Dear Co-Laborer in Christ:


GGCN LogoThe Global Great Commission Network exists to stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation.  What does "making disciples of every people in our generation" mean? Where are we at in our obedience to the Great Commission's commandment to make disciples? If there are gaps in our obedience and teaching, what needs to be done and where do we get started?

Trying to make sense out of the verbiage surrounding missions in an age of competing information may be a good starting point.  Marvin Newell's article Run That By me Again - God's Global Mission Clarified in the following section does just that.


At the same time we want to encourage you to enter into the discussion about what it means and how to participate in "making disciples of every people".  An excellent way to do that is to participate in the GCnetwork, as highlighted in the second article.  Jump in and shares your ideas and resources!

important, and what should have priority. The goal of this presentation is to bring an
order to the strategy of world evangelization, based on what Jesus told us our task is,
based on Matthew 28:19-20. Familiarity with Matthew 28:18-20 must dictate mission

strategy if we are to clearly understand God's global mission to the nations. Continued  ...
