Soul Centers are places where people are connected to Christian Ministry.  Soul Centers are Christian church-religious societies of different sizes and purposes.

Soul Centers include traditional religious gatherings like local churches but include fellowships, ministries, and ministry practices.

Soul Centers are religious societies registered with the Christian Leaders Alliance (denomination). Soul Centers are registered by credentialed officiants and ministers of the Christian Leaders Alliance, found in the Christian Leaders Minister Directory.

Soul centers are Christian religious societies serving local communities or relational circles of influence. The leaders of the soul centers agree to a Christian Leaders Alliance Statement of faith. They also agree to abide by the expectations of the Soul Center Handbook.

Types of Soul Centers

The different types of Soul Centers reflect our credentialed ministers’ gifts, training, and calling. These leaders are encouraged to register their local religious society (church). Each kind of registered Soul Center is affiliated with the Christian Leaders Alliance as a manifestation of a Christian church community.

Fellowships – Fellowships led by a credentialed minister of the Christian Leaders Alliance are typically smaller ministries. These smaller ministries are led by volunteer ministers called by the Lord to minister to people within their circles of influence. Jesus said that where two or three are gathered in His name, He is there (Matthew 18:20). Fellowship Soul Centers encompass a broad spectrum of Christian activity, from Bible studies to prayer groups, from evangelism to serving the homeless, from chaplain ministry to local first-responders, and to conducting a wedding for a friend or family member.

Wedding Officiant Ministries –  This is a specialized marriage ministry for credentialed ministers who officiate weddings as part of an ongoing ministry, as opposed to a credentialed officiant who intends to conduct a wedding for a friend or family member. The wedding officiant Soul Center ministry is about bringing couples together. Credentialed officiants and ministers can encourage newly married couples to begin a walk with God in their marriage.

Ministry Practices –  A ministry practice might be a Coaching Minister Practice, Prayer Practice, Visitation Practice, Matchmaker Ministry, or MinistryBiz. These can be located at a local church, home, or storefront. Some of these practices may be led by volunteer credentialed ministers, others by part-time ministers. A MinistryBiz is another example of a ministry practice Soul Center.

Churches and House Churches – Local churches or house churches that meet regularly for worship services and support of home discipleship practices are traditional Soul Centers. A local church or a house church qualifies as a CLA Church Soul Center if a credentialed Christian Leaders Alliance member initiates the Soul Center registration and the local church leadership agrees to the arrangement.

Ministries or MinistryBiz Organizational –  These soul centers are local or web-based ministries that serve communities and support a reproducible walk with God. Credentialed ministers of the Christian Leaders Alliance may start a ministry that identifies as a Ministry Soul Center.
