The First Global HUB Of Christianity Launched In North America! Read About It Today!
Dear Visionary Leader:
The spark of revival has been ignited in North America! Kingdom-minded Christian leaders came together at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas, on November 11-13, 2014, to launch the first-ever Global HUB of Christianity In North America. This is the first HUB of thirty-five HUBS planned in the United States, along with another seven in Canada. We are off to great start, with another 16 HUBS already scheduled to be established in 2015.
We heard key teaching presentations from Dr. Elmer Towns, Cofounder of Liberty University and Dean of the Global Church Learning Center, Dr. David Dykes, Senior Pastor of Green Acres Baptist Church and CoChair/Healthy Church, Dr. David Sobrepeña, Founding Pastor of Word Of Hope, Manila, Philippines and CoChair/East Asia/Church Planting, Dr. Alex Mitala, Chairman Emeritus of New Birth Fellowship, Kampala, Uganda, and CoChair/Global Mobilization/Central Africa, Dr. John Ed Mathison, Pastor Emeritus of Frazier Memorial United Methodist Church, Montgomery, Alabama, and CoChair/North America, Dr. Slavik Radchuk, Kiev, Ukraine, and CoChair/Russian World and Dr. James O. Davis, CoChair/Global Networking, Orlando, Florida.
Each of these powerful presentations were taught from the Global Church Training Curriculum that was printed by Green Acres Baptist Church and given to all who joined us for the US Launch of the Global HUBS.
We are experiencing the circumference of Christianity! We are watching a seismic shift of the West going to the Rest to the Best around the world going to the Rest of the world. The glorious gospel that went out from the west over the last 200 years ago to the ends of the earth is now coming back from the ends of the earth to the West.
We are grateful for the Global HUBS of Christianity that have been launched in many world regions in the last two years. As HUBS continue to be deployed, we are believing the Lord for a sweeping, weeping and reaping revival.
* Synergize the Best Relationships *
From the very beginning of the Billion Soul Network, one of the strategic goals has been to find out what the Lord is doing throughout the earth and tie relational knots for the completing of the Great Commission. When pastors and leaders come to a US-based HUB, they will have the opportunity to meet some of the finest Kingdom minded pastors and leaders throughout their area. The more we synergize together, the more we can evangelize together!
* Systematize the Best Resources *
The Global Church Training Curriculum was finalized and launched in Northern and Southern India in September, 2014. The response was more than we could ever imagine! The top 30 courses of the Global Church Learning Center were developed into a powerful and personal, life-changing curriculum to help pastors regardless of the size of their church to develop leadership, missions, multiplication, discipleship and networking skills! Everyone who attends a US-based hub will also gain access to the Global Church Learning Center. Our philosophy of training includes online, on-ground and on-time.
* Strategize for Unreached People *
During HUB training, the ultimate focus is to bring men and women to a face-to-face understanding of who Jesus Christ is and to make a way for them to find Christ as their personal Savior. We do not know of a Christ centered pastor anywhere, who does not want more souls to be saved and disciples to be developed toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission in their area or region. Presently, there are more than 6,000 unreached people groups worldwide. Through synergistic networking, we believe the global Church communicated the Gospel to every one of them.
On the Day of Pentecost there was a “sound of a mighty rushing wind.” The Holy Spirit is pictured as “the wind.” There are at least three reasons why the Holy Spirit is pictured like “the wind.” First, the wind is “invisible.” Just as the wind is invisible the Holy Spirit is invisible. Yet, even though a person cannot see the wind, a person can see the effects of the wind. We are able to see the effects of the wind of the Spirit!
Second, the wind is irresistible. We cannot put wind in bottle or make it stop blowing. We cannot tell where the wind came from and cannot predict where the wind is going. As to the Holy Spirit, we cannot predict where the Spirit has come from and where the Holy Spirit will go next. In John 3:8, Nicodemus says, “the Holy Spirit is like the wind” as He goes where He wants to go.”
Third, the wind is indispensable. We cannot live a day on the planet without the wind. As Christians, we cannot live a Christ-like life without the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. In the days ahead, we need the “spark” of the Spirit to be spread by the wind of the Spirit! May we join synergistic forces with our fellow servants for the greatest revival in American history and not care who gets the credit as long as Christ gets the glory!
