Outcomes Academy Online –  Summer 2018

The Outcomes Academy is Christian Leadership Alliance’s most in-depth professional learning experience. You can register and access it wherever your ministry travels take you this summer!

The Academy is designed by subject matter experts to equip Christian leaders for operational excellence in eight core functional areas. Practical and full of best practices, this learning experience offers critical insights and instruction that will advance the effectiveness of leaders and the organizations they serve.

The Outcomes Academy Online offers in-depth leadership training on a state-of-the-art online platform. These interactive and innovative 10-hour modules are developed by some of America’s top thought leaders in Christian leadership, and group discussions are facilitated by experts with hands-on experience.

Christian Leadership Alliance has a vast library of dynamic online modules, and chooses the best mix of options to meet the needs of today’s Christian leader.

Each quarter Christian Leadership Alliance features one “CCNL” multi-disciplinary module (required for CCNL participants) as well. This summer we offer two CCNL required courses!

You may also want to learn more about earning your CCNL and having it count for more through York College’s masters program. This is a excellent way to keep on learning and growing as a nonprofit leader.
