RCA Commissioned Pastor

certified training of church leadership center

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. 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.

Church Leadership Center has been authorized by the Reformed Church in America (RCA) to provide training and oversee Commissioned Pastor candidates. If you find yourself ready to jump in, we first invite you to spend a few minutes exploring our Commissioned Pastor Candidate Process and Finances.
