Welcome to GCM!
Words from Roger D. McCasland, President
Welcome to Great Commission Ministries, Inc. We are a discipleship ministry that has been in existent since 1990 and got our start in Eastern Europe. We moved into India and Africa in the early 2000s and have trained literally 1000s of pastors and leaders from all over the world, and now are discipling pastors, leaders, and missionaries in 66 countries.
Many leaders have never been discipled. So when we ask the question, “Who discipled you and who are you discipling?” They answer with a statement, “I have never been discipled, so I am not sure how to make disciples.” Many will respond with how they have organized the church to teach the Word, pray with them, and worship together, but admit that no one at seminary or their commissioning organization taught them discipleship.
We hope and pray that this ministry will help you to organize your ministry into small discipleship groups. The Jesus Model of discipleship!

John 12:12-13 The crowd waved their palm leaves and stood in history as "The Holy Week", a week when they ushered Jesus into Jerusalem saying "Hosanna". Just days later, they shouted "Crucify Him!"
I'm not sure if you've been in another country, or seen how crowds can gather quickly to declare a protest, or produce a "Human Wall" to stand for something they feel very strongly about. I have never been in that kind of situation as a participant, but I have seen in person what kind of price it cost some to say, "I have been treated unfair", or, "No, my government is unfit to lead...Read More
