Jesus taught us that His church would include all nations, languages, and cultures. The Christian & Missionary Alliance puts great value in its international identity, and we reflect that locally here at CMA Morgantown.
HOPE is a ministry to Internationals living in Morgantown. Weekly gatherings on Friday nights throughout the WVU academic year and events throughout the summer provide an opportunity to share a free meal together, meet new people, explore answers to life’s questions from the Bible, and improve English skills.
Each year CMA Church holds a Global Missions Conference with special missionary guest speakers, churchwide fellowship opportunities, and a chance to engage with the Christian & Missionary Alliance’s work around the world. This year’s Global Missions Conference will be from September 18-25.
We are affiliated with two sister churches here in Morgantown, each with their own active and independent congregations. Find out more about the CMA Chinese Church and the CMA Korean Church.
The Perspectives Course on World Missions is a 15-week journey looking in-depth at the biblical, historical, cultural, and strategic aspects of God’s global plan to reconcile every nation, tribe, people, and tongue to Himself. Students learn from over 15 different instructors who will challenge and inspire with their wisdom and experience, opening eyes to a deeper vision of God’s mercy, greatness, and love. We will be hosting the 2nd Perspectives Course at CMA Church starting in late August of 2022.
Brent’s first career was in forestry, and he became a believer while working in the mountains of North Idaho. His career path led him to an Alliance church in Prattville, AL, where he was baptized, discipled, and felt God’s call to missionary service.
While completing educational requirements for missionary service at Crown College of the CMA, he met his wife Lisa, and soon after marrying they pursued God’s call to cross-cultural ministry with the Pueblo Indian nations in New Mexico. After a decade of church-planting ministry in the Pueblos, they transitioned to overseas service and spent the next decade in missionary service in Mongolia. Due to health issues they were not able to remain in Mongolia and were redeployed to Paraguay. Unfortunately, the health issues pesisted and the Liberdas had to leave Paraguay and transition to stateside ministry. Fortunately, this change brought them to CMA Church. Pastor Brent oversees Missions, Outreach Ministries, and Community Groups. He and Lisa are delighted have the opportunity to serve and to be part of this church family!
