Outcomes Academy – Online: Fall 2016

Christian Leadership AllianceThe countdown is on for the Outcomes Academy – Online Fall 2016

As leaders who daily influence the thinking, behavior and development of others, we know it’s challenging to find time to invest in personal leadership development. Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA)  provides a solution that may be just what you need.

The Outcomes Academy – Online offers in-depth CLA leadership training on a state-of-the-art online platform developed by Azusa Pacific University College. These interactive and innovative 10-hour modules are developed by some of America’s top thinkers in Christian leadership, and are facilitated by experts with hands-on experience.

Easy to access, you will find flexibility in completing the work that is required. Participating in this learning experience is an  excellent opportunity to meet and be in a learning community with other Christian leaders who share your values and purpose.

Different online modules are offered each quarter. CLA has a vast library of dynamic online modules, and chooses the best mix of options each quarter to meet the needs of Christian leaders. In the line up each quarter, CLA features one “CCNL” multi-disciplinary module (required for CCNL participants) as well. This keeps those working to attain their Credential Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) status on pace to reach this goal.

Explore what is being offered this fall. Now is the time to sharpen your knowledge and skill as a leader.
