Ministry Apprentice Awards

Do you know you are called to ministry? Do you seek confidence and competence in that calling? Do you want the confidence ministry apprentice awards will give you?

We use the word “apprentice” because you will be taking ministry role classes early in your study program. You will also receive your first award in your area of interest sooner.

Who knows? You might soar in ministry and plant a church as you are doing your studies at this apprentice level! The possibilities are endless! Local pastors and ministry leaders will also see that you are seriously discerning your calling because you are taking action to prepare for ministry.

Features and Benefits of the Ministry Apprentice Awards.

  1. Fast Track practical awards – Most Apprentice programs take a substantially smaller amount of studies. The studies you do complete get you right into your interest area.
  2. License or Ordination options available with the Christian Leaders Alliance. Some apprentice programs offer a licensure option like the Licenced Christian Wedding Officiant. The Deacon minister ordination is a good fit at this award level at Christian Leaders Alliance.
  3. Licensed or Ordained Christian Leaders will be listed in the Christian Leaders Alliance directory.
  4. Each ministry apprentice award will zero in on your interest areas after you complete the getting started class.
  5. All ministry apprentice awards require between 3 and 19 credits of study.
  6. Most ministry training classes in this award level can be used for collegiate credentials at Christian Leaders College if the apprentice award level lights a fire in you for further studies.
  7. Serve your local church by offering your gifts in your interest area to your pastor or staff. This could open a new door of mentorship for you.
  8. These ministry apprentice awards are appropriate for volunteering. Bring your award to your local ministry leaders and you will stand out as someone serious about serving with them in the work of the Lord.
  9. At the Christian Leaders Institute, you are able to continue to study and go as far as you need. Eventually, if you want to,  you can get your bachelor degree at Christian Leaders College.

How does this work?

Step OneEnroll in the Getting Started Orientation Class.

This orientation class takes only a couple of hours, but it introduces you to the Christian Leaders Institute. You meet some of the leaders and you get vital information. After you get through this class, you are ready to study ministry.

Step Two: Complete the Christian Leaders Connection Class (3 Credits) 

This class is a core mission credential ministry training class that launches you into a vital and reproducible ministry walk with God. This class has lectures, readings, and quizzes. In this class only, you will be able to take those quizzes again as you get the feel of Christian Leaders Institute. This class can be completed in about 8-20 hours. You will get your first award, The Christian Connection Award.

Step Three: Find the Credential panel and begin taking classes that fit your interest. Ministry apprentice awards will appear on that panel. 

We are adding more and more awards to the Ministry Apprentice Tracks all the time as more free courses are supported by vision partners and are completed by the top professors that we recruit. Here is the list of Minister Apprentice Awards we currently offer.
