The Commissioned Pastor training 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.
Commissioned Pastors are individuals who have demonstrated spiritual giftedness and church leadership. Their calling and competencies have been confirmed so that they are credentialed as pastoral leaders in churches and church-related ministries.
Commissioned Pastors serve in positions such as worship leaders, youth pastors, church planters, ministers of congregational care, lead pastors, directors of discipleship, bi-vocational pastors who lead smaller churches, outreach coordinators and others.
