At CLF, the nations are written deep in our hearts as a local church body.  We believe that beyond the call of touching our own local community lies a call to see the gospel of Jesus Christ impact the nations of the earth through supporting and planting local church bodies wherever the Lord would grant us influence. 

God has called CLF to serve as an apostolic base for many church plants.  We desire to reproduce the life that Jesus has given us through church plants in Raleigh, other cities in the United States, and throughout the world. We don’t just send leaders off on their own; we partner with them each step of the way to ensure they are equipped to do God’s work. 

Our first church plant is highlighted below. We are looking forward to many more in the years to come.

Go into the world and make disciples of every nation…
— Matthew 28:19

Tucson, AZ Church Plant

The Markeson family is following the call of God on their lives and recently moved to Tucson to start a church. CLF will be partnering with them as they embark on this new venture.  We will miss them greatly but are very excited to see what God does in Tucson!  Please keep this family in prayer!
