The Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination has a vibrant group of international and stateside workers.
The purpose of the missions committee at Northbrook Alliance is to keep the congregation informed about the ministries and prayer needs of these individuals as well as other Christian ministries. This is accomplished in several ways:
- Prayer needs are shared in Sunday church bulletins, and an Alliance missionary is highlighted each month.
- Video clips about international work are viewed during some Sunday services.
- Information from the “Voice of the Martyrs” website is shared periodically on Sunday mornings.
- Church members who have had international mission experiences are encouraged to share these with the congregation.
- Northbrook highlights three ministries during the year that have strong ties to the church (Timberbay Ministries, CAMA Services and Outpost Ministries).
- The annual missions conference is held in the fall each year. We welcome an Alliance international worker and plan several activities over a 5-day period. These activities give the congregation an opportunity to get to know the international worker personally and to learn more about vital work being accomplished around the world.
