As I’ve spent more time in the pastorate, I’ve become more and more convicted of the importance of leadership development within the church, both for current and emerging leaders. CLC has been a huge help to Community Reformed Church (CRC) and me as we’ve partnered together in training and equipping leaders, especially through the Commissioned Pastor program.
The Commissioned Pastor pathway of CLC exists to come alongside individuals within the local church who are seeking to grow as leaders in their congregation while also being recognized by their denomination as having been properly equipped for their call.
At CLC we focus on raising missional leaders. What’s the best way to raise the missional impact of churches? Raise the missional effectiveness and capacities of their leaders. We work directly with leaders in churches for the purpose of equipping them for missional outreach and church renewal.
The unique contribution that CLC makes into the church planting movement is a focus on reaching people with the Good News of Jesus Christ through church planting by aligning our training with 5 big cultural and demographic trends facing the Church in the United States and Canada.
