On This Eternity Depends
God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.
– Jeremy Taylor
At the Outcomes Conference, CLA Dallas 2015, Christian Leadership Alliance brings leaders a focus on “time.” God has called you into leadership for such a time as this. The goal of this national leadership training event is to equip you to pursue the kingdom outcomes that God has ordained. The time we have each been given is short and the mission is urgent.
