As CAMC, we see our mission focus for personal transformation to represent Jesus’ example of offering a cup of cold water to those desperately needing a drink. Specifically, this is lived out in the ministries of health and wellness, food security, adequate clothing and shelter, and harm reduction to one’s health and wholeness.
The desired outcome for CAMC is to discover, and develop passionate spiritual disciples who become passionate spiritual leaders. This is realized through a disciple making pathway such as Discipleshift, where intentional discipleship is part of the DNA of every local church.
Leaders are developed through the Lay Academy of Church Excellence (LACE). Here they learn the L3 process of Loving—spiritual formation; Learning—growing one’s leadership capacity; Leading—implementing the learned best practices.
In outreach ministries throughout the conference, churches and outreach centers are impacting their communities for positive change. Through addiction recovery ministry, food security, and community building the love of Jesus is spread throughout the community to children, youth, and adults. The goal of these ministries is not to simply effect one part of the person, but instead to be holistic in the approach towards the community. The community partnerships being built with the churches increases the impact as the residents of these counties work together for the common good.
