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:

Missions Update: Sending Out The Chapman Family [Video]

[fa icon="calendar'] November 12, 2020 / by Karla Tovar posted in Missions

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment


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.

Here at the Central Pacific District, we are happy to announce that Karla Tovar has been appointed to serve as the Missions Mobilizer for the CPD. She is no stranger to the District Office and has had a passion for missions long before she came to us.

Today, she is sharing a video of thanks from our President, John Stumbo. She introduces the video and her vision for missions with the following words:

The Alliance "Thank you" video below reminds me why I have a passion for missions. Since I started my journey with the Lord being part of the Alliance Family has been one of my highest privileges. We are one body that has no boundaries or limits, apprehends no language or color, for we courageously and faithfully share the gospel. We have been freely giving what we have freely received from Him.

Missions Update: Media Ministry in Cambodia

[fa icon="calendar'] May 26, 2020 / by Tim Agnello posted in Missions, Equipping

I'm super excited to be sharing with you this update from my friend Catie who serves in Cambodia! Be encouraged - God is doing great things through our Alliance workers all around the world. Happy reading...


God is Preparing My Ministry 

Last year we started dreaming up me partnering with the national C&MA church (KEC) to help them start a media ministry. We envisioned monthly videos on the work of the church. We envisioned a team of people I would train from all the regions to shoot and edit videos. We envisioned monthly testimonies from believers on ways they've seen God transform their lives and call them to Himself. We envisioned training materials to be shared through social media platforms in ways that would reach the national church and as a form of witness and evangelism to those who do not yet know the gospel.

Missions Vision Trip:  Expanding the Reach of our Hispanic Churches

[fa icon="calendar'] January 6, 2020 / by Edgar Castro posted in Missions

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

In November, a group of Hispanic pastors and leaders of the CPD, guided by Tim Agnello, made a visionary trip to the Island of Cuba.

We arrived in the province of Camaguey. Then, we visited several provinces in central Cuba. We had the pleasure of sharing time with the new President of Alliance Cuba, Liusbel Utrera. We were surprised by the love and desire the church in Cuba has to serve our Lord Jesus Christ.

On the island, there are no evangelical church buildings, only Catholic. So our Alliance people can only meet in house-churches. These house-churches are also the homes of the pastors that have been adapted into churches. Some pastors have to sleep on the floor because there is limited space for them. It was amazing to see the humble dedication of these families. It is a Cuban law that dictates that the church must be carried out on a residential/house property.

Fired-Up Afresh by President John Stumbo's Latest Video

[fa icon="calendar'] September 18, 2019 / by Tim Agnello posted in Missions

[fa icon="comment"] 5 Comments

When a song is super good, it's always worth re-singing, and I have been fired-up afresh by President John Stumbo's latest video blog.

I'm not sure how many of our family members in the CPD actually get his video blog, so I'm sending it out for all of our CPD family to enjoy. As you already know, my heart beats for the folks around planet earth that have little or no access to the Gospel. I know this is the heartbeat of the Alliance as well.

So please join me in re-singing the song of bringing the name of Jesus to those who have never heard. It's both a pleasure and a privilege to be teamed with you for the glory of God and the reaching of the nations!

A Glimpse into the Life of A.B. Simpson [Book]

At Council this year, I purchased A.B.: The Unlikely Founder of a Global Movement, by David Jones. I started reading it by the pool in Orlando and had almost finished it by the time the plane landed back in Sacramento. It is worth reading for those of us in the CM&A family.
