The Congregational Vitality & Transformation team (CVT) exists to equip Disciples of Christ leaders in Arizona take bold steps toward fulfilling the mission of Jesus Christ in a time when traditional church structures show declining rates of effectiveness. The CVT will continue to organize a variety of resources and opportunities to help leaders – including, but not limited to, education, training, peer groups, and coaching – all geared toward the Great Commission of making disciples of Jesus Christ and carrying out His mission of compassion and justice in our various communities.
