We offer 165+ free online Christian courses covering a variety of topics, including ministry, theology, Bible studies, practical life skills, philosophy, business, general education, and more. 

Awards are the initial credentials that can be earned and require a lesser number of completed courses in a particular subject. Certificates are more advanced than awards, as they necessitate the completion of a greater number of courses in a specific subject or field. Diplomas are the most advanced credentials, demanding the completion of even more courses in a particular area of study.

Christian Leaders Alliance provides lay, licensed, and ordained ministerial credentials for individuals serving as volunteer, part-time, or full-time ministers.

Christian Leaders Institute provides this Verification Class for students interested in seeking to transfer Institute credit to an accredited partner institution (there are more limited transfer options for the Institute than for College-accepted students, so unless there is a reason a student is unable to pursue College admittance, the Institute suggests that most transfer-seeking students apply to the College as soon as possible).
