If you missed our Live Event, watch it here!

On Saturday, January 30th, 2021 our Central Pacific District family attended our CPD Online Event: This Divine Moment.

It was a wonderful time of offering vision, hope and courage to our leaders, workers and teams both pastoring and pioneering in such unprecedented times.

Tim Hawkins, along with worship leaders from other Alliance churches, led us in worship. Our speaker and District Superintendent Wayne Spriggs shared a timely word for our district family from John 17 and led us in communion together.

Members of our district shared prayers from John 17 focused on a heart of Unity, in languages represented across our district. What a beautiful picture of the body of Christ, coming together in a unified heart.  

We are so thankful for each of the members of our district. We pray unity and blessings on you, your families, and your church families.

Missions Update: Sending our IW team to Taiwan

[fa icon="calendar'] December 11, 2020 / by Karla Tovar posted in Missions

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The Central Pacific District is proud to announce that Jason and Andi are transitioning to serve in the Taiwan field. We commissioned them at Encounter in Hawaii, early in 2020, and now they will be in Taiwan in January 2021!

The CPD will continue to pray, support, and care for them no matter where they are; as Jason and Andi wrote, “Our Lord has gathered His armies from four corners of the earth to fight for the end.” They are confident that the Lord is their provider and their CPD family will continue to support them.

Their Prayer Letter and Prayer Requests are posted on the main CMAlliance.com website. Here is a part of their letter below:

Thanksgiving Message from Your DS [Video]

Thanksgiving Message from your DS

We're entering into a wonderful season of the year, the season of Thanksgiving. And I was reminded as I was preparing for this talk to you today that the scriptures tell us,

"In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." (1 Thess 5:18)

You see, that's where our Thanksgiving belongs. That's where our Thanksgiving is rooted. It's in Christ Jesus. And it's concerning you. It's concerning your friends. It's concerning people who are not yet followers of Jesus Christ. It's concerning the people in your church. It's concerning the people of our world, where our IWs are seeking to reach them with the good news of Jesus Christ.

And so I want to express my thanks to you as members of the CPD family.

Missions Update: Sending Out The Chapman Family [Video]

It is a pleasure and a privilege to introduce the Chapman Family.  They are our CPD International Workers with CAMA Services, the relief and development arm of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. They will be serving in Guinea, West Africa, with the Guinea Agro-Pastoral (GAP) Project.

“Their vision is to see rural Guinea farmers trained so that they can be more productive farmers who are able to use local resources to help themselves and their communities. In addition to becoming more productive farmers, they can also have opportunities to meet Jesus Christ -- the one who can give TRUE fullness of life and peace!”

Isn’t that encouraging to read? CPD family, I encourage to love, support, and pray for Timothy, Jessica, Elliot, and the new baby! They are one of us fulfilling the Great Commission.

Enjoy the Chapman Family's video as they seek prayer and financial support for their adventure.

Focusing on Christ During Challenging Times [Video]

August Message from your DS

During these days when things are not what they should be and maybe not what you would like them to be and certainly not what they've been, my encouragement to you lay leaders and pastors and CPD family, is to use this again as an opportunity to know Christ.

Let's focus on the Christ who came and the Christ who will come again, the Christ, who is our holiness, who is our sanctifier.

Let's increasingly get to know Him.

It's in Him that we live and move and have our being. This is our opportunity during these days. This is our privilege during these days.

I am happy to highlight two of our recent workers in my blog this month. Paige Reddick Morris was ordained the Sunday after Encounter in Hawaii this year. Hou Lei was ordained on June 27th complete with the proper COVID protections.

I asked each of them to share a short biography so we all could get to know them better. So proud of the accomplishments of these members of the CPD family!

Blessings,
Mike Mitchum
