In wanting to always provide fresh resources to our pastors and missions leaders here in the CPD, I am pleased to give you some new tools for promoting Alliance Missions in your churches - all year long!

First, in addition to the many videos provided here, we now have access to many one-minute missions videos of our work around the world. To access these videos click here to see Alliance Snap Shots.

If increased engagement is the goal for Alliance global missions promotion, how do we measure it? The following five elements may be considered as indicators of engagement:

Diamonds in the Rough

Living open-handedly with our time, talents, and dreams is like a diamond in the rough -- from the outside it can seem unsightly, of questionable worth and a gamble at the very least. But once we uncurl our fingers and our hearts unto the Lord- - where all He has given us is freely offered back to Him -- what freedom, what joy, and what power of His presence is manifested in our lives!

It has been amazing to see the response to Alliance Global Missions over the past couple of years. In 2016 alone, I have taken over 20 CPD churches on Vision Trips to Mexico, The Middle East and to Cambodia. How wonderful that so many of you are engaging in meaningful ways financially and by sending teams to work alongside our IWs on the field!

Just south of the border is a cross-cultural, missions experience for the churches of the CPD to “get your feet wet” in missions. Over the past few years we have been developing a Ministry Base in Mexicali. We are now extending invitations for senior pastors, youth pastors and church missions leaders/teams to come and see what is happening there.

I just returned from Cambodia. 

Why I didn’t go: It wasn’t for the climate – I prefer cooler, drier air.

It wasn’t for all the natural and manmade wonders – though they are amazing.

It wasn’t for the long flight times and change in diet.

Why did I go?

What Are Our Missions Initiatives?

District Initiatives are intentional connection points around the world that assist our churches in doing Global Missions

When a people group lacks gospel access, it can be given to them only by someone from the outside of that group. But this kind of “outsider access” is not the end goal. When gospel access is brought by outsiders, the end goal is to see it transition to “insider access.”

How to Choose a Global Partnership

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 1, 2016 9:00:00 AM / by Tim Agnello posted in Better Together, Missions

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Some of our pastors have been asking me lately, "Tim, how does my church choose a global partner?"  I usually start by asking a couple of questions, like:

"Do you know any Alliance workers already that you would like to connect with or support?"

"Do you already have a place or region of the world in mind where the Alliance is working that you would like to connect with or go see?"

The Story That Left Our Hearts in San Francisco

A story helps to paint a picture. It invites you on a journey, and it’s always full of twists and turns. As a HOUSE we love to hear stories. Whether it’s meeting someone for the first time and hearing the story of how they came to San Francisco, the stories represented within our own church family and being encouraged by all the amazing things God is doing behind the scenes, or even a good story from a complete stranger talking about their own personal journey through the good, the bad, the ugly. There is something powerful that takes place when we share them.

 

Craig and I have attempted to write down our story. It helps us to remember where we came from, why we started, and serves as a healthy reminder of what God has done and will continue to do.
