Switchboard Great Commission Organizations (GCO) Commitment

What does it mean to be a GCO - Great Commission Organization

Switchboard Great Commission Organizations (GCO) Commitment

As a representative of a Great Commission Organization (GCO) participating in the Switchboard platform, I affirm the following commitments rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ:

Personal Commitment to Following in the Way of Jesus

I will nurture my relationship with God through reading, believing and applying God’s word; prayers of thanksgiving, repentance, and intercession for myself and others; and through active engagement in the local and global church.

Active Engagement in Gospel Ministry

Following the Apostle Paul's guidance to "Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction" (2 Timothy 4:2), I commit to actively live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My actions, decisions, and engagements on this platform will reflect the teachings and principles of Christ.

Service to the Great Commission

Emulating Jesus' mandate in Matthew 28:19-20, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you", I acknowledge my primary role to serve the Great Commission through my organization. My participation on this platform will be guided by this divine calling.

Respect and Value Time and Resources

Recognizing the teaching in 1 Peter 4:10 that "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms," I commit to respect and value the time and resources of the global church and the Kingdom Consultants. I will honor their voluntary service and engage with them in a way that upholds their dignity and respects their commitment.

Restrictions on Support Raising and Business Development

I understand and agree that the Switchboard platform is not a venue for support raising or business development. In accordance with 2 Corinthians 8:21, "For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man," I commit to uphold this rule and will use this platform solely for fostering connections, knowledge sharing, collaboration, and advancing the Great Commission.

Building Harmonious Relationships

As guided by Romans 12:10, "Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves," I pledge to foster an environment of mutual respect, appreciation, and support, nurturing a sense of community that glorifies God.

By participating in Switchboard as a GCO representative, I affirm these commitments and ground my participation in Christ-centered principles. I will strive to uphold these commitments, promoting an environment that reflects the values of the Gospel and furthers the Great Commission.
