Bob and Dian Harner, Missions Mobilizers
For 20 years (1987-2008), we were C&MA missionaries to Guinea, West Africa. Our passion for missions continues to be expressed through our role as missions mobilizers. We want to help you and your church discover the ways God wants to use you, as part of the Christ-centered Acts 1:8 family that is the Alliance, to intentionally and aggressively advance His Kingdom not only within the borders of our district, but beyond, even to the ends of the earth. We believe that a healthy heartbeat for missions will naturally result in generous participation in the Great Commission Fund, as well as in missions-focused action such as raising up and sending out missionaries from your congregation, strategic prayer for those serving overseas and the lost among whom they serve, and participation in short term missions trips, missions projects and international partnerships.
Presentations – The Harners can give formal or informal presentations to your entire congregation, small groups, committees, adults, youth or children in a variety of formats: Sunday morning messages, mini missions conferences, banquets, panel discussions, question and answer times, seminars, etc.
Consulting – The Harners would love to meet with you and your board or missions committee to evaluate and enhance your missions effectiveness, brainstorm, share ideas or provide resources.
Training – The Harners can provide small group training sessions on how to set up a missions committee, taking adults on missions trips, involving children and youth in missions, etc.

Outfit Fund: International Workers
The Central District Women's Ministries asks each church to generously give $400 (includes admin fees) each year to bless our International Workers with the finances to help set up their homes as they return to their field of service. The Giving Calendar found under resources lets you know when to send in various amounts. Contact Carol Beal with any questions.
Third Culture Kids
Imagine your children growing up far away from their family and friends, and adjusting to a foreign culture. We want to bless our International Workers by caring for their children. By "adopting" a Third Culture Kid (TCK) you can pray for them, remember them at birthdays and Christmas, and foster an ongoing relationship that will make a difference in their lives. Contact Berhline Rose for more information.
