Learn about our Curriculum Modules
Appropriately authentic and engaging, small cohorts of participants move through the foundational modules to become proficient in living victoriously through application of the CLI’s model of Christ-centered growth. By equipping and empowering Christians to grow forward, these cohorts move from feeling depleted, defeated, and discouraged to living as overcomers in Christ’s freedom (Gal. 5:1).

Detoxification focuses on spiritual cleansing. The process involves learning how to identify and release areas of struggle, sin, and strongholds, such as frustrations, bitterness, unforgiveness, and other barriers of the flesh and self (Galatians 5:24). We are equipped with practical tools, such as learning how to deep-dive into oneself and using God’s truth light, another important spiritual tool. We learn to identify the scars, hurts, wounds, and debris of the past and move into current to surrender. We learn to identify intent and motive, and develop skills to fully step into the love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness of God. We begin to find transformative peace and healing in Christ.

Infusion is all about God’s Word as nourishment for our soul, rehydrated through the loving, living water of Christ. We learn to read the Bible cover to cover without “off roading,” as we refer to it at CLI, taking in through the ingestion (intentional, prayerful reading) of God’s Word and its foundational truths (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We learn how to build spiritual core stability through gleaning from God's transforming truths and allowing them to heal us and teach us to live practically, in but not of the world.
In the digestion module, we move from head to heart. We learn how to shift from an intellectual/theological head knowledge of God and the Bible into a circumcised heart attitude (Ezekiel 36:26) of His word to promote healthy digestion of the truth of God’s character and His word (2 Timothy 2:15). Digestion promotes our growth and flourishment as we deeply internalize God’s word for living application - to live Christ in a fallen world. We learn how to appropriate and apply the truths of the Bible in all aspects of life, in but not of the world. Click here for video.
Heart check it is all about our spiritual heart health. We learn to walk and live in the circumcision of the heart (Ezekiel 36:26) and to appropriate and apply the truth of God's word. We are equipped with spiritual tools that equip us to detect and avoid hardness of heart. In heart check, there is a focus on cultivating and growing spiritual heart health so that we can walk in a manner worthy of God in obedience, as God desires, and in accord with the truth of His word. We learn to recognize and respond to temptations and trials through Christ in us.
In faith walk, we learn to be still (Psalm 46:10) and listen for His voice learning how to hear God and walk by faith. We learn to discern God’s promptings through the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit into God’s truth (John 16:13; Psalm 46:10). We learn how to live by faith, through prayerful communication with our Savior, who empowers our walk in Christ daily through the various challenges of life. We learn practical spiritual disciplines and our equipped with the tools to love victoriously as overcomers, in but not of the world. Our emphasis is on stillness and hearing His voice.

In Module 6, we focus on the importance of the Holy Spirit as our helper, guide, and comforter (John 14:26; John 16:13-14). Through the metaphor of the “Holy Spirit Ziplock,” we will develop a strong spiritual immune system that fosters a balanced life of purposeful intentionality to cultivate, preserve, and harness His power and energy in our life (2 Corinthians 1:21-22). We learn how to live in such a way that appropriates His protective care fostering soul care to press-on, preserve, and run the race with endurance in this messy world. Our emphasis is on cultivating meaningful personal prayer, His direction, and His will for us in every decision, every day. We learn to live at the “grain of sand” level.
In our final module, we develop a custom, personal transformative growth plan. This plan integrates the principles and practices of the 6-modules for your functional spiritual wellness where God has placed you, specifically, and what He has placed before you. The emphasis in Module 7 is a practical, applicable way to persevere and overcome in your daily life in Christ in His freedom in a messy world. (Colossians 1:9-10). Our emphasis is on growing forward every day in every way in Christ. Click here for video.
