Great Commission United (GCU) based in Michigan, U.SA., is a Chaplaincy based organisation operating with a Global Ministry.
Apostle William Hodge, CEO, of Great Commission United continually emphasises to newly ordained chaplains, and street pastor that the need for ministry not to be the identity of the believer is paramount, but that their identity is and has to be in Christ Jesus. With an emphasis on one to one evangelical approaches and pray booths at street side locations. Great Commission United takes the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ on to the streets and out of the Church environment.
Prayer at the base of Mount Hor.
Teaching and preaching takes place within class and church environment’s to edify and train the believer to go into the community and experience the power of God at street level.
GCU (Great Commission United) which had already existed for some seventeen years, in a slightly different form, developed into what it is today, out of that shared vision and the beginnings of the development of a website. Many individual Christian Ministries now come together to make GCU into the potent force for Christian Evangelism and Street Ministry that it now is today, the vision outworks itself into so many varied forms depending on the individual ministry which takes part within GCU.
Clearly, The Holy Spirit is still working today and as a direct result of that meeting and our continued fellowship together. I have had the privilege to meet so many special individuals and experience so many varied forms of ministry depicting the faith in Jesus Christ. In fact, throughout these last few years I have personally experienced the Holy Spirit working within individual lives enabling the developing of individuals to move out in faith, whilst developing their individual visions, always completely inline with the Christian Biblical scriptures.
Jesus Christ, is the same, yesterday, today and forever…
From the Eagles Nest groups in Detroit, to Victory Biker Church International and the fellowship worshiping at Christ The Rock. The amazing exploits of Apostle Daryl Davies and the street ministry in and around Detroit, to Pastor Lisa and her husband as they work within their individual communities. Not forgetting the work of the Christian Political Commentator Ron Edwards, of the Ron Edwards Notebook. Then there are the very special Spiritual Encounters led by His wife Denise Edwards. Another, special Husband and Wife Ministry team led by Debbie and Terry Montambo and various Prison Ministries. Then there is Lori and Tim Layne with Pilots for Christ, along with the many care home ministries and some individually prophetic ministries. You can not forget the outreach in to Oshkosh as so many chaplains come to serve those who attend the air show though the auspices of MASA, the list is endless, with countless names to be thanked for their individual and corporate service to others.
However, its all about Jesus and service…..
Whether, you are teaching chaplaincy classes, helping the development of individual ministries, even preaching and testifying of the Love of Christ Jesus for the world today, whatever the form the individual ministry takes, its all about service.
