- GCN Equips Pastors, so
- Pastors can Equip Parents, so
- Parents can Equip their Children
1- We are a vibrant network of Christian leaders who are deeply committed to serving pastors.
2- Our mission is to empower pastors with the tools they need to excel in next-generation discipleship.
3- We do this by equipping pastors to see themselves as both shepherds and captains, inspiring them to take on the mantle of spiritual leadership to equip their parents with a zeal and passion like never before.
4- When pastors embrace their role as spiritual captains, they become powerful advocates for parents, training them to take on the spiritual battles that are so critical to the well-being of their children. The most thrilling part of our work is seeing parents rise to the challenge, eagerly embracing their calling and taking ownership of their duties as spiritual mentors in both the home and the church.
5- Together, we are creating a bright future for the next generation of believers, one that is filled with hope, inspiration, and purpose.
At the Finish Line Our
Children are the future: The children of today will grow up to become the leaders, decision-makers, and influencers of tomorrow. It is therefore important to invest in their upbringing and ensure that they have a solid foundation for their future.
Spiritual growth: Proverbs 22:6 specifically emphasizes the importance of training children in the ways of God. By teaching children about God and helping them develop a relationship with Him, we can help them grow spiritually and develop a strong faith that will sustain them throughout their lives.
Impact on society: The way we raise and train our children can have a profound impact on society as a whole. Children who are raised with strong values and character traits are more likely to contribute positively to their communities and make a difference in the world.
Values and character: The values and character traits that children learn in their formative years will shape who they become as adults. Training children according to Proverbs 22:6 can help instill positive values and character traits such as honesty, integrity, compassion, and respect.
