TODAY IS GIVING TUESDAY! You are going to get many appeals and many of them will be worthy. We would like you to consider GlocalNet as one of the charities you give to today. Why?
- We are all about building bridges and promoting peace in the public square. Whether we are starting churches, gathering Pastors/Imams/Rabbis, doing conferences on community development around the world, engaging nations with volunteers in all the domains of society, training churches, consulting with governments – some of which are very sensitive places, or convening the global church – it’s all geared toward how do we live and communicate our faith in a positive way in the 21st century that glorifies God and brings value to humanity.
- Last year through our training and family of churches we helped over 65 churches get started in the United States. We have a special DNA we call KDSC. K is for God’s Kingdom and the foundation of everything for us as we read in the Sermon on the Mount and all the teachings of Jesus. D is for disciples that hear and obey. S is for society and the 8 domains that everyone has a job in. C is for the church as the body of Christ built around the mission of Jesus, not just a Sunday event. This year we will move from 5 church planting centers to 8 across the country.
- We gather yearly 20 major global evangelical pastors annually from all over the world – India, China, Brazil, U.S., Bangladesh, Kenya, South Africa, Middle-East, and other countries. We all have started our own churches and we all have multiplied churches out of our church. We teach one another what we are learning and we serve one another.
- We teach churches how to work in hard nations of the world by being transparent and going through the front door. Each church is encouraged to adopt a nation to be there long term, not just take a trip there. The key for us is to mobilize everyday followers of Jesus to serve nations through their vocations in the 8 domains education, business, health, government, agriculture, communications, civil society, science/technology. We do the exact same thing with pastors and church planters in teaching them how to engage their own local cities in the domains.
- We have been blessed with the ability to convene significant Evangelical Pastors, Muslim Imams, and Rabbis to connect churches, mosques, synagogues to address islamophobia, anti-semitism, and global persecution of Christians and other religions as well. It has opened doors to nations and platforms that most evangelicals historically have had little or no access to. We practice Multi-faith engagement globally and it his having a very significant impact. We partner with Imam Mohammed Magid of International Interfaith Peace Corps here in the U.S. and more recently the Atlantic Council in Washington D.C. has come beside us to help incubate our process called “My Neighbor’s Keeper.” No one has helped us more or been a better partner than the Peace Forum with Shayk Bin Bayyah as we have taken the retreats to Abu Dhabi and Morocco with the Peace Forum. It’s one thing to be with your tribe telling others how to treat you, quite another thing to do that collaboratively and globally with other religions and top religious and government leaders.
- Most of our churches are multi-ethnic. Sermons and conferences on race relations have done little the past 100 years – the answer is the Church – but a biblical church with all tongues, tribes, and peoples present. There is only the Church – not a black church, white church, Hispanic church. When you work with the city, your church will be far more integrated because sadly, the city reflects the make up of communities more than the church.
Our dream is to redefine how churches engage the world in the 21st century. Our Truth has not changed – our context to communicate that Truth has. To not be relevant and clear to the time in which we live – is a sin. Join us in this adventure! Click here to support GlocalNet.
