Christian Leadership Programme
This three-year BISA programme, offering bible based leadership studies, is aimed at pastors, church leaders and lay workers who desire further training in the field of Christ-centred preaching and church leadership. The Programme is also offered to selected applicants in correctional centres who have a desire to be trained to reach out to their fellow inmates.
Classes take place on the BISA campus, at various churches on the Cape Flats and in correctional centres, on Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 19:00-21:00 for the duration of the term dates as stipulated. A Recognition of Achievement Certificate is awarded by the Bible Institute of South Africa, for completing the course successfully.

“Every Tuesday evening is a highlight for me as I am excited to attend classes. What stood out for me was that we are all from different churches, have different viewpoints (as we were taught), but came to realize that it’s not about us, but rather that God be glorified in our lives.” William Louw, 2015 CLP Graduate“
I have been given the confidence and tools to identify misleading or unbiblical principles or doctrine and now find myself able to answer some questions according to the biblical teachings and scriptures.” Michelle Cramer 2015 Graduate
