Million Missionary Movement

God's Challange: To pray for a God sized goal bigger than you can do.

God's Answer: Spark a "Movement" that will launch one million missionaries into the harvest.

GCWM

  • Goal:  Reach Every Tribe, Tongue, People, Nation
  • Priority:  Unreached/Unengaged
  • Means:  Equip and Send Out Saints into the harvest
  • Focus:  Mentoring and Equiping Pastors and Leaders around the world

Goal: One million self replicating missionaries from the whole Body of Christ working to produce disciples making disciples of Jesus Christ in every people.

Matt 28:18-20  “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”-NASB

Priority: Unreached/Unengaged Peoples

  • Peoples that already have the Gospel: 46.3% world’s population. 96.7% Missionaries
  • Unreached/Unengaged Peoples: 53.7% world’s population 3.3% Missionaries

Gateway’s Strategy is to Focus on Mentoring and Equipping Pastors and Leaders

2 Tim. 2:2  “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 

  • Self Replicating Church leaders in the nations: keys to building and sustaining a movement of Christ among unreached peoples
  • Equipping church leaders in areas already reached: the key in building the base for sending self replicating missionaries to train others
  • Equipping self replicating leaders in the nations in their own context:  they are already targeted to work among unreached peoples and are the most effective means of completing the challenge of the million missionary movement

For disciple-making leaders to be effective they have to be:

  • Called: Gateway Center teams coach those who have a heart for mission and help them define their call. 
  • Equipped:  Gateway Center offers seminars, mentoring, strategic warfare training, mission training in Biblical and cultural aspects, training in discipleship and church planting. Short-term mission opportunities help candidates gain experience.
  • Sent: Gateway works with churches and individuals to help both those who are sent and those who send to form a team. 1 Sam 30:24- “..those who stay have equal share as those who go…”
  • Covered with Prayer: Gateway teams equip churches, leaders, and missionaries through training in intercession as well as assistance in forming prayer teams.
