Global Resource Collective (GRC)
What does a local community look like when everyone is engaged in the same Biblical text for all ages all week long? When the Bible is open and freely studied how are lives transformed? When resources are freely shared among Churches and collaboration creates the strongest synergy locally, are we making disciples that live the life Jesus called them to? What does innovative local ministry look like in our physical context? How do we move churches from simple management to vision? These and many more questions need to be addressed.
We begun the discipleship development by collaborating with several other Churches around the world.
Our first step was simply choosing the Biblical text for the year 2018. This formed the preaching plan for the Church. With a suggested NDT (Narrow Dominant Theme) for each week. We process that text through all the branches (phases of life) and ask ourselves the hard question, how do we open the power of this text and apply it to every age? The Daily Walk, offers each day a space to enter into discipleship through community.
Beyond this, and thanks to the models already in place, in various Churches around the world we have begun to develop "Connect Group" materials for all ages. We have created an online forum for collaboration https://grc.boulder.church which creates the space for sharing resources and ideas. If you wish to join the online contact Pastor Japhet De Oliveira.
October 7-10, 2018 we will host our first GRC Round Table Leadership Retreat at Boulder Seventh-day Adventist Church, in Boulder, Colorado. Registration opens soon.
February, 17-18, 2019 we will host our first GRC Summit at Kettering Seventh-day Adventist Church, in Dayton, Ohio. Registration opens soon.
