The following GCRC overview communicates the concept of Great Commission Resource Centers and how to look at reaching affinity groups in communities. The GCRC overview video features Dr. J. Robert White, Executive Director of Georgia Baptist Mission Board, and state missionary, George Barnett.
Great Commission Resource Centers help the pastor lead his church to reach Unengaged Affinity Groups through discovering the passion of the members and lead them to use their passion for God’s purpose of Global Redemption. The concept is simple, yet dynamic, and can lead your church to become actively involved in the Great Commission.
The concept is not another program to promote, but a concept that produces involvement; involvement which produces passion; passion which produces participation, and participation that leads the church to accomplish Acts 1:8. The GCRC overview shows that every church is a Great Commission Resource Center. The Great Commission was given to every church and every believer.
Regional State Missionaries seek to develop relationships with associational missionaries, pastor, and staff, networking with them in order to minister, create a cohesive spirit, and support cooperative work among all churches. Three Regional State Missionaries are available to assist churches. As a field-based ministry, they have the availability of all the resources of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board to assist associations, churches, pastors, staff, and church leadership. Offices are located in Augusta, Valdosta, and Monroe.
