As we witness the emergence of a truly global Church we, like many other mobilizers, recognize the importance of a global-level platform for communication and cooperation. To quote the late Dr. Ralph Winter, “The need for global-level planning, coordination and strategy is much, much more relevant today than it has ever been in human history.” At the same time, we are witnessing the maturation of mobilization ministry. Increasingly we understand that mobilization involves intentionally leading churches and individuals in those churches as they progress from Discovery of God and His Mission, Development of the skills and abilities to effectively participate with God on Mission and the Deployment of disciples to reach the lost especially the unreached or unengaged peoples. This requires resources and relationships beyond the scope of any individual or ministry.
