Please note that the start of CLF Class of 2022, originally scheduled to begin August 2020, has been deferred by one full year due to the on-going health pandemic. We regret this necessary change and encourage you to apply now for the Class of 2023, that will begin in August 2021. Upon acceptance of your Application, you will be guaranteed a place in the class. Acceptance of your application does not require you to participate if your circumstances change in the interim; it simply allows you to plan accordingly. The schedule for CLF 2023 will have the same schedule as planned for the Class of 2022 with updated calendar dates.
A typical couple selected for the program will be in their 30's, married for 2+ years, and will have already demonstrated leadership ability. They will be believers in, and followers of Jesus Christ, and will have a strong desire to make his life meaningful in the building of God’s kingdom. They must be willing to commit to attend weekend seminars and evening meetings over a two year period. Candidates of all races and Christian denominations will be actively recruited. In order to allow for active discussion and close fellowship, the number of couples will be limited to 24.
Each participant will be asked to personally pay $2,000 which includes room and all meals for the weekend seminars, dinner at each evening meeting, books, course materials, speaker and administrative expenses. Payment may be made in four installments of $500 each, payable quarterly.
Note that the total cost per couple of the the two-year program is in excess $5,000. In many cases, the participant’s employer, church or family will want to pay all or part of the remaining $3,000 expense. Other donors will be needed to fund the rest of the expenses. All donations are tax deductible. The $2,000 tuition payment is not tax-deductible.
Application and reference forms are available online. The steps for applying are as follows: 1. Meet as a couple with a CLF Leadership Team Couple to gain an understanding and requirements of the CLF program. The couples who have benefited most from the CLF experience are often those who both fully understood the purpose and logistics of the program, especially as to the importance of attendance at all events. Commitment to attendance and participation is required.
