      Great Commission Day Offering

      The theme of Great Commission Day 2017—The Tipping Point—is about The Alliance reaching a critical mass of equipped workers so many more unreached people will meet Jesus.

      In April every Alliance church received a resource kit to promote the Great Commission Day Offering. Additional copies of print and DVD resources are available, while supplies last, from the Alliance Service Center by calling toll-free 1-877-284-3262, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.—4:30 p.m., MST. Digital files may be downloaded below.

      Missions Emphasis 2016-17

      Each year, every Alliance church is mailed a Missions Emphasis Resource Kit. This kit informs you of the missions emphasis as well as provides promotional resources for your church to use.

      The Missions Emphasis theme for 2016–17—Prepare the Way for the Lord—reveals how God is on the move in our world, making a way for people like us to come to Him. He is inviting us to join Him in “preparing a way” for all people to see His salvation. Be sure to check out the Prepare the Way for the Lord theme page.

      Internet Accountability

      With the increasing number of C&MA leaders, pastors, and missionaries facing the allure of Internet pornography, we believe it is vital and strategic that we be “wise as serpents” in protecting Alliance people. Covenant Eyes is a way to accomplish this.

      How it works is simple. A person's Internet usage is tracked and a report of that usage is sent to two accountability partners designated by that user.

      The leaders of Covenant Eyes have agreed to greatly reduced prices for C&MA subscribers. You can access this service by going to and clicking on “Sign up now!” Then follow the instructions. You will come to a place where you can enter one of the promotional codes found in the eCommunity forums giving you the reduced price.
