About Us
Vision & Mission



Our Organization
CLI is governed by the Board of Directors. It also has an advisory committee of pastors, teachers and business people who provide educational, operational and spiritual advices.

The executive office consists of Acting President William Sun, and Operating Officer James Hwang. The Acting President also assumes the responsibilities of Academic Dean overseeing Asian and North American programs.

Under the executive officers are Director of Administration, Doctor of Ministry Program Director, Director of CLI Asia Branch, Dean of Student Affairs, Librarian, and various committees.

Our Faculty and Staff
CLI has a strong and broad-based faculty team which covers the full spectrum of theological courses in New Testament, Old Testament, Theology, Church History, Mission, and Practical Theology. These teachers are not only well-qualified in their respective area of studies, but also well recognized for their good teaching skills that inspire the students to continue with theological education. The faculty also serves as spiritual mentors to the students as they model the life of a servant leader, with integrity and pastoral heart.

CLI has a small team of paid staff and volunteers. The team works tirelessly to support faculty and students, and manage all the administrative work of the Institute.

Our Education Programs
Currently CLI offers the following degree programs:
  • Doctor of Ministry (North America and Hong Kong)
  • Master of Theology (North America)
  • Master of Divinity (North America)
  • Master of Christian Studies (North America and Asia)
  • Diploma of Christian Studies (North America)
We strive to offer a rich, balanced and holistic curriculum which not only provides students with a solid foundation in the Christian faith and equip them with the leadership and counseling skills, but also shape them into the vessel suitable for the Kingdom of God.

Our Publication Ministry
CLI has embarked on developing publication ministry to publish books on biblical-theological-practical topics. CLI already published in 2014 the "Marketplace Ministry: Challenge and Practice" book compiling the lectures given by CLI teachers and invited guests on the topic. A book on counseling, "Christian Counseling that Changes Life" with 12 CLI teachers contributing articles on the topic, was released in September 2015 and is now on the second print. This is one of the ways we reach out and serve more people in the Christian community, not just our students.

“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."
It is the vision of Christian Leadership Institute to train and send out workers to bring in the Lord’s harvest.
