I look back on GCA’s ministry of training pastoral leaders around the world (like this man above from Senegal in 2008) with both joy and sorrow. Joy over the privilege of bringing leaders like him practical, seminary-level training in evangelism, discipleship, church planting, etc. And sorrow over our inability to bring him, and millions more like him, even more.
My 30 plus years as a church planter, pastor, trainer, and seminary professor are now culminating in a new vision for GCA to provide world-class, multimedia, practical pastoral education to help start, grow, and multiply gospel-centered churches among the world’s most strategic nations.
3 REASONS WHY TO INVEST IN GCA
The most effective way to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission “to make disciples of all nations” is by starting, growing, and multiplying gospel-centered churches that develop effective ministries of:
- Evangelism (personal conversion),
- Discipleship (spiritual formation), and
- Social Justice (societal transformation)
2) EFFECTIVE PASTORAL LEADERS ARE THE HOPE OF THE CHURCH.
God’s plan is for pastoral leaders to equip his people for effective ministries of evangelism, discipleship, and social justice. But millions of pastoral leaders do not have access to or cannot afford high quality, practical pastoral education to help them develop these gospel ministries
Therefore millions of non-Christians are not hearing the gospel and millions of Christians are not being equipped for gospel ministries. As a result, spiritual darkness, and cultural and societal decay are reaching unprecedented levels globally.
3) PRACTICAL PASTORAL EDUCATION IS THE HOPE OF PASTORAL LEADERS.
