CLA Missions 2018 | February 4 - 25
CLA Missions rejoices in the remarkable things God is doing as together we support 40 ministry partners and projects around the world and in our community.
This year marks 100 years of existence for the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada and we celebrate our partnership with them in global missions. Through prayer and partnership with the PAOC the Gospel has been proclaimed in 58 countries by 320 workers.
CLA’s 2018 Missions Month focus is AFRICA. This is the world’s least-developed continent with religious differences tearing at its social fabric. We specifically have a long relationship with PAOC workers in Zambia, Ethiopia, and Egypt.
We are grateful for all that God is doing through CLA Missions, our global workers and international partners. Together, we are “joining God in transforming our lives, neighbourhoods, nation and world”.
To God be the Glory!
Ministry Director | Missions
