Scholarship Saturday – Meet Eric
Eric Carpenter and his family live in Kansas City, MO. He and his wife, Terry, have been married for eight years. Four years ago, God called them to plant a church with another family. Through the process of pastoring this church in downtown Kansas City, and going through the pandemic in 2020, they desired to benefit the church in another way. God opened the door for Eric to get training in counseling through Crown College. He hopes to graduate from this program in the next two years and continue with full-time pastoral ministry.
Eric states, “I am thankful for Alliance Women. I have received a forgivable loan through past gifts from Alliance Women to multicultural ministries. My future hope is to serve the church well through one-on-one counseling, marriage counseling, and whatever else is necessary to grow healthy disciples in our Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family.”
In the summer of 2022, the Multicultural Ministries Office (MCM) of Church Ministries began hosting leadership development cohorts for Next-Gen leaders selected from the U.S. C&MA’s ethnically based districts (4) and associations (10). They desire to see younger, ethnic leaders prepared to serve God in The Alliance. The cohorts will meet three times during an 18-month period. Each cohort meeting will be in the format of a three-day retreat.
Alliance Women has set a goal to raise $25,000 to cover the expenses of one retreat. To participate in giving, visit www.alliancewomen.org/give.
We also encourage your prayer support. Please be praying for the MCM Next-Gen Leadership Cohort participants and instructors.
