Events for Pastors

The CRCNA offers a variety of orientation programs to provide welcome to new pastors and leaders interested in affiliating with the CRCNA:

  • KIM (Korean Institute in Ministry) — a Korean language intensive nine-day seminar held in western Michigan each May. 2015 event overview
  • ELIM (Ethnic Leaders in Ministry) — an English language program where ethnic minority pastors are in the majority.  It is an eight-day seminary, held in western Michigan each fall, patterned after the KIM program. 2019 event overview
  • SLIM (Spanish Language Institute in Ministry) — a Spanish language program, with a curriculum that can be modified for a variety of settings. It covers the same material presented in ELIM and KIM, but in a less intensive fashion, so it can be completed in six 2-3 hour sessions, or 2 full days. Presentation of SLIM is coordinated through the Consejo Latino. 

Each of these programs is coordinated by Resonate Global Mission and the Candidacy Committee. Contact Charles Kim or David Koll for more information.
