GCS (Great Commission Society) is a UK based ‘non-denominational’ organisation that exists to communicate the Gospel message with excellence and expedience. GCS brings a fresh, dynamic, Gospel-centric, and strategic approach to global evangelism. Our commitment is to communicate the Gospel to every person in the world using a three-fold process of ‘Reaching-to-Sow’, ‘Teaching-to-Sow’’ and ‘Serving-to-Sow’’.
GCS develop innovative methods and create more opportunities to spread and proclaim the Gospel. With out-of-the-box thinking and cutting-edge methodologies, the GCS team deliver Gospel-centric, operationally innovative evangelistic process optimisation strategies, that yield significant and lasting fruit. GCS has a growing team of evangelists serving within our ministry, with a lot of experience sharing one-to-one across cultures as well as speaking to secular groups, such as: schools; universities; prisons; detention centres; Sports and Fitness; New Age events; market place meetings; rehabilitation centres; street work; public meetings, etc… Our team come with God’s anointing, passion and the experience required, helping build momentum in evangelism in the local context.
We do this by providing a substantial training curriculum (200 Hour Module Training), reinforced with a robust mentoring programme to equip Christians for effective personal evangelism and discipleship training. Historically, evangelism has become an impersonal event or presentation that stops as soon as it is finished without maintaining any integral part of personal day to day living. Our objective is to work closely with individuals, groups and church movements around the world to provide relevant training to help them practically reach out to friends, family and acquaintances with the clarity of the Gospel message through both words and actions. The combination of ‘theoretical study’ and ‘putting it into practice’ is where we see most fruit. Experienced evangelists take students into the mission field for “on-the-job” training, to provide real life witnessing situations to help people learn how to share the Gospel and how to lead someone to Christ. In a nutshell, GCS help others share the Gospel more effectively.
Keeping evangelism as our central focus, the society also responds to a wide range of humanitarian needs, from the provision of aid for those facing natural or man-made disaster, to providing free educational support to students, government organisations and the general public to promote human welfare and social justice. This is an area of expertise where we support churches and organisations bridge the gap with the secular world to enable them to advance the Gospel.
Our continual challenge as a non-denominational ministry is to adapt to the fast changing world around us, to infuse excellence in evangelism throughout our programmes, and to find new ways to reach lost people. Together with our partners, we are serving in over 100 countries, to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on equipping the global church.
GCS also provide the following programmes:
Short to Long Term Mission opportunities
In conjunction with our partners, GCS are able to host and organise short-term mission trips world-wide, lasting anywhere from 1 week to 1 year.
