Mission Alive received the Distinguished Christian Service on May 2, 2014. President Andrew Benton, VP for Public Affairs and Church Relations Rick Gibson and Director of Ministry Outreach Mike Cope presented the award at the 71st Annual Bible Lectures.
Mike Cope handed off the award before a crowded Waves Cafeteria. As an organization, Mission Alive works to empower and strengthen church planters around the country. Based around Dallas, the group has evolved into a powerful church-planting organization over the past four years.
The Distinguished Christian Service Award was created to honor preachers, professors, missionaries, and other church leaders from within Churches of Christ who have given their lives in service to the cause of Christ.
