Resources to help you engage in missions both locally and globally

Engaging Globally

  • To find out about how to become an International Worker yourself head here: Send Me!
  • Check out Global Ministries for more information on how our denomination engages globally
  • For missional and innovative young adults wanting to learn more about strengthening communities of faith check out Envision Canada. 

  • The Alliance in Canada is preparing a new mission pathway for Alliance people to live out their life in Christ in the context of their professional lives around the world. Especially in places where there is little to no access to Jesus. Through a partnership with Scatter Global, you will be able to find work around the world in your professional arena.  Check out our MARKETPLACE Initiative:

Engaging Locally

  • Listen to the New Waters Podcast, a genuine conversation about where we’re finding ourselves as the church in Canada and how we sense God calling us to be the church of the future.
  • Watch videos telling the stories of what New Ventures is learning across Canada.
  • If you feel called to launching a new community of faith in Canada, consider a New Ventures Apprenticeship.

Engaging BOTH Locally and Globally

  • Seamless Links: Connecting our Local Churches with the Global Ministries of our International Workers.  Seamless Link Covenants have become an increasingly helpful way for our churches to get involved in the ministries that our Global Advance Fund supports through the work of our IW’s on the field. Partnering with our own International Workers in these covenants connects the Local Church to missions and least-reached people groups all around the world!

Church Promotional Material

  • To stay connected and hear stories of God’s work happening all around the world check out On Mission Together where you can read the latest blogs and sign up for more incredible stories from our IW’s.
  • Discover how the C&MA is reaching least-reached people groups around the world.
  • Check out the Jaffray Project which is a fundraising initiative focused on helping us bringing access to Jesus where few or none have heard the Good News.

  • The Global Advance Fund is what makes it possible for us to fulfill our global ministries mandate.

Our Monthly International Workers PRAYER CARDS are sent out to our Local Churches to help encourage, connect and support the work our IW’s are doing all throughout the 4S regions. This resource is meant to be distributed to anyone wanting to cover our IW’s in prayer!

Educational:

  • The Kairos Course. God, the Church and the World! To see the whole Church mobilized for cross-cultural mission to the world’s least-reached peoples.

  • The Global Vault
  • Ambrose University  Ambrose University prepares men and women for wise, joyful and redemptive engagement in the church through excellent Christian post- secondary education. At Ambrose, students can study arts, sciences and theology alongside professional disciplines such as education, business and Christian ministry.
