The Global Church Planting Network is network of primarily global south church planting initiatives. All GCPN members share the vision of a committed community of obedient disciple of Jesus within easy linguistic, social, ethnic, and geographic access of everyone on earth. Members recognize that the strategy required to realize this vision varies from one context to the another. Within GCPN, church planting strategies range from national initiatives such as European NC2P to rapidly reproducing house fellowships many within the Hindu, Buddhist, and Muslim world. GCPN does not promote a specific global goal such as a church for every 1000 people. Rather GCPN members set their own goals depending upon local needs and context.
