Carey Leadership Institute

CLI has two divisions:
  • STEPS Workshops & Seminars
  • NCCA Certification & License Program 
STEPS provides workshops and seminars for ministries and organizations utilizing the STEPS series workbooks authored by Jonathan C. Carey.
  • Our concepts and principles are biblical-based.  
  • Our workshops and seminars are available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
  • We have limited opportunities each year to conduct workshops and seminars, so please reach out to us as soon as possible. 
The entire series was developed to provide in a workbook form steps for personal and ministry success. It targets two groups.
  • Firstly, leaders desiring biblically-based personal development study materials.
  • Secondly, youth, and adults as an evangelism and personal development tools.
  • The steps are taken from biblical characters reflecting part of their life’s quest and challenges. 

It is hoped that the series will be welcomed not only by believers for personal study, but also by, Bible Training Institutes, Mission Organizations, Sunday School Classes, Youth Camps, Cell Groups, Prison Ministries, and all those who are involved in the maturing of the saints.

A Personal Development Audit is offered for most workbooks. Visit our bookstore

Training Calendar


CLI is a licensed Certified Academic Institution (CAI) through the National Christian Counselor Association. Individuals may take courses with CLI and qualify to earn their Bachelor's, Master's, and/or Doctoral degrees through the N.C.C.A.'s degree transfer assistance program.

As a licensed minister in good standing, you may also become a licensed Pastoral/Christian counselor. You would not be licensed by the state or nation that you reside in, but rather through the National Christian Counselor’s Association (N.C.C.A.).

Having N.C.C.A. credentials will help ensure that you are recognized within your community as a qualified Christian/Pastoral counselor. The community can be assured that your credentials are authentic and current.

We believe that the training you receive provides a deep spiritual insight into understanding human behavior and relating to others. This knowledge is both valuable and practicable in every area of life, including your ability to help those who are hurting.

So whether you wish to become certified or pursue a degree in Christian/Pastoral Counseling, CLI is here to help. Contact us and we can discuss which path is best for you. Please Contact Us Here.

This program is required to qualify as a Hope Plaza Pastoral Counselor.

Dear Dr. Carey, "I wish to say thank you for the powerful and anointed leadership seminar on Thursday, June, 18th in South Africa via zoom. Although I'm in Kansas City, MO, I'm glad I was able to attend. I learned many things that will indeed help me lead my team effectively. The method of facilitation was simple. Thanks to you and your great team for the impact that you are making in the world for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May God bless the work of your hands and cause it to prosper more and more". 

Pastor Samuel Dean
