The heart of Church Leadership Center

That's why CLC is dedicated to helping activate individuals "sitting in the pew" to be missional, incarnational, and transformational in their daily lives. Whether you're new to the faith or a long-time believer, CLC is deeply committed to offering resources, support, and inspiration to help you live out a Christ-centered life in meaningful and life-giving ways.
