While our training is entirely online, we are distinct from “instant ordination” programs. Instead, we’re a global minister credentialing society, comprising thousands of ordained ministers. Our strength lies in connecting comprehensive ministry courses from the Christian Leaders Institute with local endorsements, culminating in a process that validates your ministry calling.

You are then free to embark on the corresponding courses, all of which are 100% online and entirely free.

Upon successful completion of your chosen curriculum, you can order a tangible version of your credential. Depending on the nature of the credential and any additional materials you opt for, prices can range from $62.50 to $300. This fee is a one-off payment. Rest assured, you will not be burdened with the obligation to renew your ordination, nor will you encounter any hidden or recurring fees.
