The Church Leadership Network is a meeting place for leaders throughout the United Church of Canada to share ideas and resources and build relationships with each other.
It is sponsored by the General Council Office CLN Team to help the work of the General Council staff more faithfully address the needs of the whole church. As such, the network is restricted to those who are currently (or in the process of becoming) involved in leadership positions within the United Church. If you are not currently in leadership in the United Church, you may wish to visit United-Church.ca.
