CLC Update: The new CLC system will launch in summer 2023

This spring, the denomination’s internet-based matching and referral system is finalizing a comprehensive upgrade. Not only will the new system be more efficient, it will also be more inclusive and easier to access.

The improvements to the new CLC System include: 

  • A task-based system instead of a role-based one, allowing calling organizations more flexibility managing tasks involved in hiring a pastor, including an administrator access to help with data entry and other system work
  • Flexible matching criteria, enabling organizations calling a pastor to see applicants for other jobs, such as administrative or chaplain roles
  • Automated information sharing between call seekers and call organizations — in the current system, CLC staff are go-betweens to change candidate statuses
  • Expedited application submission and approval, speeding up a process that used to take days or weeks
  • Easy withdrawal from consideration by candidates instead of needing to notify calling groups individually, and easy notification of decisions to candidates from calling organizations
  • Improved look and user experience, including a dashboard with to-do tasks and notifications from CLC staff
  • EQUIP training videos, available to system users in the coming weeks.

More details about the project can be found HERE
