Philosophy of Ministry

Our Vision

Christian Leaders College seeks to bring confidence and credibility to those who study the free college-level courses.

Our Mission: Launch Debt-free Christian Leaders. 

Christian Leaders College seeks to reach the volunteer, part-time, or career Christian leaders who often come from lower economic spheres. Many are leaders with disabilities, justice individuals, and internationals. Often older or retired adults on fixed income need a study program that fits a tight budget. Some of our reaches include those who want credit and credibility in ministry training for use of their gifts as volunteers or part-time clergy members. Many students have college debt already in another area of study, and Christian Leaders College offers them a program that includes free courses and low-cost credentials.

Using the higher-education courses and applying the academic standards of accredited education, Christian Leaders College seeks to keep students in our target group free of college debt.

Our mission also includes helping a portion of our students go on further to Master Degree studies with partnering master degree program providers such as Ohio Christian University
