What is CLI?
Cultivate Leadership Institute is a leadership certificate program that is designed to help you grow in your leadership capacity, influence and spiritual maturity through online settings, group discussions, online assignments, community and more!
We equip individuals to become mature and healthy leaders through instruction, training, and guidance.
We exist to cultivate the purpose and passion for leadership that God has placed in each student.
"Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ." Ephesians 4:11-13 NLT
