Men of Purpose Men’s Ministry is taught with the mission of restoring man to his rightful, spiritual, authoritative position in the earth by introducing him to and reaffirming the word of God operating in his life. In doing so, M.O.P. learn who they are and who’s they are by transforming from deep within. Deliverance, Healing, Mind Renewal and Restoration take place allowing Men of Purpose to walk in Dominion and their Kingdom Authority.

Women of Deliverance is composed of a select team of women whose sole purpose is to cast down high powers and cast out demons. These women are equipped with the armor of God, allied with Heavenly Host and steadfast to war in the spirit realm against the rulers of darkness, break strongholds, destroy yokes, bondage and entanglement. (Ephesians 6:10-18) (2 Corinthians 10:4)
To enable women to discover their potential and strength as intercessors, worshipers and “Women of Warfare” in battle for their families, pastors, churches, communities, workplace, the lost and oneself. (Deuteronomy 20:1) (1Kings 13:6)
To birth a nation of fasting, wailing women that lay prostrate before the Lord, walk in their dominion, are victorious in battle and in prayer for the Glory of God and the building of His Kingdom. (Jeremiah 9:16-18) (Genesis 1:28) (Mark 9:29)
ALCOD Youth Ministry is structured by age groups.
The Infant/Toddler/ Preschool Ministry starts with infants to age 6 years old: We believe learning begins at birth. Our teachers will speak life into our babies using scriptures such as Psalm 139:14 ‘You have been fearfully and wonderfully made by God’ and a variety of other scriptures that will encourage their understanding. Our early learners are taught Bible based lessons that will enrich their learning and awareness of God at an early age.
Grade School age is 7-18 years old: Our grade school scholars are being taught on their level of understanding how to seek a relationship with God in the times in which we live in. They are also taught how to pray and believe God for the things they are asking him for. Our scholars are taught and interact in role playing as they learn how to love your enemies and how to handle various life issues that our youth have to face daily. We believe it is important for our youth to show the world that they can live a Holy life and enjoy life.
College age ranges from 18-22 years old: Our college youth are taught the same biblical fundamentals and principals as our grade school scholars. Additionally, there is a more in depth focus centered on life preparation, adulthood readiness and college transitioning.
Our belief is to train up a child in the way he should go and when he grows old he will not depart (Proverbs 22:6). When our children transition from youth into adults, they will have a firm foundation in Jesus to continue to build their lives upon.
Where there is Prayer, there is Power. And there is powerful prayer in numbers (Acts 1:14). ALCOD Intercessory Prayer Ministry is responsible for undergirding the overall ministry and its goals by covering the church (the building and the body), The Man and Woman of God, and ALL people with intercession to strengthen them in the Lord. (1 Timothy 2:1) (1 Thessalonians 5:25). As written in Ezekiel 22:30, God sought out a people that would stand in the gap on behalf of others and for the Kingdom of God.
1 Chronicles 6:31-32 And these are they whom David set over the service of song in the house of the LORD, after the ark had rest. And they ministered before the dwelling place of the tabernacle of the congregation with singing, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem: and then they waited on their office according to their order.
ALCOD Praise Team Ministry uses the gift of their voice through song to glorify God and to minister to the hearer. Praise plus Worship sets the tone for the Man or Woman of God to bring forth the Word of God for the hearer. We also believe when the atmosphere encompasses true praise and worship it allows the Spirit of the Lord to dwell there amongst the people (Matthew 18:20). Praise draws the people (hearer) in and closer to God allowing them to forget about themselves, their problems and reminding them to look to the hills for which cometh their help (Psalm 121:1-2).
God has commissioned us in Psalm 100:4 to enter into His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts praise. Just as David sang and danced before the Lord honoring Him, Praising Him and Blessing His Name, change was taking place. Songs are words. Words are spoken. And as ALCOD’s praise team speaks God’s Word through song, we too believe change is taking place in the mind, heart and lives of the people. Deliverance and healing takes place, walls start to crumble, burdens are lifted, blinded unaware eyes start to see the light and love of God, and ears are now open to hear what God wants to do in their lives. With an open heart and mind, the people are ready to receive the Word of God and to begin living Life More Abundantly (John 10:10).
This ministry is a part of the worship experience that will usher in the presence of God by using instruments such as drums, piano, guitar, voice and song. The music ministry flows in harmony with the Praise and Worship Team as they sing and give praises unto God.
(Philippians 2:2) (Psalm 150:4)
Psalm 149:3 Let them praise his name in the dance:
Ecclesiastes 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
The Dance and Drama Ministry encompasses a variety of artistic forms of praise and worship. God equips and anoints these powerful teams and individuals to spread the gospel through radical, non-traditional expressions using flags, praise and worship dance, mime and gospel rap. We believe gospel rap is a platform of expression for the youth as it allows them to freely worship God in another art form.
Flowing from a pure anointing, we invite the people (the viewer) into the dance and drama worship experience to take them into a greater depth of God’s presence and love; to allow submission to God, breakthrough, deliverance, restoration, and healing to transpire within individuals and families. ALCOD Dance and Drama Ministry is a seed depositing praise and worship into the heart, mind and spirit of the people which allows God to cultivate and birth out ministries from within for His Glory.
This ministry assists those who enter into the sanctuary by directing them to a seat and providing visitors with welcome packets. The Usher Ministry also provides tithe and offering envelopes, lap cloths, tissues and other items as needed. ALCOD Ushers and Greeters work closely with one another within the ministry. We believe that serving in order and excellence in any capacity is too serving the Lord.
