“This is an exciting time for the Church. A time to rediscover who we are, what we are about and how to build the Kingdom in the 21st Century. It's also a scary time because we need to walk away from some of the structures that have been in place for 100 years in order to create new, relevant structures that allow us to continue the mission. CLI has given the foundation and tools to allow me to lead my parish through the chaos and to utilize the gifts and talents of parishioners in this time.”

Rev. David Frederici
