For more than 40 years, Christian Literacy Associates (CLA) has been engaging and equipping churches, parents, ministries, and missionaries to meet the basic reading needs of children and adults while sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a part of the reading lessons.
Today, in the United States, there are approximately 40 million functionally illiterate adults. As well, in our nation, 80% of low-income 4th grade children read below grade level. Our mission is to mobilize the Christian community to address the basic reading needs of children and adults while exposing the student to the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, we provide the key to eliminate illiteracy, build relationships, and share the Good News using The Christian Literacy Series.
