GCR Support Team


GCR Site Icon

God brought us together to equip the body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission and to disciple the nations. Our vision is to teach the nations as Christ Jesus has instructed us to do. We are all involved in some sort of training and equipping ministry, managing Bible Schools, teaching and equipping the children of God and guiding people to be activated and mobilized in the Kingdom of God. Although we are all involved in our own individual callings, we have made time to work together as a Great Commission Resources Support Team.

We are available to assist anyone who requests help and we have embarked on an initiative to equip as many people as possible to carry out this all important task. Our goal is to utilize as many disciples as we can all over the world and equip them as GCR Activation Teams.
