Global Action engages and empowers the Global Church into action, helping the Church to fulfill the Great Commission: Christ's great cause for Christians to make disciples of all nations.

We have identified a lack of leadership training and proper vision of healthy church as our greatest challenge is to fulfill the charge Christ gave to us, "make disciples of all nations."

We have developed a unique system that empowers and equips local pastors and church leaders in "developing" nations by providing them with Biblical and church growth training, missional vision, and a growing network of over 5,500 pastors and church leaders.
