CLU is truly touching the world with our messages of spiritual intimacy and how to live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

CLU began in 1994 and God has blessed us with over 10,000 students in 127 nations.


CLU is different. I invite you to take a look at one of the most creative universities in the world. When God called us to build CLU, He gave us a mandate to make it different from other schools so it could fulfill the desires and aspirations that so many have. Let me briefly introduce you to some of these unique features.

More Bible!

Success is directly related to your knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God (Josh. 1:8; Ps. 1). To discover if you need more Bible training we have created free online, self-scoring quizzes which correspond to our eight Through the Bible classes. If you don’t score well on any of these quizzes, you realize it would be in your best interest to take the corresponding Bible course, thus ensuring your success in life. The Old Testament is covered in five courses and the New Testament in three courses.


More Spirit!

It wasn’t until I left college that I discovered the importance of praying Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1:18, “I pray that the eyes of your heart be enlightened….”  I had never prayed this prayer while in Bible college so what I received there was head knowledge and not heart revelation. I actually did not know how to hear God’s voice, or let Him reveal wisdom, comfort and guidance to me on a daily basis. I knew the Bible said, “My sheep hear My voice” (Jn. 10:27), but I could not identify the voice of God in my heart or mind.

It was five years

after I left Bible college that I finally took a year of my life to focus exclusively on how to hear God’s voice. That year I experienced my spiritual breakthrough and I discovered His voice was easy enough for children to hear also. We make learning this skill of hearing God’s voice the foundational training module which every CLU student takes. This course, Communion With God, prepares you to participate in revelation-based learning for the rest of your college career and beyond. Jesus was effective because He only did what He heard and saw His Father doing (Jn. 5:19,20,30). You, too, will become effective and anointed by following Christ’s pattern.

Delight-Centered Learning!

We encourage you to take courses in areas which interest you and which God is calling you to master. This we call delight-centered learning, where you are following the call and passions of your heart. Rather than CLU forcing you to take a standard series of courses, and making you fit into our mold, we let you begin with your heart’s passions and we help you discover the best course(s) to fulfill those desires. You are welcome to contact our offices anytime for input and consultation on which of our 100+ courses or 50+ degree programs will best meet your life’s needs.

A Biblical Epistemology!

We will teach you to build a well-designed, broad-based paradigm for discovering truth based on multiple ways of receiving God’s guidance. Because it is sound, it will open for you the path of wisdom, revelation and understanding, allowing you to make wise decisions on your walk through life.

Real Life Learning!

Our courses have been born from real life struggles which gave birth to real life answers which have proven successful. The answers we offer in these classes are precise, definable and transferable, and provide simple, applicable, revelation-based steps for implementation. Every course was born on the anvils of life and has demonstrated relevant and meaningful answers that actually work as you apply them in your home, career and ministry.

You will be blown away! We invite you to try our first course, Communion With God, and see if you don’t agree that we have achieved the goals stated above. Others have, and their heart-felt wonder at what they have experienced is recorded here in their testimonies. I believe if you read them, you will become convinced you should give CLU a try. See if your heart does not leap with joy at what you are experiencing. If it does, you know you have found the right school for you.
