Christian Leaders Restorative Education

Removing Barriers

Freely-given Christian restorative education that has the power to bring revival to prison culture, providing the tools and worldview to succeed.

Multiplying Generosity

Empowering those seeking to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives of others. 

Christian Leaders College will offer free restorative education courses system-wide, up to a Bachelor's degree, to those in the Michigan Department of Corrections via Google Chromebook.

Christian Leaders believes that ministers are difference-makers.

Ministry inspires called individuals to be agents of change in their community and the world.

With the opportunity to expand into Michigan Department of Corrections, the Lord continues to raise up ministers in every walk of life who will receive training and credentials through Christian Leaders College. 

Educational programs, such as the Calvin Prison Initiative, have laid the foundation for these life-changing opportunities with in-person instruction. Christian Leaders has been inspired by these successes and will build on them by:

  • Offering courses in an online format so that eligible students can quickly and efficiently access training. 
  • Building curriculum that focuses on transformative living inside and outside prison.
  • Creating a learning platform that is self-guided and requires little to no administrative intervention.

"Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Matthew 26-28

What is Restorative Education?

Christian Leaders Restorative Education seeks to educate and develop the whole person, focusing not only on academic matters, but spiritual, emotional, physical, vocational, mental, and relational health. Course content will equip students with the skills to transform their lives and position them to change the culture within their current context, and prepare them to make a difference for Christ as they reenter society.

Required coursework will include 'Transformative Incarcerated Living', which will walk students through creation, the fall, redemption, and a new creation, and focus on the implications of self-worth, discipleship, sanctification, vocation, and lived theology. The purpose of this course is to inspire students to see themselves as agents of renewal.
