John Stumbo’s Call to the Alliance Family

  • Where Are We? Where Are We Going? Part 1

    During the Wednesday morning session (May 27), John described his two-year journey in seeking to define this movement we call The Alliance—“a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family.” Rather than a tagline, he explained that this descriptor is a foundation from which to begin an ongoing conversation within our denomination about how God is summoning us to “love, proclaim, reach, and launch” together in response to a needy world. “This is who we are, and you have a key role in this mission,” he concluded.

  • Where Are We? Where Are We Going? Part 2

    In his Thursday morning address (May 28), John shared sobering statistics from recent decades revealing lost Alliance ministry opportunities, both at home and abroad, due to downward trends in Great Commission Fund church giving. “Will we again rise to fulfill our calling as a missionary-sending church—taking Jesus’ love to the neediest places on the planet?” he asked. “This can be a historic moment for us, an eternity-shaping moment for people all across the globe if we rise to this challenge.”
