CLI Collaborating With Baptist Seminary of Kentucky’s Flourish Program

Church Leadership Institute (CLI) is collaborating with The Flourish Center to provide additional growth opportunities for church leaders.  The Flourish Center is an initiative of Baptist Seminary of Kentucky and is working to empower congregations to find their own paths to flourishing.  Churches face a rapidly changing culture, leading to fresh questions about how to be the church in the years ahead.  Initially, with Flourish topics scheduled each Spring and Fall, Flourish opportunities will primarily involve gathering and sharing stories from congregations who have already discovered paths forward.

CLI honors participation in the Flourish Program by allowing students to apply work in similar topics through Flourish towards a similar class requirement within the CLI program.  Students will register directly with Baptist Seminary of Kentucky (BSK) on their website and contact us at to let us know.

Flourish is launching the program this Fall with the topics below:

A 50% discount is available for current CLI students and those affiliated with an ABC-IN/KY member church registering for one of these Fall opportunities! Contact Jennifer Greene at for the coupon code.
  • Youth Ministry 1 (6 Tuesdays-1 hour evening time slot, beginning October 13, 2020)

It’s not too late to register for this topic!  The live sessions will be recorded, so anyone registering late can catch up with conversations.  Also, the Flourish Team is working on a leader’s guide too, so groups who want to use the material after the course ends can just purchase a “non-live” version of it, complete with all the videos and “extras”.
  • Introduction to the Bible (6 Mondays-1 hour evening time slot, beginning October 19, 2020)
