Mission Emphasis
All C&MA Churches are required to conduct an annual missions conference.  Each local church is encouraged to create a year-round missions cllimate where missions is integrated into the life of the church.  

Freedom Tour: WPA churches on this tour arrange the conference and pay all expenses for an international worker to visit their church.
WPA Choice Tour: WPA District seeks international worker families each year to reside in the district as our Choice Tour international workers.  Half-year Choice Tour workers will be initially available to district WPA Choice churches for 10-18 weekends, while full-year workers will be initially available for 28 weekends.

Women in Ministry
Alliance Women support the work The Alliance is doing around the world.  Every year AW carefully and prayerfully choose several mission projects to focus on.  In addition to providing compassionate care and tangible help to suffering and overlooked peoples in these areas, project coordinators and their teams remain fully committed to proclaiming the good news of Jesus to those who have yet to experience  His loving embrace.

We Are Here to Help!
The members of the District Missions Mobilization Team are passionate about the reality that God wants His people to be worshippers and disciples (who in turn repeat the process) around the world.  We also recognize the strategic role of the local church in partnering with God to carry out His mission to all peoples until Jesus returns.
We are here to serve you-the congregations of the Western Pennsylvania District-by helping to raise your level of awareness of, commitment to, and involvement with worldwide evangelism and Disciplemaking.
It is our desire to communicate on a regular basis with missions ministry leaders in the district and help them strengthen their church's missions programming; help churches make a missions lifestyle through year-round programming; recommend helpful missions resources; be available to help you in any way we can.
