Strategies

Jesus’ last words to his followers involves making disciples of all nations. This command given to the early church is still in effect today. It includes not only making disciples locally but making disciples globally as well. In order for churches to fulfill this command, there must be intentionality. Job Juarez and Doug Williams are available to help your church as you strategize your Great Commission involvement.

We can meet with your missions leaders to hear, assess, and implement an Acts 1:8 strategy for your congregation. Please reach out to us to hear more about the process of a Great Commission strategy.

Partnerships

A Vision Tour is an opportunity for pastors, associational mission strategists and mission leaders to spend time with potential ministry partners and hear their vision for reaching people with the gospel. Vision Tours range from a few days to about a week and are led by KBC staff or ministry partners. All of these trips are made possible through your generous gifts to the Cooperative Program.

Every Church on Mission (ECOM)
Every Church on Mission is an initiative to help churches take their next Great Commission step.

Great Commission Pipeline

A pipeline is a channel by which something passes from point A to point B. The primary purpose of the Great Commission Pipeline is to help pastors, leaders, and church members to discover and understand their unique role in fulfilling the Great Commission. Every church and every member is called to live on mission, and everyone in that calling is vital.

In this study, we pray a culture of “sentness” is developed in every KBC church, so every church realizes God’s purpose is to use every member to fulfill the Great Commission.

Technology in Missions
Why Technology
Why Technology

While every church should play a role in fulfilling the Great Commission, many aren’t aware that technology can help in doing so. Learn how to use technology to share the gospel anywhere, including remote areas where people have never heard about Christ.

4.5 billion people are unreached with the gospel. 154,937 people die daily without Christ. So many without the gospel, yet our world today is increasingly accessible to almost anyone, anywhere thanks to technology. There are now more cell phones on the planet than there are people. As believers, we must harness the technology of the day to reach more people with the gospel of Jesus. Despite the growing connection of the world, there are still “billions who can’t access God’s Word because of oppression, illiteracy, and limited electricity and internet.” This is where our new partnership with Renew World Outreach comes in. 

Renew is a ministry which develops technology, training, and audio/visual equipment to help reach people in their heart language, anywhere in the world. They develop equipment such as solar video projectors, lightstream Wi-Fi hotspots, solar audio Bibles, and micro SD cards to share the gospel and make disciples of Jesus among the billions of peoples and places that are unreached. KBC Missions Mobilization Team is here to help you connect with technology resources that will leverage your gospel impact around the world, particularly among hard to reach peoples and places.
