Supported Model

Imagine a world where ministry training is accessible to all, regardless of financial constraints. This is the vision behind Christian Leaders Institute’s generosity-driven model, an innovative approach to education that empowers individuals to embark on a journey of ministry training without the burden of financial barriers.

CLI revolutionizes ministry education by offering free, top-quality training online. Traditional formal ministry training often comes with a hefty price tag, rendering it out of reach for many aspiring leaders. But CLI changes the game. Our free ministry classes provide a remarkable opportunity for anyone with a calling to study and grow.


Supporting this groundbreaking model are foundations, churches, and individuals who recognize the transformative impact of accessible education. However, the uniqueness of this model doesn’t stop there. CLI students and graduates are also active participants in this virtuous cycle of giving. As Vision Partners, they play a vital role in ensuring that CLI remains not only free but also effective, available, and sustainable. In fact, over 50% of Christian Leaders’ budget is supported by student givers.

CLI’s core mission is to equip leaders for revival, particularly those who may never receive a formal salary for their work—often known as bi-vocational leaders. Astonishingly, a vast majority of people worldwide lack access to high-quality higher education due to financial constraints. CLI is here to change that narrative. Say goodbye to student debt and delaying your calling. Instead, embrace a world of new opportunities for preparation and growth.
