James Kennedy, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church; Kenneth Ulmer, Faithful Central Bible Church; Greg Laurie, Harvest Christian Fellowship; Sunday Adelaja, Embassy of the Blessed Kingdom of God for All Nations; Robert Schuller, Crystal Cathedral Ministries; and many, many more.
David noted that it is unusual for such a variety of denominations and ministries to work together on the training project.
“Baptists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Pentecostals and representatives from other denominations and ministries are setting aside differences and laying aside agendas, to come together to train the next generation of Christian leaders,” Davis said. “They’re participating because it’s an extremely big world, but it’s reachable if we serve together.”
GPN officials are hoping churches and donors will help produce the remaining courses. Church groups can fund an entire course for just $6,000.
Co-founded by the late Dr. Bill Bright and current president/CEO Dr. James Davis just two years ago, GPN is positioned to help unite the body of Christ behind a strategy to fulfill the Great Commission - Jesus’ commandment to preach the gospel throughout all the world -- by training five million new leaders and planting five million new churches around the world in the next ten years.
Just last month, GPN brought together some of the biggest names in Christendom to participate in an international conference, screen Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of The Christ and discuss strategies for working together to fulfill the Great Commission.
