Help Youth Live Christian Science and Share it with the World

The National Leadership Council (NLC) is a multi-year leadership program for Christian Science teens dedicated to fostering spiritual growth, leadership qualities and a service approach to life. We believe this program helps to cultivate a life-long love for living Christian Science and a desire to share it with the world, as well as a natural sense of giving – as individuals, church participants and contributors to a wider community.

NLC Class Leaders are integral to this program, acting as primary guides for 20 students and their Mentors through the four years. Class Leaders act as role models; create a supportive community of teens, Mentors and parents; teach the NLC curriculum; guide summer trips; and facilitate all class communications and monthly conference calls.

Together we can achieve our mission of “Opening Windows to God” for Christian Science youth, adults and families. We look forward to partnering with you!

We lived Christian Science as we started each day [of our Adventure Trip] with a focus and meaningful discussion of a Beatitude. This experience helped us all understand the true meaning of the Sermon on the Mount and see its living examples in our lives.
