Events › General Council 2013
Join the Alliance Family in Tampa, Florida on June 11-16, 2013, for a chance to reconnect with old friends, learn from one another, and celebrate all God has done and continues to do!
Welcome 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!
President, U.S. C&MA
Hear how The Alliance is currently shining the Light in some of the world’s darkest places and what our next chapter of ministry will look like in an ever-changing world.

The Alliance believes wholeheartedly in the power and necessity of prayer. We cannot “Live the Call Together” unless prayer is central to all we do—in our denomination, in our churches, and in our individual lives.
You can help build Christ’s Church around the world by donating online to the Great Commission Fund. This central funding vehicle allows our international workers to focus on ministry rather than raising financial support.
Is God calling you to full-time service? Do you want to participate in a short-term missions trip and experience missions work firsthand? We’re here to help you connect your passion with God’s purpose.
