The Pastoral and Leadership Team of CLC is best represented as three spheres of leadership. The   Senior   Pastor and Elders give oversight to the spiritual matters and pastoral care for members of   CLC. Another   sphere of leadership is the Board of Directors who is the legal governing body that   gives oversight to all   financial, business and temporal affairs of CLC. This governing body is elected   by the membership of CLC each year. Our third sphere is our Ministry Directors who give oversight to   specific ministries of CLC.
