THE CREDENTIALED CHRISTIAN NONPROFIT LEADER PROGRAM
The Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) program is designed to promote biblical principles and professional standards in Christian nonprofit organizations. This program exists because Christian nonprofits need leaders who have proven expertise and certified excellence in their professional fields.
Those who receive the CCNL credential will possess a proven multi-disciplinary understanding of nonprofit leadership. Training traverses all the critical areas of professional practice: executive leadership, resource development, financial management, tax and legal, board governance, people management and care, marketing and communication, and Internet and technology.
Christian Leadership Alliance is pleased to announce the CCNL Credential now earns academic credit towards a Master of Arts program in Organizational Leadership through York College Online.
