The Great Commission and the American Church

Leadership Network 2014 Innovations Conference


In this 19-minute session, Bob Roberts, Senior Pastor of Northwood Church in Keller, Texas, challenges us to think globally about the Kingdom of God and making disciples. He asks us to look beyond the North American church to churches worldwide for insight about growth. 



In this 4-minute follow up interview from 2014, Bob talks about how his church tries to reach nonbelievers and instructs other leaders how to do the same.

Following Jesus means fulfilling the Great Commission, regardless of your cultural context. We can learn from other believers around the world about how they are making disciples. Instead of only focusing on the North American church, turn your gaze to how God is moving in the global Church.
