Share Your Story About ‘Churches Cultivating Leaders’


“The church has always been my second home. Growing up, I heard Bible stories but never knew there was more behind those stories. I wanted to know more about those stories, which led me to enroll in the LDN (Leadership Development Network) program. After three years of study I was examined and received my license to exhort. But I didn’t preach in my own church until three years later. I did preach in other places, though.”

Darleen Litson, a member of Four Corners CRC in Teec Nos Pos, Arizona, tells the story of her call to leadership in Our Journey 2020: the Ministry Plan of the Christian Reformed Church.
