Taking Christ to Great Cities A Proven 5-Step Plan That Really Works
Dr. Gary Sorrells
Foreword by Dr. Howard Norton
Christ’s final words set out His eternal vision and direction for His disciples: “Go and make followers of all people in the world” (Matthew 28:19 NCV). It was part of His last will and testament. But how can you do it successfully?
In 1961, drawn together by their passion to fulfill the vision of Christ, thirty-one dedicated graduates of Abilene Christian University (ACU) moved to Brazil to ignite the flame of eternal hope in the hearts of South American people. Their plan was to plant churches in great Portuguese- and Spanish-speaking cities in the Latin world. And Great Cities Missions (GCM) was born.
Since then GCM has recruited, trained, and cared for more than 279 missionaries on 29 teams, successfully reaching multiple cities on the South American continent—missionaries such as Max and Denalyn Lucado, Bryan and Becky Gibbs, Kelley and Julie Grant, and many others.
Now, fifty years later, under the leadership of Gary Sorrells and others, GCM’s vision is ever expanding and powerful. And through their extensive experience GCM has crystalized a model for success in foreign missions. Make Your Vision Go Viral details that model in a proven 5-step plan—that really works! It’s a practical plan that every missionary in every church can follow to succeed.
