Founder's Message

One plants and another waters, but it is God Who gains the increase. Let us build God’s Kingdom together.

This sentiment expresses the deep and sincere hope that all of us at Christian Vision Alliance (CVA) share, and it is this. Each of us, as members of the Body of Christ, serve in different ways, but all with one goal, of bringing the lost to faith in Jesus Christ and encouraging and disciplining them into a deeper and more intimate relationship with Him. We at Christian Vision Alliance seek to serve those on the front lines who have a vision in their own unique way to accomplish this Great Commission. Our goal is to enable the Ministry Entrepreneur to bring his or her Gospel Centered Ministry idea to life-easily and quickly. We want to empower, encourage, and equip those who are planting and those who are watering to fulfill their God ordained calling. If we want to see Christians freed to pursue their calling, we should remove every barrier possible allowing people to put their effort where their hearts and minds are, doing the work of ministry. Making it easier for you to get your ministry started is where Christian Vision Alliance comes in. CVA’s aim is to provide you a non-profit covering, enabling you to reach out and secure the necessary tax-deductible support from folks who love what you are doing. Whether you have been in ministry for years or are just getting started, fiscal sponsorship through CVA enables you to get your idea off the ground. So, I invite you to take the next step by completing and submitting our fiscal sponsorship application and let us help you create a ministry that can change your world for God’s Glory.

However you choose to move forward, I sincerely wish you the very best in your future ministry endeavors.

God’s Blessing
