For Missions Leaders
Missions Emphasis Resource Kit
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 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.

For much of our history, The Alliance has had at its helm missions leaders of great vision. These visionaries have been casting the vision of global missions and encouraging us, as Jesus did, to Go into all the world and make disciples. Along the way, several have written papers that have been used to aid in spreading the missional heart to all that would hear. Included are several of those papers categorized by the authors.

This series will take your students on the journey of faith that was lived by several key Alliance missionaries. These stories will demonstrate the faith-filled risks taken by these heroes of the faith and will challenge the next generation to do the same.
These Missions Adventures have been created to supply you with just that—a body of work to help you train the kids in your life to love Jesus and fulfill his Great Commission.
Alliance Mission Modules have been crafted to encourage young hearts to bring the good news of Jesus love to the “Unreached People Groups” (UPGs) of this world. Each 75-90 minute module is a unique adventure designed to challenge your students to become passionate about reaching lost people for Jesus.
