Investment and Return
How much do you invest in the vision or mission God gave you?
Are you invested with both your heart AND your resources?
Pascal is. He was trained by Global Disciples to equip disciple-makers and church planters in his region of Cameroon. He was all fired up about multiplying disciples but his supporting churches were reluctant to fund the training program.
Pascal was so committed to answering God’s call that he put his own resources into it. He said, “I really wanted to see it work!” So he sold the livestock he was raising. Think of it—selling off your business, mortgaging your home, or cashing in your retirement funds…just to carry out the vision God gives you.
Did his investment pay off?
Well, the first year, Pascal trained and sent 15 new disciple-makers for outreach and evangelism. In one area, they planted 2 churches, with about 80 new believers.
In one community, they were asked to help a dying church find new life. They left a church planter there to shepherd that church until a pastor is ready.
The church planters visited a place where Pascal said, “It is difficult to preach. But we spoke to the local queen. She suffered from a terminal disease so we prayed for her in the name of Jesus. Immediately she was healed!” Pascal says she’s opening doors for the Gospel among all of her people now.
Another chief had a daughter who was very ill. The disciple-makers prayed for her healing and the Lord answered. As a result the chief welcomed them to his home and gave them access to his people. But, Pascal said, “It’s a very difficult place to minister. So I plan to move there to continue to work on a breakthrough in this place.”
Pascal’s sacrifice and personal investment are bearing spiritual fruit. And I’m happy to say his churches now have begun to fully support his efforts as well.
What about you? How are you investing in what God has called you to do for His glory?
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!
The Beauty of Local Sustainability
Global Disciples believes local sustainability means indigenous churches around the world can fulfill their part in the Great Commission.
Biblical Truth – Allowing the Word of God to Speak to Us
The Word of God is used by the Holy Spirit to convict us of sin, lead us to salvation, and teach us how to follow Jesus in daily life.
Leading Discipleship from the Kitchen
Jesus Christ did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. A servant leader is a Christ-like leader.
