Has God Called You Into Ministry?

Has God called you into ministry? Are you interested in connecting people to God as He is revealed in the Bible?  Are you interested in bringing revival to your nation? Do you want to be part of a team that spreads Christianity everywhere?  Do you have a calling to help?

People are looking for hope! So let’s invite God to heal us and our planet!

If God has called you to minister, what does that mean? You will need ministry training appropriate to your specific calling. Maybe you are called to be a minister in a specific area like men’s or women’s ministry? Maybe you are called to perform Christian marriage ceremonies? Maybe you are called to be a life coach minister who will open a part-time or full-time ministry practice. Maybe you are called to plant a church or house church? Maybe you do not know where you will fit yet.

Has God called you into ministry?

Maybe you will need to explore what He wants you to do. When someone is called into ministry three questions usually come up?

  1. How much time will it take to get trained to be competent in my calling?
  2. Is there a training program appropriate for me to be confident in my calling?
  3. Will I receive the credibility I need to be taken seriously in my community?

Christian ministers are needed. Christian Leaders Institute offers free formal ministry training for volunteer (lay), part-time and full-time ministers. The programs offered at Christian Leaders Institute range from programs that can be completed in less than one month to programs that will take 3-4 years.

For the Volunteer (Lay) Minister

Some of these programs are suited for Christian leaders who have a bi-vocational calling. Maybe you only have a few hours a week available to minister in your local church or community? Maybe you are interested in a specific role such as a Christian Wedding Officiant? You have little available time for training.

Christian Leaders Institute is your gateway to ministry skills courses and mini-courses. You can use those courses and mini-courses to become a commended minister with the Christian Leaders Alliance.

For the Part-time Ministers

These programs are suited for Christian leaders who are looking for part-time vocations. Maybe you want to apply for a part-time ministry job at your church? You are a stay-at-home mom, for instance, and you already have finished your formal schooling. Your local church hires part-time ministers who have the ministry training and credentials to fill specific roles.

Christian Leaders Institue is your gateway to courses and programs that will give you the confidence and credibility to apply for those positions. You can also become licensed or ordained with the Christian Leaders Alliance.

For Full-time Ministers

These programs are suited for those who are called to be in ministry full-time. Maybe you are going to change careers, and you know you are called to give yourself full-time to ministry. You know you need a Bachelor degree in ministry or divinity sciences. You may even need to transfer to a Master degree program.

Christian Leaders Institute is your gateway for those called to full-time ministry. Christian Leaders Institute is part of Cristian Leaders College which offers low-cost Associate or Bachelor degree programs. If you need a master degree you can transfer to one of our Accredited Master degree schools that welcome CLI’s Leadership Excellence School graduates.

CLI’s Leadership Excellence School students have access to all the minister credential programs of Christian Leader Alliance including Commended, Licensed, or Ordained Minister status recognition.

The key question is: Has God called you into ministry? If he has called you, the Christian Leaders institute can help you take your next step.
