Our Story

1992

New Creation Ministries (NCM) was founded by a group of seven Rwandans and one American missionary. We began our ministry with a focus on training lay leaders within the Church.

1994

The Genocide in Rwanda brought classes to a halt. Two of the original eight founders were killed. We temporarily shifted our attention to providing relief for those who were displaced by the fighting.

1998

After many years and significant disruptions, our first cohort of students successfully graduated from NCM.

1999

God blessed us with a 5 acre plot of land on the outskirts of Kigali, surrounded by fields and cow pastures. This land is now in a prime location in the capital city.

2002

After ten years of working with lay leaders, we made the decision to revamp the training program of NCM. We wanted to make it more in depth and to focus specifically on training pastors. This was the beginning of the Pastoral Training School (PTS).

2015

After many years of prayer and preparation, the Christian Leadership Institute of Rwanda (CLIR) was officially launched. It provided quality higher education with the goal of seeing leaders made new in Christ and equipped to transform their families, churches and communities.

2019

A quick and unexpected reversal in government policy forced all theological universities in Rwanda to close until they received accreditation. Since then, CLIR has been working diligently to meet the government's requirements and to re-launch as an accredited university.
