The first five months you will be empowered to grow in teaching, preaching, administrative, and servant leadership giftings at an already-established church. The remaining two months will take place at an actual church plant where you will experience the excitement of taking part in the launch of a new work for Christ. Those who have been through the LEARN portion are invited to apply for the EXPERIENCE at the discretion of CCLV leadership.
