…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8
One of the ways we work to fulfill the Great Commission at First Alliance is through our Partnership Ministries. We have partnerships both close to home and on the other side of the world. Through these partnerships the people in our congregation are able to take the weight of their kingdom influence and wield it in a place where thy might never be able to go.

Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa
FATEAC is an Alliance Seminary located in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. The mission has been clear from the beginning: contribute to the blossoming of an authentic Christianity in contemporary Africa by giving students a solid biblical and theological education to prepare them for diverse evangelical ministries while keeping in mind African realities. Our church took a collection to help build a second dormitory at the school, so more students could take advantage of living on campus and experience Christian community. We plan to continue to help support the growth of this school.
