Although the primary goal of local Christian churches is to win souls for the kingdom of God, they also strive to serve their immediate community’s material, emotional, and mental needs as the hands and feet of Christ. Unfortunately, many pastors and local Christian leaders often feel isolated and defeated in the face of a post-pandemic world, uncertain financial futures, and shouldering a calling that seems to get heavier every day. Many have contemplated whether they should give
up and fold their program, especially those who work with populations that need the most ministry and care.
This is where the CLF World Conference steps in. The Conference serves as a platform to connect local ministries with vital resources for nurture and growth, to inspire local pastors through talks from the brightest minds in ministry, to host networking opportunities with other likeminded organizations for partnerships for a more significant impact, and to provide Biblical-centric fellowship between church leaders from different nationalities and walks of life.
In 1 Samuel, when David’s enemies have stolen everything from him, he encouraged himself in the Lord and went on to recover all through faith in God’s promise. At CLF, we believe that when the local ministry gets encouraged and equipped with the tools they need, they can change their city for the glory of the gospel. Come and join us in our mission, and we can’t wait to meet you at the World Conference.

Testimonies from the Participants
Lighthouse of Prayer International, Texas, USA
So many people from so many different nations. Forty-eight nations are visiting here; being able to get to know them and make so many new friends has really been the highlight of my experience at this conference. I love the Christian Leaders Fellowship. I would recommend it to any of my pastors, friends, or leaders. It has impacted me in such a powerful way by exposing me to other relationships globally around the world.
Born Again Faith Church,
The counsel and fellowship in South Korea have been a blessing of enormous propor-tions. God has used this conference to bring so many people together. So many things that are discussed at the CLF are going to become the reason and purpose of our next move in the world. I believe that the Gospel needs to be preached now, but the emphasis has to be on those young people who will, in turn, spread the Gospe
New Life Covenant Church,
This conference is amazing, especially be-cause it brings like-minded people from all over the world to meet here whom all desire to let the world know about Jesus. What’s great about CLF is that it is commonplace and offers a platform created for other ministries to come and join and network to send the message of grace. We are eternally redeemed and forgiven and have a right standing with the Lord.
Pastor Park preaches a simple, simple mes-sage. A message of grace. A message that the Lord Jesus Christ loves us so much that he gave his life for us. That he did everything. That all we need to do is believe, is believe what Jesus did for us. It’s a very simple, very practical message. It is so encouraging to hear the simplicity of our grace in Jesus Christ.
I never heard of CLF until this year, but as I came, saw, and experienced it for myself, I thought it was a great environment where we could partner, grow, and learn how to share the Gospel of grace.
