If you desire to grow as a leader and learn the principles needed to leave a legacy, the NICL Online is right for you!

The NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP (NICL) is an intense, personal, relevant leadership training that is full of real-world applications. The NICL is not just a two-day event. It’s a life-expanding and leadership-expanding process designed to transform you into the leader God destined you to be. Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like you’re not growing? Do you need help from an expert in leadership? There is no other leadership training like the NICL. I am confident that it will not only help you lead your church, business or ministry, it will help you lead in a bold new way to accomplish all of your God-given dreams. Enrolling in the NICL Online allows you to work through all three sessions at your own pace and on your schedule.

Change your life and ministry in just a few short training sessions.

As you work through these three sessions, you'll gain the leadership principles necessary to navigate crisis in staff management, increase giving, grow your ministry, recruit more volunteers, reduce conflict, increase your brand and influence, and build trust in your staff and congregation. After completing the NICL Online, many senior leaders have stated the NICL should be a requirement before going into full time ministry. As you work through Dr. Rutland's training, you'll take away life lessons you wish someone would have taught you before you stepped into your first church or ministry. These leadership principles apply to church leaders, Christian business owners and marketplace ministers.

Here's what one recent Graduate had to say:

“I’m 58 years old and have been in ministry as an associate pastor for the last 16 years. Prior to that I was an engineer working in Atlanta. This entire course, by far, has been an incredible journey and so beneficial because college and/or seminary school does not prepare you for leadership. Unfortunately, these institutions shy away from the practical side of leadership. Dr. Rutland should be commended for assembling such a vast array of topics taught from a “passionate, first-hand experience” point of view. VERY powerful to say the least. This course should be a prerequisite for all pastors in seminary.”
