As such, our degrees or certification are given to the well deserving. We pride in what happens beyond the degree or certificate, the experience itself—learning and practices that can support students’ continued growth as fully human, God-indwelled beings.
The Living School Institute is currently working through an extensive process to update its program and curriculum.
Applications will reopen once that process is complete.

We continue to partner with teachers who live and teach from this same vision, broadening our programs and their reach to serve a new generation of seekers.
As Apostle Alain Lea enters a busy chapter of public life, Christ In All Nations (CIAN) faces a unique opportunity to build upon the legacy of his decades of teaching in support of the emerging of a renewed generation of leaders within Christianity.
A key priority for us at the CIAN has been to effectively partner with an expanding team of gifted faculty to serve as elders, teachers, and spiritual leaders to continue serving and building on Apostle’s founding vision for many years to come—potentially even more powerfully than ever before.
In 2021 the CIAN and its Living School were blessed with the additions of several ministers of the Gospel around the globe, joining Alain Lea and his team of leaders as the core Faculty of the CIAN.
We continue to partner with teachers who live and teach from this same vision, broadening our programs and their reach to serve the spiritual needs of a new generation of seekers. In all things, we remain committed to our founding mission to offer Christian teaching that transforms and liberates individuals and communities in service to the healing work of love and compassion.
is the Founding Director of Christ in All Nations. He is an international minister, philanthropist and author for more than a decade. Alain is known for his bold and uncompromising approach to God’s Word. His resources have been translated into several languages, and thousands of copies have been given away worldwide. When he is at home, you can find Alain playing golf or trying to make a good meal.
From the earliest days of Apostle Alain Lea’s ministry, his passion has been not only to reveal Christ in the lost, but also to build people up, to live and flow from their God ordained calling and position. It has been not simply to make converts, but to reveal sons and daughters to their world. This is not simply an education—not just knowledge and information—it is an equipping, an empowering, an uplifting that Apostle Alain were commissioned by Papa to do in the nations. This is an illustration of how man should live—an applicable understanding of how to move in the miraculous and how to see your entire life transformed into the image and likeness of the Son of God alive in you!
In addition to the influence of the Orthodoxy and the Perennial Tradition of the church Fathers , Apostle Alain Lea has highlighted particular aspects of his lineage and themes that are foundational to the Living School Institute curriculum.
