Church Planting & Revitalization
Our desire is to connect North American congregations in a way that amplifies what God is doing in our churches and increases our effectiveness as a Disciple-Making Movement.
The Church of the Lutheran Brethren is excited to have several church plant initiatives going on right now. Please keep these church plants in your prayers as they bring the gospel to those who desperately need to hear it.
EQUIPPING, GROWING, MOLDING
Resource Website & "Grace for the Grind" Podcast
The CLB Forge is designed to serve you as the primary source for vitality resources and communication for your congregation. Our hope is to connect North American congregations in a way that amplifies what God is doing in our churches and increases our effectiveness as a Disciple-Making Movement.
The CLB Forge is a dynamic and ever-expanding resource sharing system, along with the "Grace for the Grind" podcast that explores theological and practical topics related to the work that God is doing through his Church. This resource website is populated by generous churches and individuals sharing original resources that have worked for their ministry.
CLB Youth Ministry is equipping, teaching, loving, and serving the next generation through our pastors and youth workers. The CLB seeks to unleash our youth to be leaders in our churches and denomination.
Our youth ministry page provides resources and opportunities for youth workers, along with information and links to connect with our youth ministries coordinator and other youth leaders around the CLB.
Young Adult Gap Year Ministry
The Church of the Lutheran Brethren and Tuscarora Inn & Conference Center are excited to partner in providing a valuable gap-year ministry for our young adults called Rooted, starting in 2024. Taking place at Tuscarora, Rooted will provide a place to intentionally slow down to allow God to mold minds, hearts, and character into exactly what he desires.
DIRECTOR: Rev. Roger Viksnes
We envision young people experiencing deep Christian community and a large variety of ministry opportunities and then to go into the rest of their lives ready to be influencers for the kingdom of God. - Rev. Roger Viksnes, Rooted Director
