About CLI

Program Overview

The Confessional Lutheran Institute (CLI) exists to equip, enhance, and enable African pastors within Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference (CELC)-member churches throughout Africa.

To accomplish this, the CLI seeks to engage the active pastors of these churches through formal continuing education and informal professional development opportunities. The CLI also provides seminary consultation to equip the worker training systems within these church bodies for the training of their own future pastors.

As a program of Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, read our brief statement of beliefs.
