Developing Principled Christian Leaders

The mission of the Center for Leadership Development (CLD) is to develop principled Christian leaders for the transformation of the world. Our priority is to design an ‘ecosystem’ for cultivating young leaders (35 and under) and culturally-diverse leaders who can reach the mission field. Additionally, we strive to cultivate leaders to support the objective to catalyze gatherings of new faces in new spaces in and through every local church and in targeted mission fields.

We continue to re-imagine all our ministries through the lens of reaching young leaders and diverse leaders through a system of Wesleyan Formation, Leadership Development, Vocational Discernment and Professional Development events, programs and initiatives. In collaboration with the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry, the CLD seeks to recruit gifted, diverse clergy; develop and sustain clergy and laity through life-long learning; and equip Staff/Pastor Parish Relations Committees to collaborate with their clergy for ongoing formative work towards greater effectiveness. In addition, we connect and resource Boards and Resources for churches and laity.
