Christian & Missionary Alliance
The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) is committed to Jesus and his mission. They are a group of approximately 440 local churches in Canada and they send people to live on mission locally and globally. C&MA aims to be a Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused movement in everything that they do.
C&MA is a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) and provides refugee sponsorship support to local Alliance and partner denomination churches.

In November 2015, FAIR announced its partnership with C&MA in response to the global refugee crisis and in answer to the expressed desire of many churches to sponsor refugees to come to Canada. This partnership makes the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches (FEBCC) a partner denomination of C&MA, which allows Fellowship churches to apply for refugee sponsorship under the privileges that C&MA’s SAH status confers. C&MA also provides counsel during the discernment and application process as well as access to refugee sponsorship training resources and supportive network opportunities.
Serving Fellowship Churches
FAIR serves Fellowship churches seeking to apply for Refugee Sponsorship by acting as a liaison between the church and C&MA. Practical services include:
