About CLTI

Our Mission

Christian Leadership Training International (CLTI) exists to bring both short-term and lasting change to communities through creative education initiatives, leadership training, and innovative entrepreneurship programs.

Our Vision

CLTI’s vision is to effect transformation spiritually, socially, and economically in all areas of the communities in which we serve.

Our Threefold Focus

  • Education: Provide coaching and study classes to high school students to improve academic proficiency. Provide scholarships to underprivileged and disadvantaged students. Construct a premier college preparatory high school.
  • Discipleship/Leadership Training: Coach and draw young men and women toward maturity in Christ, and ultimately change their lives.  (Matt. 28:18-20.)  Seek to increase opportunities for God’s Word to equip emerging Christian leaders and disciple new believers.
  • Entrepreneurship: Support entrepreneurs by providing free, confidential, one-on-one consultation to their small businesses.  Provide “seed fund” loans for entrepreneurs who develop a good business plan to start initial business or enhance an existing business.

Our Values

Because of our faith in Christ we believe that God will use us in amazing ways.   – Eph. 3:20

  • We honor and put Christ first in all we do.
  • We believe in being good stewards of the resources entrusted to us
  • We believe a true knowledge of God’s Word is the foundation for changing lives.
