The purpose of Destiny Leadership Institute (DLI) is to make biblical and leadership training available anywhere in the world, enabling Christian leaders to develop character, discover calling, increase competence, and operate within their respective organization’s culture. The training is designed to raise the quality of service coming from every level of leadership—not just those entering full-time ministry. The program is interactive, flexible, and affordable, so that emerging leaders can discover their purpose and develop their gifts without interrupting other duties (i.e. family, work, local church ministry obligations). DLI seeks to be part of the answer to the prayer that Jesus instructed his disciples to pray, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Luke 10:2).

The mission of DLI is to train Christian leaders through both study and service. Students learn Bible, theology, and leadership through online courses, while serving as interns in their local church under the guidance of spiritual leadership. 




We believe that character is foundational to leadership.  We do a great disservice to people when we teach them what they are supposed to do before we teach them what kind of person they are supposed to be. 

We believe that each person has a unique calling that is to be discovered and developed. 

We emphasize the importance of competence. God expects excellence, which we define as “doing our very best every time.”

We are not competitors with the local church; we are partners with the local church. Thus, we seek to train leaders to operate within the structure and culture of their respective local church.



Destiny Leadership Institute currently offers a two-year program that, upon completion, leads to the Diploma in Christian Leadership. Each Core is designed to be user-friendly and practical, as well as academically sound. Utilizing the latest Internet technology coupled with time-proven educational delivery systems, DLI cultivates the student’s understanding of Scripture, their ministry gifting and personal life vision. By doing so, we assist them in laying firm foundations within their lives upon which they can build their Ministry and Leadership skills.

The program is broken up into two academic years.


Destiny Leadership Institute (DLI) is committed to providing access to top quality ministry and leadership training at very affordable tuition rates. Our tuition is a fraction of the cost at similar institutions. This is made possible as a result of our management strategy and the generosity of our covenant partners who subsidize the cost of operation to help keep tuition rates low. Tuition is $1,500 per year. When paid in full up front, a 10% discount is applied, so that the total is only $1,350. Otherwise, the balance can be paid in 6 consecutive installments of $250.
