CL About

Welcome to CL Online

We hope this online version of the Christian Leader will be a resource for connecting the U.S. Mennonite Brethren family, celebrating our Lord Jesus Christ and cultivating us as his disciples.

CL Online includes many of the regular features found in our print publication, plus it offers you the opportunity to interact with other online readers, CL contributors and the CL editors. The Christian Leader is a 32-page magazine published 6 times a year. The Christian Leader  is offered to every household of the U.S. Conference of MB Churches (current distribution is 10,000) as a benefit of denominational affiliation.

We welcome your participation in this online resource. CL Online is a unique place because our primary aim is to serve the U.S. Mennonite Brethren family. We hope to better connect as we interact with each other about the events, activities, decisions and issues of our spiritual family. We want to celebrate the work and character of our Lord as we share with each other what he is doing in, among and through us. And we hope that the online articles, blogs and essays will cultivate us as his disciples, as understood in the evangelical/Anabaptist tradition.
