is a ministry of The Christian and Missionary Alliance. Craig Smith is licensed as an Alliance official worker, serving as a C&MA National Evangelist. LaDonna has served faithfully along Craig’s side in music, teaching and equipping many next generation rescuers for over thirty-four years.

As a part of The Alliance, Tribal Rescue Ministries operates under the Statement of Faith of The C&MA. You can learn more about The Alliance by visiting

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
