Meet the Family
About › Family
You’ve heard it said before, but we truly are a family. When Jesus calls us he invites us to join his family. He identifies us as heirs—even co-heirs with Christ.
As you can imagine, keeping a family together can be quite a feat. The Alliance is no exception. From local churches to international workers all over the globe, the influence of The Alliance is vast. Read on to discover how we are connected domestically and globally. We are certain there is a place for you here!
How one governs is the greatest example of what one believes. The U.S. Alliance is governed by The Board of Directors. General Council operates as the legislative body, and the President's Cabinet manages the daily affairs of The Alliance on a national level.
Alliance churches are united in a pattern of geographical districts. Local churches within the Alliance are related to a district conference as well as to the national organization. There are currently 30 districts and seven associations that comprise nearly 2,000 churches with approximately 389,000 members.
Our missionaries and international workers have answered God’s call and have travelled the entire globe. As we seek to share the Good News of Jesus, we are strategically located in five geographic regions—Africa, Asia/ Pacific, Europe/Middle East, Latin America, and North and Central Asia. Take a trip with us to The Alliance World.
The U.S. National Office is made up of five areas of ministry that help oversee the ministry of the C&MA. Executive, Development, International Ministries, Church Ministries, and Operations/Finance all serve members and friends of the Alliance in order to bring back the King.
There are many partners closely affiliated with The Alliance. Ministry groups, youth organizations, women’s and men’s groups, financial institutions and many others are located within this section.
The Alliance believes wholeheartedly in the power and necessity of prayer. We cannot “Live the Call Together” unless prayer is central to all we do—in our denomination, in our churches, and in our individual lives.
You can help build Christ’s Church around the world by donating online to the Great Commission Fund. This central funding vehicle allows our international workers to focus on ministry rather than raising financial support.
