Clergy Leadership Training Institute
Several years ago, a survey of Anglican clergy in the U.S. and Canada revealed that a majority were interested in coaching and peer support on topics like:
- The leader's walk with God - spiritual disciplines
- How to prevent burnout and moral failure
- How to cultivate a healthy marriage
- Resources for preaching
- Peer support and fellowship - to be able to talk to other pastors and learn from their experience
The Clergy Leadership Training Institute's purpose is to address these needs. It will focus on the "four C's" of clergy leadership development: character, competency, compound results, and church conflict skills. This training will also equip clergy to raise up and develop other leaders, fostering a culture of leadership that is healthy, holy and missional.
What is the structure of the Clergy Leadership Training Institute?
The CLTI is a three year program designed to train clergy in small congregations to be spiritually healthy, effective leaders. Every 9-12 months, participants will gather with a small group of peers and meet for four days for training, one-on-one counseling, and fellowship. Each gathering will feature a different Christian leader with expertise in a particular area of need. These areas are:
- The leader's walk with God
- The ministry life of the leader
- Leading a growing church
Each gathering will also include teaching and discussion on how to deal with conflict. The clergy will form into peer accountability groups that will meet between gatherings and after the CLTI is completed. These groups will use leadership study lessons by EQUIP Ministries.

Our goal is for Anglican clergy to be spiritually healthy, effective leaders of growing congregations.
