MISSIONS EMPHASIS 2020-2021
God is inviting the U.S. Alliance family into “the unfinished”—that sacred space where He is weaving your church’s unfinished journey together with the unfinished stories of those who do not yet know Him, and the unfinished mission He has called us to help complete together.
