About Our christian leadership and Empowerment

Our Purpose

 The Christian Leaders Alliance is a multicultural fellowship of spiritually  diverse Christian leaders who recognize the need for  spiritual covering, training, and networking. We endeavor to give  Christian leaders the much deserved and needed opportunity to fulfill  divine calling, excel in Christian leadership, and achieve destiny. We  are a membership based organization. Our members enjoy the benefits of  spiritual support, mentoring, coaching, wise counsel, ministry  recognition, and leadership development.  

Our Mission

 Our mission is to be a birthing ground for emerging leaders and transport them into divine purpose and destiny.  

Our Fellowship

 CLA parents the anointed through God-centered direction, thereby  strengthening leaders through imparting and "iron-sharpening-iron"  dynamics. CLA promotes interdependence while encouraging the maintenance  of distinct, independent identities. The forum provides networking and  relationship-building opportunities with Christian leaders of diverse  backgrounds and experience. The CLA is committed to conducting all forms  of communication above reproach, with the highest integrity toward  another.

Spiritual Covering


Spiritual covering provides  guidance, legitimacy, and authority as a church professional for leaders  and clergy.   - Jerrell T. Beard, Sr.-M.DIV.,  MOL 

Spiritual  Covering is the next level of membership in CLA for those who choose to  be Spiritual Sons & Daughters of Apostle Jerrell T. Beard, Sr. We  do not take covenant lightly and neither should you. Pray and seek God's  direction. If you are then led to be a part of this dynamic group of  leaders, we will be honored to initiate your covenant relationship with  Apostle Jerrell Beard, Sr. and CLA today. Spiritual covering is for  Pastors (male and female), Apostles, Evangelists, Prophets, Teachers,  Leaders (Christian Organizations). 



In alignment with Galatians 6:6, those who become the Spiritual Sons  & Daughters commit by partnering to actively support this alliance  through tithing (if no active church membership) and/or offering (all  Spiritual Sons & Daughters) from personal income each month.  Membership to CLA does require an annual induction fee for all  participants.
