Who We Are

Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) is an alliance of more than 6,000 mission-focused Christians who lead in today’s high-impact Christian nonprofit ministries, churches, educational institutions, and businesses.

What We Do

CLA exists to equip and unite Christian leaders to think higher for greater kingdom outcomes. CLA provides experiences, resources and tools that move leaders beyond effective management. CLA inspires Christ-centered leadership that transforms people, organizations, and ultimately, the world.

How We Do It

CLA learning experiences integrate organizational excellence with a Biblical worldview. CLA leaders particpate in professional leadership training, robust networking communities and other life-on-life learning experiences. The Outcomes Conference, Outcomes Academy, Leader2Leader groups and local chapters are the places and spaces where CLA leaders gather to engage, learn and grow.

CLA publishes print, digital, video and audio resources to educate and inform leaders. Members enjoy digital access to all CLA publications and webcasts.

CLA leadership development focuses on eight core categories:

  • Executive Leadership
  • Resource Development
  • Financial Management
  • Tax & Legal
  • Board Governance
  • People Management and Care
  • Internet and Technology
  • Communications and Marketing
