One of the requirements of ordination with CLM is to complete our required reading list. We require you to read four books, one on theology, one on leadership and one on communication and one on business. We will give you 6 months from the time of registration to complete the reading. There are several books in each category, so please choose one of the options from each of the 3 categories. To view and or order the books, please click on the book title and be redirected to our Amazon.ca account.
If you have a theology degree, please inform us by email with the name of the school and the level of education completed.
