CCLI enables real-time access to licensed Christian music and media while at once easing the burden of administration in the many complex issues related to copyright.
Our story begins in 1984 when a pastor in Portland, Oregon first learned of a pending $3.1 million copyright lawsuit against the Archdiocese in Chicago. The pastor asked his music minister to ensure that his own church was covered.
Fast forward 30 plus years later, CCLI now serves more than 250,000 churches worldwide and has offices in over 5 countries including Sydney, Australia representing the Asia Pacific region.
Because copyright law and licencing is complex and because access to Christian content can require valuable time to discover, be confusing and expensive to licence per use, we make the following promises to every customer and partner.
Churches, Organisations and Individuals:
To deliver the highest-quality content and customer service to the greatest number of countries throughout the world by offering the deepest catalogue of licensed works from artists and publishers.
To represent a fair and equitable distribution channel for Christian churches, organisations and individual to access licensed works.
Songwriters and Artists:
To honour and protect the creative process (and product) while representing their work as originally intended.
Our roots began as a ministry of the church and a service to the church, in order to better educate and equip the church about copyright laws, to protect the church from the consequences of copyright infringement and to encourage greater utilisation of copyrights in church services. As our products and service continue to expand and evolve, we remain evermore committed to that cause.
