A Prison Ministry that Teaches Leadership
The CLI Leadership Bible Study was designed and written to help men and women influence the ideas, opinions and actions of others for Jesus Christ. We want inmates to actively answer the call of God on their lives right in the prisons where they have been placed. The CLI study is free for the incarcerated. See all the lessons here.
The first step is for the inmate to fill out the Who Is God Application and return it to us. If accepted he or she will receive the first lesson in the mail. After completing the lesson, it is returned to our offices where a volunteer reads and responds to their answers and questions. It is then returned with a new lesson by mail. There are 15 lessons and a certificate is awarded after completion.
The CLI Leadership Bible Study is available in English, Large Print and Spanish. Over 12,000 prison inmates have enrolled.
See the list of the 3,043 students who enrolled this year here. CLI BS Students 2017
The CLI Discipleship Bible Study
The CLI Discipleship Bible Study is the next level Bible study. Now a prison inmate will be paired with a mentor who will write the inmate and review his lessons.
There are 15 lessons and a certificate is awarded after completion. See all the lessons here.
An International Opportunity
CLI welcomes the opportunity to partner with other prison ministries around the world. We currently work with ministries in Ecuador and Nigeria. They print the CLI Bible study from our website and take the lessons into the prisons. The CLI Bible study is available in English and Spanish.
These partners have church volunteers who review the inmate lessons and send them back to the prisons.
Join us in partnership to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the incarcerated!
Note: CLI does not provide books, Bibles outside the US, or funds to translate the lessons.
