Continuing Lay Training Coordinator

The District CLT Program

The district Continuing Lay Training program offers opportunity for the district NDI organization to promote and deliver teacher/worker training events. The district Continuing Lay Training Coordinator is a key member of the District NDI Board. District CLT coordinators may work with the general CLT office to assign CLT unit numbers to district training events, thus linking district training to CLT credits. This provides additional incentive to event participants as credit earned applies to CLT certificates and awards.

The Discipleship Place is the NDI website where CLT and other discipleship resources can be found.
