JOIN GLOBAL NETWORK


The power of a battery lies in it’s ability to keep a continuous connection. Our goal at Global Network of Christian Ministries is to open up your opportunity for that vital constant connection. People in ministry need moments of release and connectivity. As we attempt to balance ministry, work, and family, there’s got to be a place that we hit the pause button and catch our breath. Global is that place. The life and ministry demands that we all deal with necessitate finding a safe place with peers where we can encourage one another, share ideas and let iron sharpen iron. Here are a few things you can expect when you join GNCM:


  • Connector.

    RELATIONSHIPS

    The need for affirmation, encouragement and accountability among the servants of God is great. As the pace is being set for a new era of kingdom advancement, today’s leaders are faced with unique responsibilities. Genuine, spiritual kinships with others of like calling are key to dealing with the challenges of loneliness, discouragement and uncertainty. The strength of genuine relationships is honest communication and accountability. While we cannot force or enforce accountability, we can provide an avenue for those meaningful relationships to be discovered and developed.

  • Connector.

    RESOURCES

    There is invaluable strength in sharing. A major key to growth is exposure to knowledge. Networking means the sharing of ideas and information. We have nothing except that which we have received. There is an alternative to re-inventing the wheel when launching into a new endeavor. God has blessed our network with many gifted and effected people in many different ministry disciplines. Our aim is to draw from these graces and make them available to the constituency. That is what networking is all about.

  • Connector.

    REPRESENTATION

    Global Network exists to satisfy those certain specific needs of licensing and ordination that face Spirit-filled, independent ministers. It provides an opportunity for ministers to belong to something larger than themselves of their own particular ministry. While we do not set the standard for the flavor or methodology of one’s ministry, we do seek to provide an identity that we can all be proud of and that reflects our common distinctives.

  • Connector.

    Recommendation

    The idea of endorsement and affirmation finds its base in the Word. Global Network seeks to connect local pastors with international ministries worthy of support. We encourage pastors to lead their congregations into covenant relationship with world ministries. Our aim is to help independent churches in developing meaningful mission programs.

Why Ordination?

ORDINATION is the recognition of God’s hand placed on an individual; we confirm what He has done by advancing licensed ministers who are above reproach and who exhibit exemplary leadership and service to the Church. (See I Timothy 3:7)

ORDINATION is confirmation of spiritual maturity, discipline, credibility, and faithfulness in ministry. One should be hospitable, have an ability to teach and exemplify the qualities of Christ. (See I Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:6-9)

ORDINATION is a process requiring effort by the Candidate, examination, acknowledgment and impartation by Elders, confirming the work and calling of the Holy Spirit.
