From the President
Covenant Life University (CLU) was established to provide Biblical Education and training for Church leadership at all levels within the confines of the local Church. It is owned and operated by New Covenant Fellowship Ministries, Inc., dba. Life Church, Ft. Myers, Fl. CLU is an outgrowth of the vision of Life Church to provide training from the same philosophy and methodology as the local Church by incorporating the vision of the leadership of the House into the courses offered and to provide the teaching ministry of other men and women of God with the same vision to its students.
The mandate of the leadership of CLU is to be the home base for many learning sites, institutes and places of higher education in the nations, fulfilling the command of Christ in Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. To that end, CLU is establishing local church based institutions of higher learning in many nations of the world.
Covenant Life University is organized to provide a variety of methods of education. Therefore Pastors can determine the methodology God has set before them for personal education or for providing a process whereby they can bring CLU alongside the vision of the local Church to educate and train the people For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ Ephesians 4:12. The curriculum is established on the uncompromising Word of God and the faith that God has instilled in those who believe what God has said in His Word - The Holy Bible.
