Thank You For The Best 10-Year Party Ever!

God blesses us through people.  He blesses us when we empower others to discern, develop, and deploy their gifts and calling.

Here are just SOME* of the people, staff and practitioners and former students — the CFL Tribe— who empowered the Center for Faithful Leadership over the last 10 years.

We had a blast!
