Leadership Team

Lead­er­ship Team chart (pdf)

A small core team and a diverse group of consultants help shape and nurture the direction of the Alliance, participate in key networks and partnerships, and provide accountability. These leaders live and serve in Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe.

The Alliance leadership desire to be reflective practitioners, reliant on God for discernment and direction as they lead through example and influence. They seek to ensure that the Alliance provides a welcoming environment in which many voices can be heard, grace is abundant and God is glorified.
