Associate of Christian Leadership Alumni Testimonies: 

"The Associate of Christian Leadership degree was perfect for me as I desire to work in para-church ministries and more behind the scenes in my local church.

The Associate of Christian Leadership degree has provided a solid theological foundation for me to both continue growing in my faith and to continue pursuing further studies. The studies have also helped me to become a better admin for a group I am involved with on Facebook, Reformed Christian Teaching. Thanks to my studies, I now have the confidence to teach and engage in discussion with others more. I also manage my own personal ministry, Six-Twelve Ministries, where I am now trying to help others understand the biblical truth about the paranormal. I volunteer in my church on the media ministry team as well as volunteer for outreach programs. In all these areas I have seen growth and application from my studies here at CLI.

Now that I have graduated with this degree, I am not stopping here. My hunger to grow in theological understanding and my hunger to know God and His Word have only grown more and more. I plan to pursue my Bachelor of Christian Leadership next, with a concentration in Advanced Biblical Studies." - Daniel M. 

"In my viewpoint, this completion of the Associate of Christian Leadership Degree is considered the beginning of many more achievements we can get at CLC. I’d like to cite three points. First of all, It is a trigger, and encouragement for my personal growth and among church members. Secondly, the degree is also a dedication to my father and all God’s servants. Most secular academicians despise theological studies. The accredited degree serves as testimony for those who despise theological studies. It is also a symbol to valorize the devotion and courage of all vision partners who have contributed closely and remotely to the completion of this degree.  Thirdly, this degree program will serve as the tangible proof to sensitize church Leaders to deepen their knowledge and get armed for God’s service." - Zabulon N.

Bachelor of Christian Leadership Alumni Testimonies: 

"I chose the Bachelor of Leadership track since my understanding of “full-time” ministry work had developed to the place where I no longer viewed ministry as the exclusive domain of the clergy. Rather that everything we are engaged in, is service to the Lord Jesus and kingdom. Whether I worked in sales support in the insurance industry in London, as a Computer Hardware  Operations Team Leader in Barcelona, Spain, managed commercial aspects for Oil & Gas construction in Cape Town, South Africa, or taught English as a Foreign Language online, all are part of serving “full-time”. The Leadership degree has further empowered me with knowledge, attitudes and tools to turn my workspace into an area for kingdom advancement." - Richard S. 

"My preparation as a student at Christian Leaders College has helped facilitate communication with classmates of many nationalities and backgrounds. I gained knowledge on how to inspire people to follow our father's example of worship and love." - Miltesha Bryant

"At Christian Leaders College I have learned how to love and care for all types of people, grow with others, encourage others, and what it means to put others before myself. Christian Leaders College has taught me to put God as the center of everything I do. All that I have learned in the Bachelor of Christian Leadership has had a positive impact on my life and the lives of those around me presently and for the future because I have learned how to impact others in a positive way and find joy in serving others and Jesus Christ.  With the education I have received I look forward to becoming a Christian teacher and becoming involved in hospice ministry." - Melissa H.
