Leadership

Strategic Drivers

Culture, Nurture, and Venture are the three key strategic drivers of our work at The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada. Click on the videos below to learn more about what we really mean when we refer to Culture, Nurture, Venture and how these impact our everyday work and mission as a family of churches.

Our President

Rev. Dr. David Hearn’s passion is to see The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada as a Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, and Mission-focused movement. A.B. Simpson declared, “This movement stands for a spirit of self-sacrifice, adjustment, adaptation and single-hearted love for people. We are called to a spirit so possessed with one supreme object, to gain men and women for Christ, that it sweeps over every other consideration in its overmastering purpose of love.”

 
 

General Assembly

General Assembly is the governing body of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada. When General Assembly gathers every two years, discernment and decisions are made for the following reasons:

  • Advancing the mission and vision of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada.
  • Evaluating the progress of the ministries of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada.
  • Electing officers, transacting business, and enacting denominational policies.
  • Providing opportunities for worship, fellowship, spiritual renewal, inspiration to greater service, and the development of ministry skills.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is the executive body of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada and is responsible for its administration in accordance with the General operating Bylaw. It ensures that decisions made by General Assembly are properly executed.

Board meetings consist of prayer, interaction with the President, deliberation, and planning.

The Board is comprised of 13 members; at the time of election there must be at least one member from each District, one member who is an international worker, the President, and the balance who are elected without reference to their District of residence.

The Board of Directors is comprised of people with diverse stories, backgrounds, experiences, and a passion for the C&MA in Canada.
