Do I Need to Become a Partner to Participate in the Life of Salem Alliance?
No. You may faithfully attend services, teach children’s classes, be an usher, etc. without being a partner. However, we encourage you to see partnership as a formal statement of commitment to the people and vision of this church family. Your partnership could even become a “defining moment” in your growth as a Christian, and it would be a real encouragement to our staff and church leaders.

How Do I Become a Partner?
After attending all four sections of Starting Point, you may fill out a Partner Application. This interesting and fun class gives an overview of our church ministries, doctrinal beliefs, and Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) denomination. Starting Point meets every Sunday at 12:30pm and you can find out more here.

After submitting a Partner Application you will have an informal interview with one of our Elders (you will not be asked any hard or trick questions!). After the interview, a recommendation will be made to the Governing Board to place you in partnership at Salem Alliance. After the Board approves this recommendation, you will be notified by a letter in the mail.

What are the Privileges of Partnership?
Participating partners have the opportunity to influence the key decisions and directions of the church. Partners affirm Elder Council and Governing Board candidates as well as vote on property and financial matters.
