Christianity is a global religion. Fellowships of evangelical believers are spread far and wide throughout the world. For the first time in church history, the geographic center of the Christian faith is trending away from the West. In the year 1800, 99% of Christians lived in North America and Europe. Today, less than 30% live on these two continents. In 1980, more Christians were found in the global South than the North for the first time in over a thousand years.
Church planting movements are taking place across South America, Africa, and parts of Asia. There is a great need for us to partner with believers from these places in order to equip, train, resource and send out missionaries.
GO! Training Initiatives will provide training and resources to evangelical churches throughout the world to encourage the sending of missionaries through the development of new church plants and training for existing churches.
The final outcome is to see a multiplication of evangelical churches around the globe planted by the leaders of the emerging church worldwide.
