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!
A Way to Make It Work
Life, ministry, work, and business can be integrated for the glory of God and to reach others with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Identity and Vocation
Operating a small business as a church planter has economic advantages but also gives the church planter credibility within a community.
Trusting God’s Hand
For Kam and for a group of disciple-makers in Myanmar, following God's lead has led to open doors, new churches, and transformed lives.
