Are you looking to grow your faith and make a meaningful impact in the world? Church planting and global discipleship are two powerful ways to fulfill the Great Commission and expand the Kingdom of God. Although they have different approaches, both are critical aspects of spreading the Gospel and building up the body of Christ.
Church planting is the process of starting a new church from an existing one, expressing Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. It takes on different forms all over the world, reflecting the unique needs of each community. When done well, church planting results in thriving, self-sustaining, and reproducing communities of faith. It’s also an effective way to bring the Gospel to new areas, with the support and backing of a sending church or organization.
Global discipleship, on the other hand, focuses on training and coaching believers to share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures, especially in areas that are least reached. The OM REACH program offers high-quality training and mentoring to help participants better understand God and the world and effectively meet the challenges of missionary work. With programs available in South Asia, Himalayas, and Eastern Europe, REACH is an excellent opportunity for those looking to grow in their faith and expand their impact in the world.
Ultimately, the goal of both church planting and global discipleship is to disciple others and empower them to become functioning members of the body of Christ. Every believer has a role to play in building up the church and growing it to maturity. As Paul emphasizes in Ephesians 4:11-16, the growth of the church depends on ordinary believers who bring others to new birth and disciple them in the power of the Holy Spirit.
So, whether you feel called to church planting or global discipleship, the mandate remains the same: to make disciples and share the Gospel with people all over the world.
