History

Vision Alliance was founded in 1998 by Rev. Marion K. Relefourd and Dr. BJ Relefourd.

In acknowledging the need for those desiring to serve God as licensed and ordained vessels to prepare for their call, Vision Alliance was developed.  The various programs allow men and women to begin and develop their ministerial journey at various points of their lives.

Classes are taught in a virtual online  environment which is conducive to producing men and women with excellent ministerial skills and development of ministry gifts. Our desire through technology and printed materials is to maintain professionalism with a Christian educational atmosphere.
