CLA Dallas 2016
CLA Dallas 2016
April 19 - 21

In 2016 Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) celebrates 40 years of equipping and uniting leaders to transform the world for Christ.

The theme of the Outcomes Conference: CLA Dallas 2016 is “Perspectives.” That perspective is about more than CLA’s journey, it is about where we as Christian leaders and organizations have journeyed together these past 40 years.

In Scripture 40 years is significant and often signifies a generation. During the Outcomes Conference we will celebrate the generation of brave pioneers who have gone before, and look forward to the future generation of steward leaders called to impact the world for Christ over the next 40 years.

The CLA mission continues as we unite to pursue eternal Christ-honoring impact. The 350-plus hours of learning, and dynamic keynote speakers at this conference will equip you to excel as a Christian leader.

Learning Experiences

General Sessions

General Sessions are scheduled throughout the conference. These are the key times when all attendees have an opportunity to gather as one alliance, unite in worship, and learn from the wisdom of highly recognized Christian communicators and thought leaders.

Intensive Training Institute

The Intensive Training Institute (ITI) offers Christian leaders a day of intensive and interactive study that will have an immediate impact on your leadership, and the organizations you serve!

Academy Classes

This intensive academic session offers courses, 12.5 hours each, that allow attendees to go deep on the key issues they face as Christian leaders. This Academy is CLA’s “graduate level” of training, and our most in-depth conference academic experience.


These information-packed workshops, 1.5 hours each, are led by some of America’s leading Christian thought leaders, and are offered in CLA’s eight key categories of lifelong learning.
