General Council 2011

The Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO was the location for the 2011 General Council of The Christian and Missionary Alliance. Dr. Ravi Zacharias, respected Christian apologist, author, and teacher was our keynote speaker.

This was a great opportunity to connect with the national and international family of The Alliance.

From the President

Gary Benedict In 2011, General Council of The U.S. Christian and Missionary Alliance will be held at the Kansas City Convention Center (Bartle Hall) in Kansas City, Missouri. It will be a time of celebration for what God has done and is doing to push back the darkness in the United States and around the world. This gathering of official workers, laypeople and missionaries brings the spectrum of Alliance ministry together for five days to honor and glorify Jesus.

At General Council you’ll be encouraged by the teaching ministry of Dr. Ravi Zacharias and revitalized by uplifting times of worship and prayer.

A unique feature is your opportunity to speak into the future of The Alliance. In the ministry strategy sessions, all accredited delegates have an opportunity to discuss our role in pushing back the darkness in our world.

Join me in Kansas City on May 25–29. You’ll want to be a part of this great congregation from around the world!

Gary Benedict
President of the U.S. C&MA
