Commissioning a Lifestyle of Integrity believes that a sustainable movement of integrity can be created in every nation. A national movement grows one person at a time.
One person can make a difference. Experience reveals that a person of integrity seldom succeeds alone. The quest for integrity requires the empowerment of a community.
Most often a personal resolution to live a lifestyle of integrity will fail, without the help of others. People of integrity benefit from a community that lifts them up, builds them up and keeps them from falling. We function better together.
CLI is committed to assisting every participant in becoming a Person of Integrity. We do so in a variety of ways, but the most significant help comes through small groups we call “cohorts”.
CLI chose the term cohort because of common confusion and misconceptions around the term “small group.” A cohort is a group of people who come together for the purpose of growing in community, learning from each other, and developing integrity through accountability. The cohort functions as your team, your support, and your coach. People grow better together!
By contributing in a cohort, participants quickly discover the empowering influence and value of their group. The cohort moves the individual from information to life application and character transformation. Nothing can diminish personal responsibility for choices and lifestyle, but a cohort experience, together with the CLI Manual, inspires personal decisions.
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 2 Timothy 2:2
