Empowering Great Commission Organizations (GCOs) with tools and resources to move the mission forward.
Enabling believers to find meaningful impact in fulfilling the Great Commission.
Connecting individual believers around the world together to live out their roles in the God's global story.
We're connecting everyday believer with ministry needs across the globe.
It's all about the connection so that those with needs and those who can help know each other.
The process is simple but the impact is profound
You'll share your expertise and info for connecting by selecting topics about which you're comfortably having a one-hour conversation
A GCO browses the catalog and chooses a topic they want help with. The connection request will be sent to multiple KCs who have made their expertise available on the requested topics.
When a KC receives a request they can decide if it's a good match and either accept or decline.
Whoever accepts first will be connected and the request it will no longer be available to other KCs who received it.
Both the KC and GCO are sent an email so they can coordinate how they want to have the conversation.
The KC and GCO have a one-hour conversation focused on the topic requested by the GCO and they move the mission forward together
After the conversation, the KC and GCO receive a survey to provide feedback to help Switchboard continue hosting impactful conversations.
A GCO can then make additional connection requests and KCs can continue bringing their best to the Great Commission.
There are millions of believers who want to do more but don't know how. They have talents to give but don't know where to look or who to ask.
At the same time there are thousands of Great Commission Organizations and individuals (GCO) who are actively laboring in mission work globally, who feel they don't have enough help to do what God's called them to.
This leaves one group feeling like their faith and vocation are disconnected and another feeling overwhelmed and isolated.
One groups feels underutilized wondering how to steward their talents and another stuck in scarcity and tempted to bear the burden alone.
But God has gifted his church with talents and skills for a reason. And he can provide what is necessary for the mission he calls his people to. What if we could mobilize the 99% of the church to serve and support the 1% serving full-time?
As believers make Great Commission connections they discover purpose, hope, friendship and impact. They move from isolated and unengaged to serving in the mission together.
