In order for the Global Great Commission Network to achieve its vision to “stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation”, many volunteers are needed. Current priority needs include programmers and system designers to work with the Discipleship Survey and Last Mile Calling Development teams.


Much progress has been made in some areas and projects, as outlined below, by a small number of volunteers. Our prayer is for a growing number of visionary participants and contributors. Here's a list of ways you can connect and be part of our common efforts:

Discipleship Survey

The Global Great Commission Network exists to stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation.  As a priority project, the GGCN has created and is continuing to develop an interactive discipleship assessment survey tool to aid in the efforts of making disciples of every people.  This tool can be found at www.globaldiscipleshipsurvy.org where individuals, churches, and other groups can participate.   After taking the survey, users immediate receive in response a Survey Analysis.  Along with a “Score” in each category, the user can select ‘Resources’ under each category and this will take them to a growing list of resources available to help the user in each discipleship area.  The user also has the ability to add other resources to the Crowdsourced database.  More information is available at www.ggcn.org/discipleshipsurvey.


Volunteer Needs:


    • Software System Engineers to be part of the development team
    • Computer/Internet programmers
    • Individuals to compile and promote discipleship materials
    • Individuals and/or organizations to provide online training in discipleship
    • Participants in regional and country Discipleship Survey development teams in order to translate the survey into local languages and to adapt to cultural differences

Online Networking Tools

At Tokyo 2010, a vision for a networking tool focused on networking between intercessors, givers, goers and senders around the work focused on unreached people group was presented.  It was called the Last Mile Calling network.  Since 2010 much effort has gone into bringing this vision to reality.


The Last Mile Calling has evolved into two separate projects and networking tools, both exciting and both encompassing components of the original Last Mile Calling vision.  A re-launch of the Last Mile Calling network, with the same name, has been developed and is available for users interested in an online networking platform focused on reaching the 4,500+ unreached people groups on the Last Mile Calling priority list.  The Last Mile Calling web application enables churches, mission agencies, intercessors, businesses and funding partners to indicate their level of commitment, involvement, or interest in networking with others to reach a particular unreached group.  The Last Mile Calling project anticipates moving from the beta-stage to full deployment in the next few months.  We anticipate that the Last Mile Calling programming needs will grow as the user base grows and requests new features. 


Volunteer Needs:


    • Programmers who can take on specific priority coding assignments
    • Unreached People researches to be part of the development team
    • Regional project facilitators

To get more information about this opportunity to contribute to the world’s first comprehensive social-networking site for unreached peoples, please email [email protected].  To participate in the beta testing and/or to get a closer look at the current Last Mile Calling network, browse www.lastmilecalling.net and register.


The GCNetwork (GCn) is focused on the social networking opportunities for the furtherance of Great Commission collaborative efforts.  GCNetwork has emerged as a social networking site focused on Missions and Great Commission efforts.   The GCnetwork (GCn) rollout continues.  A growing number of networks have begun using the GCn for intra-agency communication among their leadership and several are beginning the process of implementing GCn as their primary communication tool across their membership.  We believe this will lead to greater interagency communication as members are successfully connecting with mission leaders from around the world.  We are excited about this project and encouraged that this is a tool that will encourage more people to CONNECT, COLLABORATE, AND COMMUNICATE within the mission community as calendar events are shared, causes are championed, projects are promoted and discussions are started.


Volunteer Needs:


    • Individuals with varying skills to serve on the Launch Team.
    • Networks or other organizations to adapt GCnetwork to their own needs
    • Group and other network online facilitators

If you have an interest in helping, the time to contribute to the development, and programming and web skills that you can offer, please contact [email protected].  Work is going forward to identify networks or associations interested in exploring how they can effectively manage their internal communications by utilizing GCn. Once a network or organization joins the GGn, they can invite their own members, establish and manage their own Groups, either Public for the purpose of education and exposure, or Private or even completely Hidden Groups for internal communication.
