Claritas Program – Croix-Rousse Church

L’Église Évangélique de la Croix-Rousse (EECR) was founded in 2018 after a group of Christians envisioned a church in the neighborhood of la Croix Rousse in Lyon, France. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the church officially began in June 2020. Rooted in the Gospel, EECR aims to radiate as an authentic community and impact Lyon and beyond. The church started with small gatherings, evolved into regular services, and now seeks to plant churches across Lyon while aspiring to send missionaries both in France and worldwide. As part of our journey to train-up leaders, EECR has developed a training program called “Claritas”.

The Claritas program blends biblical and theological training opportunities with real life ministry experience in the EECR community. The purpose of this program is to develop leaders in character, conviction and competency. Through membership and ministry in the local church, participants will be shaped in character by applying the gospel to every aspect of life and growing in holiness (the heart: being). Claritas participants will develop in biblical conviction by growing in their identities as learners and disciples (the mind: knowing). With these foundations, participants will grow in ministry competency and fruitfulness by assuming a posture of service and mission within the community (the hands: doing).

The Claritas focus is not so much on each participant’s productivity throughout the year, but on him or her being shaped for a lifetime of fruitfulness in life and ministry. The desire is to start small, go deep, dream big and finish well. As we aim to grow this program, in 2024, the Croix-Rousse Evangelical Church in Lyon is raising up two leaders who will be blessed by your support and generosity.
