I don’t know how many times I have walked in the store looking for a tie only to go to a tie rack and see the sign, “One size fits all.” For some reason that has not been applicable for me. It just doesn’t work out all the time that “one size fits all.” Many times when Pastors receive information across their desk about something new, it appears like a “one size fits all”. Or to put it in other words, it appears to be another cookie cutter program.
That is what makes GCRC (Great Commission Resource Center) so unique. It is not another cookie cutter program. It is not “God in a box” come to your church to help. The focus of GCRC reveals the uniqueness of each church and the individual believers within that church. It allows the fellowship of believers, known as a local New Testament Church, to get involved in fulfilling the Great Commission through their unique passion.
It may be turkey hunters, deer hunters, or a sewing circle or knitting group. There are people of like passion or interest that can be reached by those within your church. The pastor, staff, or deacons may not be able to reach that person but someone in the pews can. There is a common interest that someone in the church has with that lost person not in the church. The purpose of GCRC is to assist the Pastor as he leads the church to accomplish the Great Commission.
