About CLA Minister Credentialing OpportunitiesThe Christian Leaders Alliance (CLA) is a global religious organization that credentials ministers from various Christian backgrounds, whether volunteers, part-time or full-time.
In addition to CLA credentials, ministers can maintain credentials with another religious denomination, allowing dual affiliations.
Our network comprises thousands of officiants and ministers, including field, licensed, ordained, Chaplain, or coaching ministers. See Minister Directory
Christian Leaders Alliance has a biblically rooted ordination program that has been used to train and raise thousands of Christian leaders around the globe. We pair high-quality ministry training with the power of local ordination. You must submit appropriate endorsements, up to three of them, depending on the minister role you are pursuing.
Once you have completed the required training and submitted your recommendations, you can order a physical copy of your credential and have it shipped to your doorstep. The price varies per credential and what you decide you would like to include with your order. It can range anywhere from $62.50 – $300.
