Just a few words about the experience
CLA’s online learning program is the best venue to educate, equip and engage working professionals. The discussion times, best practices and rich content allows each participant to grow deeper in their knowledge, as well as leadership experience. All information is underscored by the Word of God, which encourages the right decision-making based on biblical truths and principles.
Cary E. Vaughn, CCNL, CEO/President, Love Worth Finding Ministries
The resource development courses that I took not only gave me the tools to use, but also the desire to take my fundraising to a new level. Learning the biblical principles of fundraising was invaluable! I now live my life in His service and rely totally on Him for the increase!
Terri Lipscomb, Director of Fundraising Development, Living Alternative Pregnancy Resource Center
Taking courses from CLA has been a wonderful way to meet requirements of the CCNL certification. More importantly, from the two courses I have taken – Biblical Foundations of Governance and Biblical Foundations of Christian Development Work – the learning has been directly applicable to my ministry/profession, relevant subject matter, great instructors, and the interaction with other participants amplifies learning.
