What Is Free & What Has Fees?

Christian Leaders Institute is primarily supported by the generosity of students, churches, and Christian organizations & individuals. Learn more about this model here. While all courses can be taken for 100% free, CLI also has program-specific fees. Like any donation to CLI, these fees are invested back into our vision of free Christian education for those who need it most.

"There are so many things I love about Christian Leaders, free training for ministry for those who need it to be. College level education at a fraction of the cost I would be paying elsewhere."
"God has provided you with free, high quality biblical training, without requiring you to pay the normal fees you'd otherwise have to pay at other colleges. Anyone would have to be foolish not to take advantage of this training! God has brought you to where you... Now TRUST Him and follow His guidance in your journey!"
"The Institute is a great place for to study. There programs are well tailored to be understood by any serious minded student. The instructors and professors are gifted individuals in their areas of specialties. Lastly, their free tuition programs are second to none."
"It is a blessing to be able to take these courses free or at low cost and also be part of the giving process to help others do the same. I am currently retired and this affords me the financial ability and time to fulfill God's calling at this stage of my life. Go for it!"
You won't find another place where you can study high-quality Bible and Ministry courses online for free at your own pace with the option to receive different credentials, certificates, diplomas, and even degrees which are affordable. It is a big blessing to be a student at CLI.
One cannot find a better price, and the options to use the knowledge are varying. The ability to transfer the courses into a degree is another great benefit of this training. One body, many parts.
CLI is an amazing blessing for me. It has provided a high quality education at minimal cost. The professors are top notch and the information is invaluable! If you have any type of calling CLI will develop it and help you expand your Kingdom impact for God!
