 Christian Leadership Institue is a 5-day training experience designed to give young people the opportunity to grow in faith and personal responsibility for peer leadership.  CLI focuses on skills and develops support systems that help young people become better Christ-like leaders in their churches, schools and community.  Decision making, communication skills, dealing with conflicts, role modeling, mentoring, learning from failure, prayer and discipleship are all tools of the trade.  CLI is held at the Lumen Christi Retreat Center once a year.

Why CLI?

CLI is about being "ALL IN". In Colossians 3 the bible says, "Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. And what ever you do, in word or in deed do everything in the name of Jesus."

The teens at CLI are challenged to go out and make a difference in the world. Whether it was at a nursing home on Saturday or building a handicapped ramp after CLI was over, not only were the lives of the people and families we helped changed but our lives were changed as well.
