Outcomes Academy Online Winter 2016
It’s time for the Outcomes Academy-Online Winter 2016 session.
As America’s premier educator of Christian nonprofit leaders, Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) offers training that is practical, biblically-based and cutting edge. And to enhance the educational and collaborative opportunities for leaders, CLA offers that training both online and at its national Outcomes conference.
The Outcomes Academy is CLA’s most in-depth professional learning experience. These modules/courses are designed to equip Christian leaders for excellence, and offer proven insights that will advance the organizations those leaders serve as well. You can experience the Outcomes Academy– Online and at the annual Outcomes Conference. Both experiences contribute to a leader earning his or her Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) status. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow in excellence as a nonprofit leader.
