Christian Leaders College Chaplaincy Degrees

Christian Leaders College offers a strong option for those entering into Chaplaincy. The Program is designed to give a comprehensive understanding of the cognitive topics needed for effective Chaplaincy. There is an ever-increasing need for both ministry and vocational ordained chaplains. Note: Four advanced classes are being completed for this degree at Christian Leaders Institute. Students can start taking classes, but the actual degree will not be awarded until those classes are complete.

The Christian Leaders College Chaplaincy study program goes beyond many Bible Colleges because it includes many subjects not covered at traditional institutions.

Many Ordained Christian Leaders College graduates now occupy both ministry and vocational chaplaincy positions (students may choose to pursue the Chaplain Minister Ordination upon completion of the Bachelor in Chaplaincy Degree) .
