The Global Great Commission Network is part of a global Church and mission force. In order for the Global Great Commission Network (GGCN) to achieve its vision to “stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation”, many
volunteers are needed, especially at the local, grassroots level. Every voice in the development, growth, and outreach of GGCN is important.

Discipleship Survey & Discipleship Resources Champion
The Global Great Commission Network exists to stimulate worldwide mission efforts that promote the making of disciples of every people in our generation. As a priority project, the GGCN has created an interactive discipleship assessment survey tool to aid in the efforts of making disciples of every people. This tool can be found on the Global Great Commission Network web site (www.ggcn.org) where individuals, churches, and other groups can participate. After taking the survey, users receive an immediate Survey Analysis response.
The Discipleship Survey (individual or organization) champion needs to have a burden to see discipleship training broadly provided to the church and mission efforts, especially geared toward Great Commission activities and callings. This person manages the online Discipleship Survey tool , including the implementation of various versions of the Discipleship Survey to be made available to different cultures and languages. This person corresponds with survey participants and seeks to guide them to online or other helpful resources in furthering discipleship training and practice, and in a broader sense seeks to locate and promote the application of discipleship resources in general.
