National Evangelists


CMA has split the United States into six regions with one Evangelist overseeing each region, one Evangelist to work special projects in order to support the growth of the ministry, and one Youth Evangelist. The purpose of a Regional Evangelists is that of a pastor who provides leadership, spiritual wisdom, and training in the ministry of CMA. National Evangelists are also ready and willing to equip the saints to do the work the Lord has placed on the hearts of CMA members across the nation.
