Summary

CLC is a men's organization committed to training Christian leaders. CLC equips men for a lifetime of leadership at home, in business, in church, or in their community. Our leadership modules are based on a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and sound biblical principles. CLC has no denominational affiliation, but is pleased to work alongside men with a wide range of church backgrounds. The curriculum is orthodox in theology, and helps men interact with Scripture and investigate for themselves what the Bible has to say about life issues.

Purpose

CLC challenges men to an uncommon pursuit of Christ. We facilitate small groups of committed believers who refuse to be satisfied with the status quo and desire a deeper relationship with Christ.

CLC men are relentlessly transparent with one another as they journey together through life and become men of extraordinary faith. Our programs require sacrifice and the risk of vulnerability, but that investment brings about a transformation marked by a greater understanding of who God is, a stronger relationship with Him, and a uniquely powerful bond with other Christian men. Through this journey, God shapes men into bold, zealous leaders who are equipped to lead others toward Christ.

History

Founded in 1982 by Dr. Hal Hadden, CLC began by training small groups of men for spiritual leadership. The result of this experience was that a "band of brothers" was created and sharing life became the norm for men long after the training ended. The long-term effect was that marriages were strengthened, families became healthier, and churches and communities saw men stepping up for leadership positions.

CLC began in Middle Tennessee, but before long was branching out to other areas of the state and beyond. Three decades later, thousands of lives have been changed as CLC has influenced men in 157 cities, 25 states, and Canada (Alberta and British Columbia).

Currently under the leadership of Dr. Craig Fry, CLC is pleased to work alongside men from a wide range of church backgrounds. The curriculum is orthodox in theology, and yet the experience is radically different for the typical man. Our programs help men interact with scripture and investigate for themselves what the Bible says about life issues. In addition, as men walk this journey of discovery together, lifelong friendships are developed and sustained.

CLC has had an impact in Canada and the following U.S. States: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia
