Restorative Ministry News

Many graduates of Christian Leaders Institute are trained to do restorative justice ministry. These graduate have access to over 180 credits of possible instruction in areas of ministry, enterprise, and core college subjects. Some of the classes specifically address the needs of former offenders.

CLI students learn the cognitive insights online. They are also encouraged by mentors in their community. Often those in justice ministry must have a job or business to support their ministry. Like the Apostle Paul of old, these leaders are tentmaking ministers.

The programs at Christian Leaders Institute include many classes for those called to ministry with offenders and ex-offenders.  One goal of the restorative ministry program at Christian Leaders Institute is to prepare Christian leaders to thrive in justice ministry.

Christian Leaders Institute is also committed to igniting restoration in the lives of those who have offended God and societies.

We believe in the power of God to change lives. We believe that with God’s transforming help and high-quality ministry and enterprise training, many of these formerly broken people will become effective Christian leaders in business, churches, and communities.
