Welcome to Christian Leadership Institute (CLI)! ( Introduction to CLI )
CLI is an independent Christian institute not affiliated with any specific church or denomination. It was officially registered as a non-profit corporation with the Federal Government in the United States of America and the State of Californiaon on July 1, 2005. Currently it is operating in California and 3 Asian branch centers.
CLI was established in response to God's calling to equip Christian leaders to better serve local and overseas Chinese churches. We strive to use theological education as a channel to reach out to a much greater mission field. We are unique in our two-winged vision which emphasizes parallel ministries in North America and Asia, as well as parallel focuses on Biblical and Practical Theology.
In implementing this vision, we offer educational programs for pastors, church leaders and laymen of all ages and all walks of life. In Asia, in particular, most of the students are young leaders from urban and rural areas. CLI bears all the financial cost to provide them quality theological education as well as leadership and counseling skills training. The goal is to enable them to be better equipped to serve the vast mission field as church planters, trainers, pastors, and ministry leaders.
Even with very limited resources, CLI continues to look to God for guidance to identify strategic locations for additional branch centers so that more people can be reached, especially in Asia while the door is still open.
We appreciate your visit. Please get to know us and support us in our ministry to further the work of the Kingdom of God.
Praise the Lord. CLI has become formally accredited member of Asia Theological Association. We will continue to carry out the vision of "mission through theological education."
Praise the Lord for His blessings upon CLI and its students. In June 13 students received their degrees: 4 with Doctor of Ministry, 3 Master of Divinity, 4 Master of Christian Studies, and 2 Diploma of Christian Studies.
