James 1:17-27

How do we welcome God’s word into our lives?  The book of James tells us that we have to hear it and act on it.  Hearing alone is not enough.  Through continual hearing, study, and practical application of the Word, it gets planted deep in our being, informing all that we do, if we allow it.

Ministry with the Poor

 Camp Sumatanga

Ministry with the Poor is one of the four conference-wide priorities in North Alabama. The Ministry with the Poor Operational Team has a vision that every church in the North Alabama Conference will be engaged with a community of need. The team will guide the Conference to live into this vision by discovering, developing, and deploying spiritual leaders (both lay and clergy) who will build effective ministries with the poor.

To that end, the Ministry with the Poor Operational Team has partnered with the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) to provide training opportunities for people in the North Alabama Conference who are sensing a call to ministry with the poor.

The Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) is a network of Christians and churches committed to seeing people and communities wholistically restored. They have a proven track record of highly effective ministries with the poor that will be an invaluable resource for the North Alabama Conference. The first training opportunity in North Alabama will be a CCDA intensive on Saturday, August 29 from 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Camp Sumatanga. The cost will be $15 and includes lunch. Scholarships are available upon request. For more information contact Lewis Archer at lewis.archer@umcna.org.

Our mission is to BECOME more deeply committed disciples, SERVE as disciples, and MAKE disciples of Jesus Christ.
