God’s Plan for Sharing (GPS)

God's Plan for Sharing (GPS)

God’s Plan for Sharing (GPS) is a strategic framework to assist Southern Baptist churches see the Great Commission fulfilled in our lifetime. Its goal:

Every Believer Sharing, Every Person Hearing by 2020

GPS is a two-part process:

1. Churches intentionally align their evangelism ministry according to four biblical components:

  • Praying – Every church praying for every lost person
  • Equipping – Equipping every believer to share as a trained witness
  • Sowing – Every lost person receiving a witness
  • Harvesting – Every church harvesting and celebrating every salvation response

2. Churches participate in coordinated biannual evangelism campaigns that help them accomplish the GPS goal.
