Your Restorative Justice Calling Ignited!

Are you called to serve God as a restorative justice leader? Maybe you are ordained as a Deacon Minister, and you are called to serve in the area of restorative justice. Maybe you are on your way to serve as a Restored Life Minister, Assistant Chaplain, or Chaplain through Christian Leaders Alliance. As a graduate of Christian Leaders Institute, you value the ministry training you received. You are excited about your Deacon Minister Ordination. You are motivated and called to serve in your local community helping those with criminal records launch into restoration.

The Ignite Restoration website is an online forum and resource for ordained leaders with Christian Leaders Alliance that have been trained at Christian Leaders Institute. This Ignite Restoration website will include an international directory of ordained leaders and ministries from those in the Christian Leaders Institute trained family.

Ignite Restoration Features

As an ordained leader at Christian Leaders Alliance, you have access to all the resources of Christian Leaders Institute as you serve in your restorative justice calling.

The Christian Leaders Institute program of education is a tool for further preparation and training for your calling.

Here are some of the resources that have been put together for advancing your restorative justice impact:

Endorsement and encouragement by the Michigan Department of Corrections: The staff of the Michigan Department of Corrections envisioned an educational program that CLI offers for those on parole or on probation. Your local ministry can build on that recommendation. You or your ministry can become mentors for people who are seeking the New Life Card.

The Michigan Department of Corrections envisioned this program as an option for judges, parole boards, and other justice authorities to offer this study program opportunity as a condition of probation. Christian Leaders Institute saw this as an opportunity to help.

Free College-Level Classes: As a local restorative justice leader, you can help those who want to walk a new path to get a high-quality education. There is a free getting started class that establishes whether someone is ready for college-level study. No high school degree is required for admittance. If someone finishes this class, they show they have the motivation and ability to take more training at CLI. Share this link with someone you are helping.

As you help local justice individuals, you can help them take classes that will address their greatest needs and keep them walking on a good path. You may mentor them to take and complete this class:

  • Restoring Relationships – Transforming Justice (3 Credits)
    • This class is produced by Christian attorney and president Brian DeCook. This class gives laser beam focus on the topic of offense and how to launch into a peace-filled restored life for the individual and as much as possible in every relationship. This class addresses the need for previous relationships to be restored.

This will allow them to begin their quest for the New Life Card.

Maybe you are part of a ministry that wants to become a provider of the New Life Card. Christian Leaders Institute will brand your ministry on the New Life Card for the justice individuals you help.

You can also mentor justice-involved people to take more classes. Maybe help them get a Bachelor Degree at Christian Leaders Institute.

Christian Leaders Institute is working on developing more classes in the restorative justice area. A growing number of courses specializing in restorative justice topics will come online as funding continues to grow in this exciting program.

Are you someone who wants to start a local Restorative Justice Ministry? Christian Leaders Institute is working on courses that will be helpful for you to start a new work. Some of the enterprise classes, as well as some ministry classes, will already aid you.

Maybe you want to get your bachelor degree? Outstanding. Over 180 credit hours of high-quality free classes are offered at Christian Leaders Institute to you as well. Classes in Ministry, Enterprise, and Christain Philosophy are available.


This Ignite Restoration website will provide a directory for ordained leaders of the Christian Leaders Alliance. We will feature these categories at this time:

This category also includes those who serve in the role of Restored Life Ministers, Chaplains, and Associate Chaplains through Christian Leaders Alliance.

Restorative Justice Ministries will be a registry for our ordained graduates who work with restorative justice ministries, whether they started the ministry or not.

Shared Stories: This Ignite Restoration site will share blogs and stories of those restored to inspire others. Christian Leaders Institute has already been blessed with many who have been redeemed and are studying ministry at CLI. We will feature some of these stories as well.
