Welcome to Tampa!

A message from President Benedict

It has been my privilege to serve as president of The Alliance for more than seven years and my joy to participate in a number of significant events. I believe General Council 2013 will be a “don’t miss” experience for the Alliance family.

We’ll gather in Tampa, Florida, June 11-16, 2013, for one of the most important Councils in recent years. In addition to celebrating 125 years of Alliance ministry, the revised and updated edition of All for Jesus, the story of The Alliance, will be released. Also, delegates will elect the next president of the U.S. Christian and Missionary Alliance and pass the baton to the next generation of leadership.

For six days, we will celebrate what God has done through The Alliance, enjoy challenging messages from Rev. Samuel Rodriguez and others, and speak into the future of our denomination. You’ll find encouraging and stimulating times of worship, prayer, and fellowship as you join pastors, international workers, and laypeople from around the world. We’ll hear how the Light is being taken to the darkest places on our planet and learn to be light in our spheres of influence.

Join me in praying for the influence of God’s Spirit as we meet in Tampa in June 2013. You won’t want to miss this gathering!

Gary Benedict
President, U.S. C&MA
