A Note from Pastor Shane

Christian Life Assembly is committed to investing in the next generation of church leaders. We are taking the next step of blending mentoring with an affordable, academic program from an accredited university – Southeastern University. Our students learn both experientially and in the classroom as they prepare for their future careers.

We provide an outstanding college education while helping students develop personally and spiritually, while building a solid foundation for a ministry career. There is nothing more exciting than someone who discovers their calling and pursues it fully under the leadership of the Church.

As Ephesians 4:12 declares, “to equip God’s people to do his work....”

I am thrilled to invite you to join the journey with us here!

Shane Wilson, Lead Pastor

About Southeastern University

The mission of Southeastern University is to equip students to discover and develop their divine design to serve Christ and the world through Spirit-empowered life, learning and leadership. We don’t confine that mission to our main campus in Lakeland, Florida, and have established partnerships around the country to reach students where they live and work. These sites extend the Christ-centered culture of Southeastern University and develop leaders who will impact their communities.
