How many times have you heard, “If I had only known, I could have helped”? SBCGC.net provides a platform where members can communicate their needs to each other. Some may help by volunteering to complete tasks. Others may be business owners who are able to help professionally. Additionally, members can post needs to buy or borrow things. In all cases, members are interacting with each other in a setting outside the walls of the church, which leads to a more socially connected congregation.
There are over 47,000 Southern Baptist Churches and nearly 15 million members. Every church has been given the same marching orders by Jesus; “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” The kingdom would increase if every church supported each other in the carrying out of this mission. SBCGC.net offers a platform where churches post the tasks and resources they need. Fellow churches and church members respond with offers to help.
Occasionally, everyone needs to discuss a ministry project or personal issue with someone who has faced the same challenges and had a successful outcome. Whether it is an hour or several hours, schedule time to meet personally, via video chat, or a phone call with someone who can give you some really good advice. SBC Global Collaboration Network provides the communication channel where you can post your request for help and others can respond with offers to help.
Ministry leaders, paid or voluntary, often feel a lack of comradery, resources, solutions, and encouragement. How can leaders develop a sense of comradery, tap into resources, discover solutions, and find encouragement? What if ministry leaders in all the SBC’s 47,000 plus affiliated churches and mission organizations communicated their needs to each other? For instance, ministry leaders who champion the cause of discipleship to students can collaborate with thousands of other student leaders. Everyone has the same challenges, can share resources, and can provide helpful solutions to each other. SBC Global Collaboration Network, SBCGC.net, provides a private group communication channel where ministry leaders can post “in search of” requests so that other leaders can respond with offers to help.
