WEAVING VISION INTO ACTION
The 2018 GACX Global Forum is a premier networking opportunity for leaders committed to discipleship and church multiplication.
GACX is united by a shared vision: one healthy, multiplying expression of the church for every 1000 people on earth.
Every moment of the 2018 Forum is designed to facilitate strategic collaboration and peer-learning.
A TAPESTRY OF GLORY
God's promises are strong vertical strands, stretching across time from earth to heaven.
Every disciple is a colorful thread, spun out of bold and obedient faith.
Together, they form a tapestry declaring God's glory. But it's still unfinished.
"...HIS BRIDE HAS PREPARED HERSELF. SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN THE FINEST OF PURE WHITE LINEN TO WEAR.” FOR THE FINE LINEN REPRESENTS THE GOOD DEEDS OF GOD’S HOLY PEOPLE.
THREADS OF FOCUS
PATTERNS OF COLLABORATION
The 2018 Global Forum features eight interactive sessions focused on different strands in the GACX vision. Each track will be facilitated by knowledgeable leaders who will guide the discussion towards practical, collaborative action.
Jesus commands his disciples to multiply and bear fruit. Learn about how Biblical principles and common DNA are resulting in rapidly growing discipleship and church movements worldwide.
Jesus says that whatever we ask for in His name will be done. A vibrant culture of prayer -- personally, organizationally, and between GACX members -- is the key to our vision.
Nearly 80% of the world learn exclusively or primarily through the spoken word. What resources and strategies are effective in facilitating multiplication in these contexts?
How do we collect, analyze, and act on data from the harvest field? Understanding our progress in multiplying disciples and churches is important at all levels of movement.
There are over 2 billion children worldwide. How can we love, develop, and equip them not as a "ministry target" but as fully mobilized partners in church multiplication?
Casting vision for movements to traditional believers can be challenging. How can donors be best recruited, equipped, and mobilized to invest in multiplication?
Engaging millennials and younger generations in God’s mission presents new challenges. How can organizations encourage intentional collaboration between generations?
