Great Commission Partnerships
exists to assist North Carolina Baptists churches in their effort to impact lostness in the United States and around the world. We provide assistance to churches and associations in developing, implementing and maintaining a missions strategy.
An effective missional strategy is designed to reach unreached and unengaged people in the local community, North Carolina, North America and the world. Great Commission Partnerships (GCP) helps North Carolina Baptist churches develop and carry out a missions strategy by focusing on long-term, intentional partnerships, global impact networks and developing young leaders.
GCP coordinates partnerships of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSCNC) in three metropolitan areas: New York City, Boston and Toronto, which together account for 30 million people. Mobilization opportunities are available in all three areas.
GCP also helps connect North Carolina Baptist churches by developing global impact networks. These networks are points of connection for local congregations to partner with other congregations, the BSCNC, the North American Mission Board, the International Mission Board and other evangelical groups for the purpose of impacting unreached/underserved people groups of the world.
Next generation leaders are developed through a three-year missional journey that involves: teaching from pastors, missionaries and mission strategists; interactive Web-based discussion and accountability groups; and hands-on mission involvement with church planters, urban strategists and missionaries serving in unreached and underserved areas of the nations.
