Reclaim the heart of the Great Commission in your church through The Great Disconnect!
What is the Great Disconnect?
The Great Disconnect uncovers data showing that inaccurate assumptions and shocking biblical illiteracy are running rampant among U.S. Christians. We want to help you close that gap and reinvigorate your church’s heart for the Great Commission! As a church leader, you have a great opportunity to help your church pursue missions work that is efficient, effective, and sustainable.
Are We All Called?
85% of pastors believe that missions is a mandate for all Christians, but only 42% of practicing Christians agree.
Is Your Strategy Working?
One in five pastors says their church does not try to measure the success of their missions work.
Rethinking Missions Strategies
22% of U.S. pastors say their church has never considered changing how it financially supports missions work.
They’re Looking to the Church!
Christians are looking first to their church’s recommendations when it comes to making decisions about how to give to global missions.
When the pandemic began, Americans abroad—missionaries included—scrambled to get home. Meanwhile, flights were being cancelled and national lockdowns were announced, forcing missions trips to be delayed or even cancelled.
COVID-19 or otherwise, there will always be disruptions that impact international missions work. Is your church using a missions strategy that will allow your efforts to continue?
