10 Takeaways from my first C&MA Board of Directors Meeting

Posted by Ralph Trainer , 28 October 2011 - - - - - - · 1352 views

1. Be Light! Seems to me that the light that shines the furthest shines the brightest at home! It was awesome to see again the brilliant ministry of Allegheny Center Alliance Church. Talk about "pushing back the darkness..."

2. Prayer IS our first work. We paused to pray A LOT! I loved that! And A.W. Tozer was right when...

My First Tattoo

Posted by Mel Hendrickson , 11 October 2011 - - - - - - · 2031 views

I'm really close to getting my first tattoo. I've known what I've wanted for several years, but didn't want to jump too quickly into a permanent inking to my body! But hopefully soon I will be able to read the words, "On earth as it is in heaven," on my arm. It has become my life mantra. No, more than my life mantra, these...

Since Converge January 2011

Missions
I would like to share some cool things the Lord has been doing in and around mission/ministry life at Moses Lake Alliance Church (MLAC) in Washington state. At the time of Converge January 2011 in Colorado Springs, we were praying about and developing several dimensions to our missions program. Our time at Converge greatly helped add to what we had been...

UNLESS...

Posted by Sarah Bourns , 10 September 2011 - * * * * - · 1320 views

My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus--the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. --Acts 20:24

How often do we consider that our lives really are “worth nothing” to us—or to God—unless they are used for finishing His task?

Like Solomon, have we come to...

3 Great Commission Barriers

Mission, Missions and 3 more...
Matthew 28:19 says: "Go and make disciples of all nations". If this verse is to have any authority on those of us who follow Jesus than before we do anything else we must GO. So many of us in the Alliance focus on the all nations portion of this verse and this is good. We see the evidence of this focus all over our globe as we consistently...

Running with a Mission

Posted by Angela Sawtell , 26 August 2011 - * * * - - · 1101 views

Recently I've been introduced to a whole new world- the world of running. I've never liked running. In fact, for the greater portion of my life, I can say that I have been avidly opposed to it. Seriously, how could someone actually enjoy just pounding their feet on the pavement mile after mile? Don't they get bored? Not to mention those crazy...

Pelo Amor de Deus! For the Love of God!

missions, immigrants
My passport is blue. My foreign-born son has a green passport. He was in 2nd grade, at school studying in a 2nd language, when his vocabulary list included the word, 'xenofobia'. I had to look up the word! Xenophobia is the fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign (Webster).

Is this a problem in...

The World Came to My Doorstep

missions, friends
My three daughters have had a very different upbringing than I did. I lived at the same address until my second year of grad school. The longest time my girls spent in one house is 4 years in a row (the length of a term of missionary service), and each has experienced at least 10 moves and 2-3 different countries before graduating high school. I...

Does Jesus have to change?

Posted by Bill , 24 July 2011 - * * * * * · 1284 views

I frequently hear, typically from a semi-freaked out person in my age cohort (read older), how instant access to information and the use of technology, primarily for communication, is changing their world too quickly. I find myself sharing that thought on occasion but I wonder how long one has to live in this current environment to get used to this pace. I...

Can it really be true?

missions
It doesn't take a lot to make me stop and ask this question, especially when I travel the many countries of the Alliance's new North and Central Asia Region. This is a place where for long centuries almost everyone has grown up an adherent of a major world faith that doesn't introduce them to Jesus.

Can it really be true? Can all these...

God-Appointments

Posted by Don Sappington , 06 June 2011 - - - - - - · 888 views

Have you ever said, "Whoo - that was amazing! That was a God-appointment."? I have. I am thinking of a time when someone stepped into my week and spoke a word of wisdom and encouragement to me. Just the right word, at just the right moment in time! I recall times when I have been that person in the life of another; I was...
