Principled Christian Leaders

The Center for Clergy Excellence (CCE) is a Pecometh initiative focused on outstanding spiritual leadership. Its programs address a variety of ministry needs and situations.

Core Principles 

All programs have a common core of principles as a foundation for effective Christian leaders. These are:

  • A healthy spiritual life including attention to spiritual disciplines.
  • An understanding of family systems theory, leadership through differentiation and how one's own family of origin affects one's ability to lead.
  • A plan of self-care to promote physical & emotional well-being.
  • An ability to manage a variety of competing demands to stay focused on the things that have the most impact.

CCE programs also focus on practical aspects of spiritual leadership such as preaching, administration, pastoral care, theology/doctrine and sacraments.
