It has been six months since we went live with the GCM Collective website and already there has been tremendous fruit. As of today, we have emails for 10,131 church planters and missional leaders who are somehow interested or connected to the collective. Of these 1,422 are part of the community site participating in the hundreds of discussions, praying for one another, sharing resources and events. Have you joined the collective to take advantage of this valuable exchange of ideas and resources?
Why Join the GCM Collective?
A Community of Missional Thinkers
Over a thousand missional leaders and thinkers are gathered together online to share insight, experiences, resources, prayer and more to help you in your effort to lead a local community on mission. Engage in meaningful conversations with others from around the world or who live near you.
Discussions & Messaging
There are numerous groups that allow you to join the conversations that are most important to you. Get a daily email digest of new conversations, reply to email to post or login to interact. A few of the groups discussions include:

Upload and share resources. The community site has an open source policy toward exchanging files. Grab the resources you see on this website and many others and edit them for your local needs. Request the resources you need to fulfill the mission. Join and download files such as:
- Contextualization Assessment Starter

Prayer & Needs
Share prayer requests and pray for one another. Prayers that are posted can include the urgency, be tagged to include the people or primary areas that need prayer. People can respond with encouragement, scripture or even let the person know they prayed for them.
Post the needs you have for resources or help for others to jump in to assist you.
Keep aware of important Missional-minded Events
Stay aware of the important missional events throughout the year on one site. Be in the know of the large national conferences but also the local training events to equip your missional community leaders. Connect with others in your city to reach the city with the gospel.
All this and much more!
