On September 15-16, 2023, we had the incredible honor of celebrating 40 years of Kingdom education and training. Our mission has always been to equip spiritually hungry learners with the very best tools to help them discover and fulfill their God-given purpose. Over the past four decades, Christian Life School of Theology Global (CLSTG) has enjoyed the privilege of launching thousands of people worldwide into their calling.
We kicked off our anniversary celebration on Friday night with a time of worship, followed by an invocation from Dr. Jim Bolin, friend of CLSTG and founding pastor of Seven Springs Church, where the event was hosted. Our President, Dr. Randal Langley, shared a special message about the significance of the past 40 years and his vision for the future.
Our founder, Dr. Ron Cottle, was presented with the Founder’s Legacy Award in recognition of his pioneering spirit and leadership. Dr. Langley received the Elisha Award for his excellence and obedience in assuming the mantle of leadership.
The evening concluded with a reception where we had the opportunity to fellowship with guests who traveled from as close as Columbus, Georgia and as far as the Ukraine.
On Saturday, we celebrated nearly 50 graduates who joined the thousands before them who have gone on to change the world. Dr. Langley encouraged our grads with three key pieces of presidential advice, and Dr. Bolin blessed our graduates and guests with an inspirational keynote address.
What a blessing it was to spend the weekend with our CLSTG family and friends. Here’s to the next 40 years of partnering together as we help men and women maximize their Kingdom potential and make Jesus known among the nations!
