Christian Leaders for Small Churches

Christian Leaders College serves those called to volunteer, vocational, or bi-vocational ministry. According to David A. Roozen of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, the average size church in the United States is under 100 people. Churches of this size need well trained bi-vocational ministry leaders. It is optimal that ministry leaders called to serve these churches not have substantial college debt.

Many small congregations are willing and able to support a pastor on a part-time basis. Bi-vocational ministers fit this role perfectly. More trained Christian leaders are needed.
