EMBRACING CENTRAL REGION MANDATE, CULTURAL CORE, VALUES, AND OUTCOMES

Please review the shared MANDATE and CULTURAL CORE of the Central Region of the C&MA:

The Central Region of the Alliance is made up of 9 districts and 3 ethnic associations.  In our region there are around 170,000 people in over 600 C&MA churches.  What if we worked together?  What if the King gave us all the same burden, same dream, and same expectations?  What kind of impact could we have together for the advancement of the kingdom?  Here is what we share –

Shared MANDATE – to tenaciously pursue the evangelization of 80 plus million people and the discipleship of the responsive.

Shared STRATEGIES –

  • Create an infectious and effective culture around a core of Divine expectation and engagement, Disciplemaking, Leadership development, Mobilized ministries, and Church planting.

  • Implementation of pipelines that utilize the process of Discover, Develop, and Deploy.

  • Utilization of Greenhouse Environments – which are intentional environments that catalyze the holistic development and strategic deployment of emerging leaders call to great Kingdom impact.

  • Partnerships with District initiatives that help the region achieve its shared mandate and outcomes.

 

Are you willing to engage in the effort of the entire region around these shared convictions?
