One of the highlights of my year is to participate in the National Association of Evangelicals meetings. In 2011, we met in Salt Lake City and posed for the picture you see on this website. The NAE has been a leader at promoting unity in the body of Christ--and Great Commission Churches is honored to be able to participate in this wonderful ministry. Please pray that God will continue to build the NAE and all the member denominations, ministries and churches that work together to exalt the name of Jesus Christ.

Before He died on the cross, Jesus Christ prayed in John 17 for the unity of His disciples so that the world would believe in Him. Dr. Bill Bright of Campus Crusade, before he went to be with the Lord, said, "Let's put away our logos and our egos and make Jesus Christ number one."
