A Welcome from the President
In the midst of international travail, God is seeking a people who will become discipler nations, lead and not follow, lend and not borrow, be above and not underneath (Deut. 28:1-14). This will not be done out of human wisdom or strength but by the anointing and wisdom of God Himself flowing through His children. That is why God begins Deuteronomy 28 by twice saying, "If you will obey My voice...then...." So we will train you to hear the voice of God and then to apply it to the various disciplines of life in which God is calling you to demonstrate anointed leadership.
Since we have removed the sacred/secular split and believe that the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, we will train you to take applied biblical understanding as well as the voice and anointing of God into all areas of life and to demonstrate godly leadership there. I sense that God is raising up sons and daughters of Abraham who will minister in multi-gifted fashion as Abraham did. Abraham was a spiritual leader, a business leader, and a political leader, all wrapped up in one. May we learn to live in like manner. We provide for our graduates to be ordained and certified in many different vocational/ministry settings.
We invite you to become a CLU graduate!We will train you in the Lamad method of learning, the method used by the Hebrews. It is quite different from traditional Western educational models, and is explained in Section I of the catalog.
We will teach you to build a well-designed, broad-based paradigm for discovering truth based on multiple pillars. Because it is sound, it will open for you the way of understanding.
We will help you establish effective mentoring relationships and internship experiences. Upon graduation, we will assist you in discovering vocational/ministry placements through our network of contacts.
We welcome you whether you are a young student preparing for your life's work, a mid-career professional seeking a new vocation, or a mature learner who is simply adding to his or her understanding of life. Our university without walls welcomes you to learn with us. We will provide you with an outstanding education which will achieve its stated goals.
Our goal is that you be a leader by the time you graduate. We will do everything in our power to train you for leadership. Demonstrating leadership abilities will be a requirement for graduation to occur. We have carefully designed our program on the anvils of real-life accomplishments and proven that the training does work to achieve each goal we have set out to attain. Our staff will assist you in personalizing our program to meet the goals you have. You will develop your own unique program of study, practica, and internships leading to graduation.
What is a university?Webster defines a university as an institution of higher learning providing facilities for teaching and research and authorized to grant academic degrees; one made up of an undergraduate division which confers bachelor's degrees and a graduate division which comprises various master's and doctoral degrees. Christian Leadership University offers a variety of degrees from associate level to doctoral level.
Our Commission: To Train Leaders for Tomorrow!God grants to each of us an exciting vision which compels us forward into all that He has in store for our lives.
We invite you to receive and participate in the vision of Christian Leadership University. It comes from Deuteronomy 28:1-14. In these fourteen verses, God lists the covenant blessings which He has bestowed upon His children, Israel. We believe that through Jesus, these covenant blessings are also bestowed upon the Church, the New Israel. Second Corinthians 1:20 informs us, "For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him they are yes...."
Leadership is automatically transferred to those who remain optimistic.
A Leader for Christ,
Each of the reasons you originally had for homeschooling your child are intensified as you consider college. Humanism, rationalism, secularism, and hedonism run rampant on most American campuses, even Christian colleges. Why expose your child to a learning approach that will take him years to overcome (if he ever overcomes it at all)? Why not continue that quality decision to bring superior education directly into your home through books, videos, cassettes, and the internet? Let proven Christian professors help you mentor your child as he emerges into adulthood in the safety and purity of your home, rather than the bastions of humanism and rebellion which pervade most American campuses.
You chose the best, years ago. Now, why not stay with the best decision, and carry out God's mandate for PARENTS to train up their children? Perhaps God's way is best after all. We know it sounds far-fetched to our secularized minds. But most of us know that by honoring God's ways, we come out far ahead in life, regardless of how distanced from current sociological trends God's principles and ways appear. Why not continue your experiment in educating your child God's way, and prove to your society that God was right all along?
DisclaimerA degree from Christian Leadership University does not guarantee a job or ordination in any specific market or ministry. Although Christian Accreditation International accredits this degree, CLU is not listed with the U.S. Department of Education, and a CLU degree is specifically not suited for people pursuing jobs as public school teachers, state university professors, state-licensed psychologists, amongst other vocations.
The primary purposes of this degree are to help strengthen one's walk with God, and to help equip him for Christian ministry, specifically to become a Spirit-anointed leader.
Although Christian Leadership University may help in pointing one to job location services, each student is responsible to locate any job in his future. It is wise and prudent for students to check with those who are working in the field(s) they desire to work in when they graduate in order to ensure that the path they are on will be acceptable for the specific kind of job or ministry they are pursuing.
