Practical Education, A Theme For Life.

In 1992 I set off for the high desert of northern Los Angeles to study Theology at the Masters College under John MacArthur, but despite the wonderful opportunity I had, I was unable to learn in the typical classroom environment.  Like many would be students, the ability to digest 1 - 2 hour lectures carrying a full 17 credit hour load with the homework, projects, and tests was just unmanageable.

I had no problem learning material, but listening to instructors drone on and on, and spin out an endless amount of homework was just a ridiculous burden on me.  I wondered what was being a disciple all about?  I wondered if Paul gave Timothy homework everyday, or if he taught and then expected a performance review on how the teaching was applied.

Now I understand a little bit better what being a disciple is all about, and education is important, but the application of education is where the proof lies, and that is why I'm so thankful that Christian Leaders Institute brings education to a level that is flexible with your time and your money so that your education is tailored around your ability and schedule.

I graduated in May of 2021 with a GPA of 3.87 with 162 credit hours earning my Bachelor of Divinity Degree graduating with honors of Magna Cum Laude.  I never thought I would be able to finish college, but CLI put my goal back in reach.

While my primary goal is completed, there are still other classes to take and learn from which I will add to this list as time goes on.

 

In addition to my studies at CLI, I have also completed 120 hours of OSH training to become a Certified Occupational Safety and Health Professional.
