The vision of Global City Mission is to be a network of mission catalysts in globally-connected urban centers. Mission catalysts are focused on making disciples and training others to make disciples. As a network, mission catalysts work together to cast a vision for multiplying disciples and churches and create a learning community as they share and learn together from best practices.
Cities are gathering places for the nations. Global City Mission Initiative is sparking disciple-making with an emphasis on strategic contexts. We recognize that cities are now global crossroads where we encounter cultural influence, unreached people groups, and growing numbers of diverse peoples gathered from around the globe. Therefore, we are intentionally working in global intersections where evangelism can have an impact across the street or around the world. We emphasize working in cities. However, we also work through cities, and relationships developed in urban-global centers may also lead to ministry opportunities in rural or other settings. The gospel has always traveled on the wings of relationships, and working in global cities opens the possibility for a reach beyond boundaries.
Global City Mission Initiative seeks to catalyze new disciple-making, grassroots leaders, and church planting. As a strategic value, we keep church simple and reproducible. New churches are formed in homes or other settings as an outcome of making disciples. We don't aim at establishing large expensive or complicated programs. Mission catalysts initiate church planting that is lay-led, indigenous, and reproducible. Therefore, resources are largely dedicated to empowering mission catalysts to make new disciples, train leaders, and start churches that reflect grassroots communities.
