What We Do

Priority: Planting

GTBN connects individuals and teams with resources to aide in starting all kinds of churches in all kinds of places for all kinds of people. We partner with SBC related Baptist state conventions and regional planting networks. For more information on how you may engage as a planter or partner for a new church, click here.


Priority: Leadership Development

GTBN seeks to enhance the quality of leadership for individuals, churches, and organizations.

Personal development is a key component of leadership development. It's all about personal transformation and self care, family care, and others care resulting in greater self, social, and spiritual awareness. It also involves understanding your unique design as a person (personality type), your conflict resolution style, and love language.

GTBN encourages every leader to create a personal development plan (PDP) in the contexts of spiritual life, family life, body life (physical and emotional health), work/ministry life, and community life. GTBN can provide a template and a coach to assist in the creation of this plan.

Professional development is a key component of leadership development. It's all about clarifying passion and calling and learning core competencies that build character and confidence. In a professional environment, leaders don't just tell - they ask powerful questions. Asking powerful questions is a coaching technique.

GTBN encourages every leader to enter into an ongoing coaching relationship with a competent coach who understands the value of asking powerful questions and mutual support. GTBN can refer competent, certified coach upon request.


Priority: Awakening

Healthy congregations are key to the Great Commission. Such churches make disciples for Jesus Christ, engaging them for ministry in their communities and across the globe.

GTBN can assign a competent team of change agents to assist your church leadership team (or you the pastor) in mapping your growth path and building agreement for a refocus process for your church, or in some cases a replant process.


Priority: Networking

GTBN provides many opportunities for connecting like-minded individuals and groups to ministry opportunities. Our annual missions banquet is a great opportunity for connection with local, national and international ministry partners.
