We recommend you start with the Academy FAQs. You find one for both members and nonmembers.


Enroll in the Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) Program

Commit to expanding the scope of leadership acumen by enrolling in the distinctive CCNL program!

The Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) program is designed to promote biblical principles and professional standards in Christian nonprofit organizations. This program exists because Christian nonprofits need leaders who have proven expertise and certified excellence in their professional fields.

Those who receive the CCNL credential will possess a proven multi-disciplinary understanding of nonprofit leadership.

Training traverses all the critical areas of professional practice: personal leadership, executive leadership, resource development, financial management, tax and legal, board governance, people management and care, marketing and communication, and Internet and technology.


Then you will be ready to take your first required course. We highly recommend you begin your journey with the CCNL-1 Leadership course.  Over this 10-week experience, you will cover three of the nine core disciplines: personal leadership, executive leadership, and board governance.

You can also register to take the 10-week course, The Heart of the Leader. This one will count as 20 points toward your CCNL electives.

Registration is open until June 20. Courses start on June 27.
