Michael Clark – Phoenix Arizona

Community Coordinators

Michael brings a combination of business and passion for ministry to Alliance. His prior experience in sales, marketing, project management and consulting have been instrumental in his pursuit of Full Time Ministry.

Michael Clark has a passion to help people realize their identity in Christ and help people reach their full potential and calling in Christ. He realized his calling to full time ministry in his mid forties when he pursued a degree in religious studies and Biblical theology from Heritage College and Seminary.

Michael is currently involved in community outreach where he works with a local restaurant owner to reach the mostly un-churched community in Bible studies pursuing those who are reluctant to a traditional church setting. He utilizes tools such as “The Truth Project”, “The Greater Yes”, and the “210 Project” to teach people a solid Christian Worldview and help them find their unique calling in life.

Michael is currently developing a curriculum for a men’s ministry called “Hard Core Menistries”, designed to take a small group of men through an intense 18-24 month curriculum teaching men to “live life at the core in Christ.”

Michael and wife Leigh Clark have been blessed with 17 years of Marriage. Leigh also works in full time ministry with Ministry Insights. They have a love for the outdoors and enjoy hiking, kayaking and camping. Michael is also an avid angler and hunter. He and his wife reside in Phoenix Arizona.

Community Coordinators

History

The Alliance team has built a close working relationship with our brothers and sisters in Jackson, MS. Following a series of one-on-one meetings to determine where God is already working in the city, and how our team might best serve Jackson to help address unresolved areas of pain.

Governor Phil Bryant hosted a community meeting in December of 2012, bringing together community leaders interested in working together for positive change in Jackson. Since that time, a number of leaders stepped forward to form a coalition resolved to mobilize the body of Christ, to work in unity to address unmet needs in the city. Larry McAdoo serves as the coalition leader.

Overview and Goals

Currently the coalition members are growing relationships with one another, meeting regularly for business and fellowship. The goal is to grow the coalition with a diverse group of leaders from across Jackson.

The coalition has identified an area of Jackson that will be the focus of activity and effort. This area is being mapped to determine where services overlap, and where services are lacking. The map will help in setting goals and objectives that will be meaningful, and long lasting. Alliance will train the coalition throughout this process.

Next Steps

Even as the mapping process continues, the Alliance team will offer the 210 Project leadership training to members of the coalition.  We believe that when training is multiplied, a volunteer force will arise to meet the needs in the community.   Neal Vinson will lead the training in Jackson once individuals in the coalition have personally completed the process.  More details to come!

How People Can Get Involved

No matter the sphere in which you work, if you are a community leader, Larry would like to invite you to be a part of this exciting coalition. God is at work, and you will have opportunity to be included on the ground floor of this great adventure in Jackson.
