Dear Co-Laborer in Christ:

The Global Great Commission Network is a cooperative follow-up ministry of the Tokyo 2010 Global Mission Consultation.  The purpose and role of the GGCN can be summarized in the following three values:


  • The Global Great Commission Network exists to broadly encourage collaboration and partnership.
  • The Global Great Commission Network exists to stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation.
  • The Global Great Commission Network exists not to compete with, but to serve and support other networks and ministries.

Toward these ends we are excited about some developing tools and resources that we can offer the broad mission community. We'll continue to introduce those with these newsletters and continue to solicit your participation and feedback.

Ghana 2013 Consultation - September 25-28, 2013
The journey to Ghana 2013 began at the Tokyo 2010 Global Mission Consultation. Celebrating 100 years of progress since Edinburgh 1910, the theme of the consultation was "Making disciples of every people in our generation." Sensing that God was speaking to his global church to make the discipling of all peoples a priority for this generation, the African delegates to Tokyo 2010 have decided to bring the spirit and vision of the consultation to the continent of Africa. The Ghana Evangelical Missions Association, together with the Ghana Evangelization Center, has taken up the challenge to host the event and form a host committee. The international committee is composed of many of the organizers and partners of the Tokyo 2010 gathering, including the Third World Missions Association, the Global Network of Mission Structures, the Nigerian Evangelical Missions Association, the US Center for World Mission, MissioNexus, and the Asia Missions Association, among others.

The GGCN will be hosting a special track at Ghana 2013 to develop a network of ministries with a discipleship emphasis.  The purpose of the discipleship network will be to learn from one another, share resources, and partner in common goals towards seeing national discipleship movements in every country and people group in the world.  For more information contact [email protected].
Current information about Ghana 2013 is available at www.ghana2013.org, and further registration information will be posted at that site as it is available. 
GCNetwork and Last Mile Calling
The GCnetwork (GCn) rollout began in January 2013 and will continue gradually throughout the year.  GCnetwork facilitators are currently working to identify individuals to serve on the Launch Team. Work is going forward to identify networks or associations interested in exploring how they can effectively manage their internal communications by utilizing GCn. Once a network or organization joins the GGn, they can invite their own members, establish and manage their own Groups, either Public for the purpose of education and exposure, or Private or even completely Hidden Groups for internal communication.  For more information about the GCnetwork, contact [email protected].

The Last Mile Calling re-launch is also available for user registration.  This is an online networking platform focused on reaching the 4,500+ unreached people groups on the Last Mile Calling priority list.  The Last Mile Calling web application enables churches, mission agencies, intercessors, businesses and funding partners to indicate their level of commitment, involvement, or interest in networking with others to reach a particular unreached group.  To participate in the beta testing and/or to get a closer look at the current Last Mile Calling network, browse www.lastmilecalling.net and register, or email [email protected].
We are encouraged with several of the Global Great Commission Network initiatives as we see Great Commission practitioners get involved in many levels.  We are here to serve you and your ministry.  We'd love to hear from you. 
In His Mission,
David Hupp
