Graduate Endorsements

“I believe in Christian Leader Institute for many reasons. I have attended Moody Bible College and I was surprised to find the curriculum at CLI to be just as challenging if not more so…for those who are not believers in free ministry training I challenge you to take a course or two and compare that with a regular university, and you will surprised.”

Horace DobsonGraduate

“The classes here at CLI have been phenomenal, quality courses that are designed to “teach all nations”. The instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and passionate about their responsibility to deliver their courses. I have gained a deeper appreciation for those who’ve gone before me and laid the groundwork for spreading the gospel throughout the world.”
