Using Jesus' Ministry Model

Jesus was a Rabbi – a teacher, a walking school, a free ministry training school supported by his means and the generosity of first-century donors. His goal was to both do ministry and to teach and show his students how to do ministry. Then they could teach and guide their students in how to do ministry. Jesus’ model was to empower multipliers. 


Jesus was all about equipping and launching ordinary people.

We are too.

CLI was founded on the idea that anyone with internet access can pursue their calling from the Lord and become qualified.
