Dear follower of Jesus,

It is time to develop your God-given gift of leadership for the Church

Isn't it amazing?! The church of Jesus is the largest and oldest continuously functioning social organization in the world! That's because it is the Body of Christ, and he guides it through time and across cultures. And because he raises up leaders, generation by generation, pouring his love in young lives and empowering them with the gifts of the Spirit.

You know it. You've felt it. And you see the evidence around you. Jesus is calling you to lead groups and ministries in your congregation. 

We at CLC can help you gain the training needed, whether to with your congregation and provide leadership, or move into other parts of God's mission in his world.

Our next  cohort will begin in the summer of 2024. We invite you to partner with us. Together, we can make a difference and prepare these young individuals to effectively lead in the church and beyond.


Certified training based on developing competencies.

Our CLC approach is to nurture the essential competencies for general Christian leadership, and not to focus on broader and more varied individualized skill sets that are often needed in specific ministry leadership roles. We do not discount these things but focus our ministry investments on the central teachings generally needed at the heart of all ministry leadership in the Christian church.
