General Council 2011

“In the many Councils I’ve attended, I have never heard such a clear and clarion call for the Church to arise and renew its mission to BE LIGHT.” — a Council 2013 Attendee

Didn’t make it to Tampa? Here are some highlights:

  • Main speaker Rev. Samuel Rodriguez led the charge to re-awaken the Church to its “BE LIGHT” mission. Read more about Sammy and the other Council speakers.
  • Powerful times of Spirit-soaked worship prompted attendees to go deeper in their expressions of adoration, praise, and obedience to their King.
  • Dynamic seminars ranging from healing and holiness to leader coaching and church health equipped attendees with tangible tools for life and ministry.
  • Warm greetings spontaneously erupted as old acquaintances were rekindled and new friendships forged at this “biggest-of-all” Alliance family reunion.
  • President-elect Dr. John Stumbo accepted God’s call and Council’s resounding confirmation to serve as the 12th president of the C&MA. View all election results.
