Soul Centers are registered places of ministry with local religious societies (different local size churches) for credentialed Christian Leaders Alliance (denomination) ministers.

As a global religious society or denomination, Christian Leaders Alliance is an ecuministry organization serving Alliance members in ministry. An ecuministry religious organization allows its credentialed ministers to hold dual minister credentials. For example, someone can be ordained or licensed with the Christian Leaders Alliance and register a soul center while having credentials in another denomination or religious society.

Thousands of Commended, Licensed, and Ordained ministers now comprise the ordination network. See Minister Directory

To register a Soul Center, the registering minister must be in the Minister Directory of the Christian Leaders Alliance.

Who is the Christian Leaders Alliance?

The Christian Leaders Alliance is the ministerial and clergy credentialing body within the Christian Leaders Institute, organized as a 501(c)(3) religious nonprofit corporation.

The Christian Leaders Institute vests this Christian religious society with the authority to conduct a worldwide program of creating religious societies called soul centers and credential clergy, including officiants and ministers. Credential ministers do not need to create or belong to a soul center; they can be credentialed through the Christian Leaders Alliance and remain in their local religious society affiliations, such as a church or a denomination.

 Christian Leaders Institute is headquartered in Largo, Florida, and Spring Lake, Michigan.

The Clergy Credentialing Methodology to Register a Soul Center

  1. Study the Bible and Ministry Training
    Christian Leaders Alliance is a ministry under the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI). CLI has crafted study programs that include over 200 courses and mini-courses.
  2. Submit to a Minister Credential Process, Including Local Endorsements
    After candidates for ministry credentials complete their ministry training classes, they undergo a ministry recognition process. Initially, they must obtain endorsements from people who know them. We encourage candidates to be prayed over and commissioned to their clergy role either in their local community or at a Christian Leaders Alliance event. After this process, they are granted minister/clergy status.
  3. Posted on the Global Ordination Directory 
    After they receive minister status, the newly credentialed minister is posted in the official Christian Leaders Alliance Minister Directory.
  4. Credentialed Ministers of the Christian Leaders Alliance are eligible to register a Soul Center.

Reporting Moral Failure in Ministers of the Christian Leaders Alliance and Soul Centers

Credentialed ministers and registered Soul Center leaders are expected to live godly and moderate lives, as reflected in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. Any form of illegal verbal, sexual, or physical abuse will not be acceptable or tolerated. Credible knowledge of moral failure will remove the registered Soul Center and the minister from the directory.

Don’t hesitate to contact us about any charge against a recognized minister who leads a Soul Center.

This notice outlines the relationship between individual Soul Centers and the Global Christian Leaders Alliance and Christian Leaders Ministry, Inc. Like many religious societies; each local organization is liable and responsible for its actions and ministry.

The Christian Leaders Alliance provides the Soul Centers Directory to serve its credentialed ministers. These ministers religiously affiliate with the Christian Leaders Alliance and each other, sharing a spiritual bond, vision, and mission. We welcome mutual prayer and support among each other as the body of Christ.

Credentialed ministers have completed a course of study relevant to their respective credentials and have satisfied the criteria established by the Christian Leaders Alliance, including obtaining local geographical endorsements. Additionally, they must maintain good standing and meet other requirements to register as a Soul Center.
