CLI-Fall Quarter 2017


CLI is a ministry of American Baptist Churches of Indiana and Kentucky, in cooperation with ABC-Greater Indianapolis, for growing, equipping & enriching Christians for ministry in their home churches, communities and associations.


Participants are not required to commit to a leadership program!

Those seeking topics for personal enrichment or continuing education are welcome! CEUs available upon request!

Other Christian Denominations are welcome to participate as well!

Each class title consists of:

  • 20 hours of classroom instruction & interaction usually divided into four (4) non-consecutive Saturday sessions
  • outside reading along with assignments and/or projects which enrich class discussion and each student’s learning experience

Class sizes are small and instructors meet each student where they are in their faith journey and educational capabilities.

It is strongly recommended students attend all class sessions, but those students committed to earning credit have the opportunity to earn one (1) excused absence per class title.

Students are expected to arrive each scheduled Saturday by 8:45am; class sessions begin at 9:00am; class sessions end at approximately 3:15pm.

If you would like to register as an “audit student” and not earn credit or a completion certificate, the registration fee is less and the requirements listed for each class title are only recommendations.

Registered students may invite their spouse to register as a “spouse audit” free of charge!

Please RSVP as soon as possible to help us determine if a class can be held.  We need 10 or more students for each class title.

If you are not officially registered by the Monday before the first class session is scheduled to meet (and you know you plan to participate), it is very important to verbally RSVP by that date, so we can plan and prepare for your participation. Thank you for your courtesy and cooperation.


CLI classes will be launched in Scottsburg, Indiana in January 2018!!  DETAILS AVAILABLE SOON!

Opportunities to complete other requirements for CLI Leadership Programs available next January!!
