Congrats Newest CCNL

Congrats Newest CCNL

The General Conference Stewardship Ministries Department wishes to congratulate Johnetta B. Flomo for becoming the newest Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) in the department. She began this journey in September 2015 and completed it in March 2017. Johnetta’s studies covered a wide range of organizational leadership topics, such as Biblical Foundations of Executive Leadership (Foundation of the Steward Leader), Executive Leadership/Board Governance (the Steward Leader and His or Her Influence), Stewardship (the Servant Leader/Accountability), Relationship (Building your Brand), True-faced Leadership (Humility/Trust/Finding Identity in Christ), and Lead Like Jesus (the Godly Servant Leader).

The Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) program is offered by the Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) in collaboration with the Azusa Pacific University College. It is designed to promote biblical stewardship and leadership principles in Christian nonprofit organizations. CLA is an interdenominational organization that serves Christian Faith-based ministries and nurtures fundraising and stewardship efforts.

There are two ways one can become a CCNL. One could opt to earn their CCNL points via the annual CLA Outcomes Conference, or he or she can enroll in the CLA Outcomes Academy (online). The CCNL credential is renewable every three years and counts toward six of the 36 credits needed to obtain a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Leadership at York College.

While Johnetta may someday choose to pursue a Masters in Organizational Leadership, she looks forward to completing her Masters of Professional Studies in Publishing with emphasis on Design and Technology (digital publishing).
