Great Commission Leadership Institute

2018: September 3-14 in Chiang Mai, Thailand

God is raising the vision of the fulfillment of His Great Commission in this generation. A pivotal piece of this calling is the role of local churches and individual campus ministry fellowships in mobilizing themselves and others for the Great Commission. As such pastors & ministry leaders play a critical role in empowering disciples within their ministries to internalize the calling of the Great Commission and play their ordained role in its fulfillment.

I have been the Missions Director for my denomination for over 3 years and have been praying about ways to get the pastors and churches in our denomination to be involved in the Great Commission. At the GCLI, I have been equipped with the necessary tools with which to mobilize my church to pray and seriously get involved in the Great Commission. I recommend GCLI to all mission minded pastors and Christians. – Rev. Lewis Fiadjoe, Missions Director, International Christian Gospel Church, Ghana

SVM2 has a unique focus on equipping the global church to mobilize for mission. The Great Commission Leadership Institute gives you the sort of equipping to propel your ministry into the far reaches of the globe. – Ted Esler, President, Missio Nexus, USA

The Great Commission Leadership Institute (GCLI) is a two week certificate program combining classes with practical involvement in prayer, bible study, and outreach alongside dynamic reflection. Leaders rub shoulders with other likeminded leaders in a concentrated environment. Together they are encouraged to grow in their knowledge & passion for the Great Commission and the practical role their fellowship can have in its fulfillment.
