Alliance Council 2019

May 28–June 2, 2019

Join the Alliance family as we gather in Orlando, Florida, to celebrate what God is doing in our midst and seek His heart as we move Beyond.

The 2019 Council theme is “Beyond.” I sense the Spirit’s prompting to challenge us to move beyond our current limitations and, more importantly, beyond whatever may be holding us back in our relationship with Jesus. I’m eager to explore together where God is taking us next. Please pray with me that the Holy Spirit’s presence will welcome us as we gather to seek His renewing work within, among, and through us. — John Stumbo, U.S. C&MA President
