What People Say About This Leadership Training Event…
This is the best professional development event I have ever attended as it both finds and maintains the appropriate balance and tension between skills/ knowledge and character/faith development. ~ Peter Bagley, Executive Director – Hephzibah Children’s Home
CLA Dallas helped me gain a fresh perspective on the Kingdom work we are part of by creating space to step away from daily routines and consider new ideas and practices to effectively follow our calling.~ Titus O’Bryant, Product Development Manager – Hope for the Heart
CLA Dallas was a spiritual refresher for me and gave me strength to come back to my organization fresh and renewed. – Shelly McCollum, CFO – World Gospel Mission
I could sense that God was “up to something” at CLA this year. There was a theme that came out through the worship and keynote speakers of getting back to the essentials of our calling, cleanse ourselves and get on with the job. I was inspired. – Steve Shantz, CIO – Trans World Radio
