                Rationale for CLRC
 Biblical
     – Centrality of church in God’s plan     (Mt 28:19-20; Eph
        3:10-11…)

     – Importance of qualified spiritual leaders      (Eph
        4:11-12; 1 Ti 3:1-12; 2 Ti 2:2…)

     – Need for continuous training (1 Ti 4:7-8)
     – Need for genuine and disciplined fellowship
        (He 10:24-25…)

     – Need for personal renewal / refreshment          (Ex
        20:8-11; Mk 6:31…)

            Rationale for CLRC (cont.)
 Critical needs / phenomena in majority of NA Chinese
  churches
     – Leadership crisis
     – Lack of teamwork/Internal conflicts
     – Limited impact on the community
 Significant trends
     – Growth of Mainland Chinese population worldwide and their
       gospel receptivity coupled with explosive Church growth within
       China
     – China becoming a world power and its increasingly open policy
       by the government
     – The urgent need to pass the baton from last generation spiritual
       leaders to the current

            Rationale for CLRC (cont.)
 Historical /cultural factors
     –   Small size / independent nature of an average church
     –   Lack of systematic training for average lay leaders
     –   Diverse and complex multi-ethnic and sub-cultures
     –   Low priority for leadership development by
         overworked pastors/leaders
     –   Certain Chinese subculture / tradition orientation
     –   Influence of secular professionalism
     –   Faulty concepts of pastor’s role
     –   Adaptation of immigrant pastors from older generation
