates have options. Graduates can apply to our accredited master program partners. Click here to see a sample of one of our partners. In this sample, students have access to a $15,000 Master’s degree from Ohio University.

We believe a degree at Christian Leaders College will ground master degree bound students to excel at their academics while staying focused on serving as ministers or in whatever their occupation.
