This past June, the Southern Baptist Convention launched what some have touted to be one of the most historic of movements: the Great Commission Resurgence. Time will tell what the new GCR Task Force will recommend. As they do their work, the GCR team has put together a web-site calling people to pray for a/the Great Commission Resurgence.
According to the site:
Why We Need A Great Commission Resurgence:
The churches of the Southern Baptist Convention are yearning for a new day of Great Commission awakening and commitment. They sense both a need and a rare opportunity to come together to reclaim the missional vision that brought us together from the first.
A new generation of Southern Baptists is ready for deployment in the service of the Great Commission ““ and waiting to see if Southern Baptists are ready to send, support, and propel this generation out to the nations. Will we do what it takes to send those God is calling?
Many of our churches ““- perhaps 70% “” are plateaued or declining. They need a Great Commission Resurgence starting right where they are. A Great Commission Resurgence has to start right at home.
Southern Baptists have much work to do reaching America in a multicultural, multiethnic, multilingual era. We need a Great Commission Resurgence that will make us do whatever it takes to reach America with the Gospel.
Southern Baptists need a Great Commission Resurgence that will reorder our priorities, refocus our vision, reclaim our mission, and set our hearts on seeing the nations exult in the name of Jesus.
