CCCL Orange and Black Logo jpg2small

The Center for Calling and Christian Leadership  mentors young people (mostly Methodists) ages 12 and up across the state of Arkansas who are exploring a call to ministry. From the beginnings of discerning a call and throughout the vocational discernment process to professional church leadership, the Center offers programming in a variety of areas, including worship leadership, shadowing, orientation to ministry, spiritual formation, peer support, internships, and service-learning opportunities.
