April 11 "The World is within Reach"

Equipping People to Reach Their Nations

Global Disciples trains leaders living near least reached communities to multiply disciples.

In November 1995, leaders from several discipleship and mission training programs met for a day of prayer and fasting.  Drawn together by a common mission, each also shared a common desire:  to respond to the need expressed by clusters of churches worldwide to provide discipleship-missions training for their own young people.  God birthed Global Disciples and the initial training model known as Global Discipleship Training (GDT).  Since then, Global Disciples has added training for trainers in small business development (SBD) and leadership development (LEAD).

Today, Global Disciples has grown to serve in partnership with over 928 church organizations, fellowships, or denominations in 46 countries, providing training which enables them to equip and send out their own mission workers to multiply Christ-like believers and plant new, locally-sustainable fellowships and churches.  The global nature of our ministry is also reflected in the 31 nationalities represented in our facilitators, trainers, and support staff.

Match Fund:  any gift of $1,000 or more before June 30th is matched!  $2.2 million match this year.

Financial Projects to consider:  If you or your church family are interested in a region, you can invest in Africa, Asia or Latin American.  Non-designated funds are best as they can be used as the Lord leads.

To learn and meet some of the Global Disciples’ staff:

You are invited to breakfast! (free of charge)

Friday morning (April 16) 6:30 – 8:00 AM at Lucille’s Road House 1301 N. Airport Road, Weatherford, OK

If lunch works better for you, plan to attend the soup luncheon at Pleasant View Mennonite Church on Sunday, April 18 from 12:00 to 1:30 PM.  Eat in, drive thru or take out available.  The luncheon will include a choice of homemade green bean, chicken noodle or vegetable soup, homemade bread (courtesy of Betty Peachy) and a homemade cobbler for dessert.
