GATHERING MEN & WOMEN OF ISSACHAR

June 4, 2014
 

Overview

The Issachar Initiative exists to serve the body of Christ by bringing vision and focus so its resources are strategically directed toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. To become a trusted source of information influencing ministry activities and financial investments toward the least-reached people of the world helping to fulfill the missional aspect of the Great Commission.
 
Every Christian leader should be able to summarize in a few sentences what the global Church is attempting to do to fulfill the Great Commission in obedience to Scripture. Issachar Summits are designed to challenge Ministry Leaders to send more workers to the least reached parts of the world and to challenge Marketplace Leaders to increase their giving to these same areas.
 
Together we will raise up an army of men and women of Issachar for our generation, who understand the times and know from Scripture what the Church should do. Issachar Summits  are designed to educate, inspire and equip marketplace and ministry leaders to use their influence, their expertise and their resources to help Extend the Reach of the Church!
