Fulfilling the Great Commission
Before Jesus returned to heaven, He gave His disciples a commission:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew 28:19
This “Great Commission” is for you and for me. And for every disciple of Jesus Christ in every part of the world.
Today, followers of Christ around the world are seeking to fulfill this mission, eager to do whatever they can to reach those who are still waiting for the Good News of Jesus Christ.
As Global Disciples, we focus on making it possible for clusters of churches to carry out this mission. We offer an approach that enables them to equip their people to make disciples and plant churches. To multiply the Body of Christ in all nations among all people.
Jember is an Ethiopian leader equipped by Global Disciples to train disciple-makers.
He said, “Global opened our eyes about how to do missions. Our main task is to send disciple-makers into this region and plant churches where there were none.
This region is more than eighty-five percent Muslim; in some places, it’s one hundred percent. There are five hundred villages with no church! In the first year, we trained twenty-five workers. God helped us and we have seen fruit.”
The fruit Jember mentioned includes local Muslim leaders coming to faith in Jesus, and ten church planters who are former Muslims. They’ve seen over five hundred people come to Christ—several of the men who used to call out the morning prayers from the local mosques have now come to Christ. And he said, “God is using them to bring many other Muslims to the Lord.”
Jember is just one of many.
Today, Global Disciples is working with over sixteen hundred clusters of churches in over sixty-seven countries, helping them to launch over two thousand eight hundred programs that are training their own people in discipleship-mission, leadership, and small business development.
The Great Commission is being fulfilled today, as we each carry out the calling of Jesus to make disciples of every nation. Thank you for doing your part!
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
