Neal Whitlow, bi-vocational pastor and CSFL graduate

I’ve had an inkling for a while that what God’s people really need is fewer church growth strategies and more soul growth opportunities, less business acumen and more wisdom revealing how the words of Jesus take root in our hearts. Not only does the Master’s in Christian Spiritual Formation and Leadership program take seriously our dire need for deeper discipleship practices, as a bi-vocational pastor, I can also attest that it delivers high-level instruction combined with exceptional value and a realistic pace that can fit even into a busy schedule. This was the program I was waiting for.
