Doctor of Divinity Online Degree

Prepare to minister as Jesus did, always out of the divine initiative He followed by seeing and hearing His Father!


Are you satisfied with a Divinity Doctorate program that merely has “a Christian perspective,” or does your heart hunger for the ability to hear His voice speak directly to your heart?


Are you looking for a radically different Divinity Doctoral Degree program?

If so, then a Doctorate Degree in Divinity from Christian Leadership University is exactly what you’ve been searching for.

You have been a willing servant of the Lord for an admirable portion of your life. You’ve led when you felt called to lead, and selflessly served whenever a need arose. You have cared for the broken, and helped to raise up leaders for the Kingdom of God.

Now…finally, your lifetime of ministry deserves to be recognized.


A Doctorate in Divinity that’s worth far more than the paper it’s printed on

We believe that experiential knowledge is infinitely more valuable than detached book learning. All the head knowledge in the world will do you little good if you can’t make it work in the real world. That’s why every step of the way you will be applying what you learn. Each of our online theology courses, online Bible courses and online ministry courses are refreshingly practical, and will guide you step-by-step through the processes and techniques that are used.

You’ve already earned your degree

The years you’ve labored and the lives you’ve touched all bear witness to your level of commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ. Now you can authenticate and document your distinguished life of ministry by obtaining your Doctor of Divinity Degree. You are much closer to your degree than you may realize. Bring in up to 50% of your degree through the combination of transcripts from other colleges and a Life Experience Portfolio. Leverage your past studies and experiences to earn your Doctor of Divinity in less time that you ever thought possible!

Hone your ability to hear the voice of God

Certainly you are no stranger to hearing that “still, small voice.” You’ve felt the call of God on your life to enter into the Ministry, and you’ve sensed His gentle guidance as you endeavored to follow His perfect will for your life. But have you ever wished you could focus in on His voice more accurately? Do you find yourself hungering to hear from your Heavenly Father on a more consistent basis, and wishing you could be 100% confident that it was actually Him?

Stop hungering and start partaking

That’s what Christian Leadership University is all about! The fundamental basis of everything we teach is the ability to effortlessly and consistently hear the voice of God. The course Communion With God will solidify your ability to discern His voice, and remove all doubt and uncertainty. You will become skilled at immediately recognizing and “tuning in to frequency,” so you can “tune out” the rest of the world.

Share the gift of God’s voice

Once you are thoroughly comfortable experiencing your daily conversations with Jesus, you will then naturally have a burning desire to share this ability with those around you whose lives you touch. What better gift could you possibly give them? Spread the word and bring an ever-increasing number of God’s children into the continual, life-altering, beautiful communication that is His heart’s desire.
