    Join the Mission

    With your help we are able to train leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples.

You can make your plans, but be sure they include listening to the Holy Spirit for true direction on God’s plan.

A man’s mind plans his way [as he journeys through life],
But the Lord directs his steps and establishes them.

Proverbs 16:9

So often God takes us out of our comfort zone, and changes our plans, in order to accomplish His plans! You can be thankful that God’s Plan is always the best plan.

Like the story of Perla recently. She leads a discipleship-mission training program in Mexico.

Usually, when the participants get to the outreach part of their training, they work as a full team at planting a church.

This time, Perla said, “The Holy Spirit led us to take the Gospel to a variety of locations. We connected with a man of peace in a very difficult place. He is a head teacher in the area. We stayed with him during our outreach and went to preach in 10 villages around the area.”

“Normally the whole team stays together and we do drama and a presentation,” Perla explained, “But this time we went out two by two. And this was the first time for many of them to do this kind of ministry.” However, as the teams began to report in, they had awesome stories to report and saw God working in mighty ways.

Perla And God’s Plan

Perla went along with two disciple-makers, a 20-year old, and one who was a teenager!

She said, “They never had gone out to share the Gospel before and it transformed them!”

They went to a location where the people had never heard of Jesus. They went door to door and shared the Gospel with 70 people, and only 1 person did NOT receive Jesus!

Most of their efforts focused on the women, since the men were away at work. But Perla and her two young disciple-makers had the opportunity to share the love and salvation of Christ with men as they returned from the fields, and all of them found new life and faith in Him! A church was born in a day.

Perla shared that the local hosting church experienced revival too as they saw what the Lord was doing. Praise God!

As Perla and her team know, when the Holy Spirit nudges you and changes your plans, it’s worth following His direction.

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.

Have you ever wondered what finding your calling and ministry could look like? In this blog, we’ll discover Stefan’s powerful discovery of Gods plan and purpose for his life

Stefan’s calling and ministry

Stefan was struggling. “I was in crisis with myself,” he said. “I simply could not fit in very well in the church. At times, I participated in groups and went to church regularly, but I didn’t feel connected or useful.”

Then Stefan’s pastor stepped in. He also directs a discipleship-mission training in Brazil, launched with the help of Global Disciples. And he challenged young Stefan to join the training.

Stefan said, “My pastor told me that God might be calling me to work outside the church, and I was curious.”

At first, Stefan wasn’t sure about the training—it seemed to be familiar principles to him. But when he and the other disciple-makers went on outreach, his eyes were opened!

Spiritual battles in ministry

“We had many difficulties getting there, what I think were spiritual battles,” Stefan said. “I understood that what we had been taught in theory would have to be put into practice! So we began to pray even more for the outreach and for each other because we knew God would do great things through the lives of the people in that place.”

One of the great things God did for Stefan was to show him that he was useful. As the team divided up different responsibilities, Stefan was assigned to share the Gospel with local children.

Using natural gifts and talents

He said, “This was fantastic for me! I could use my gifts and talents in a natural way and see that God uses me greatly. He’s never done this before.”

Like so many others, in over 65 countries around the world, Stefan has learned that God wants to use Him to further His Kingdom. He found direction and purpose in life as he goes out to share the Good News of Jesus, and multiply disciples—even if those he’s reaching are children.

Consequently, Stefan reports, “Today I know God has called me to work beyond our church, and my church has sent me to support a new church that’s just beginning. I’m so glad I participated in the training program because, through it, I found my purpose in life and a ministry that fits who I am.”

What’s in your hands? This question has been the title of our Small Business Development (SBD) curriculum for more than 15 years. SBD training has helped disciple-makers and church planters launch several thousand small businesses in the last five years.

These small businesses give disciple-makers an identity that makes sense in a Muslim village or a Hindu neighborhood and provide support for their family. Through their businesses, at least 43,667 people have come to Christ in 1,407 newly churches planted.

Starting a business based on what’s in their hands has borne much fruit. This strategy makes sense. And the small business/church planting stories that have emerged are fascinating and inspiring.

Whats In Your Hands? The Power Of Sacrifice

“What’s in your hands?” is a good question for each of us to consider. Recently one of our Global Disciples Facilitators from Ecuador was sharing the perspective his church has on reaching least-reached people.

He said, “We tell the people of our church that everyone works in the mission: the knees of those who pray, the hands of those who give, and the feet of those who go. No matter what area of the mission you are involved in, either praying on your knees, opening your hands to give or moving your feet to go, it must be done sacrificially. Sacrificially pray, sacrificially go, and sacrificially give to reach the unreached people.”

What is your role in reaching the one-third of our world that has never had the opportunity to respond to the Good News of Jesus? What is in your hands? The Bible reminds us that God our Savior “wants all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).

It is inspiring to read stories of the early Church after Pentecost. “They were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need” (Acts 2:45). Their engagement in God’s mission began with what they had in their hands. It’s a great place for each of us to start making God’s glory known in the nations.
