This month we are going to focus on what is happening within the Christian & Missionary Alliance Family around the world and how we can be a part of what God is doing through His Church. This year’s Missions Emphasis theme is Regions Beyond. God is forging new pathways to people groups who still have little to no chance of hearing the gospel—and He is calling the Alliance family to follow Him to regions beyond.
What's Happening in January - February
We have the honor of welcoming international workers from Central Asia this month! Telling the story of Jesus' redeeming work in their own lives, and what God is doing in Asia, has been their focus during this past year in the States. There will be several opportunities to hear them tell of what God is doing in their mission field and how Citylight can partner well with them:
The Great Commission Fund
Giving to the GCF is one of the best ways for you to participate in fulfilling God’s plan—providing all peoples, in every segment of society, the opportunity to encounter His beloved Son, Jesus. Unique to The Alliance, this funding system underwrites a vast majority of the ministries of our more than 700 international workers and U.S. church planters, empowering them to focus on their callings.
