  • Submit Two Recommendations or have Level Two Endorsement

    The Coaching Minister (Life Coach Minister) is a clergy status certification at Christian Leaders Alliance. While we can observe your academic readiness for becoming a Coaching Minister, we need to have your calling confirmed by those who know you. We ask for at least two endorsements. 

    You must obtain 2 letters of recommendation from someone who has observed your Christian character. They can be from:

    • A ministry leader or a Mentor Minister
    • Your spouse or a friend if unmarried
    • A non-family member that knows you and respects you. 

    These two endorsements are essential for your credibility as a Coaching Minister.

  • An updated CLI profile

    Your profile is vitally important in ministry. People really do look you up. If your profile is vital, you open doors. Many people do not take their profile seriously and this hurts their impact. Take time to update your profile and add a piece about your Life Coaching calling. 

    • Your Coaching Minister Story

    • Comprehensive Coaching Minister Final Exams

       Comprehensive Exam questions will be taken from the Life Coaching Ministry Class and this Certification Class.
