GO is CLT’s gospel-centered international initiative to share Christ’s love in tangible ways, in some of the world’s poorest communities in rural Ghana. Annually, CLT partners with different teams of volunteers, who travel to rural Ghana to conduct specific need-based projects, which provide much-needed assistance to these communities. The teams also conduct a range of outreach activities that focus on reaching all age groups within the communities with the gospel message.
CLT works with local community faith-based organizations to conduct this outreach, focusing on growing the faith of the youth, young adults, and the older generation. Therefore the foundation and structure of the Global Outreach Program are based on this goal.
Multiple avenues and approaches are utilized to share the gospel message. These include kid’s ministry events, student campus outreaches, sports camps, community events, need-based service projects, gospel crusades, and street evangelism. CLT partners with churches in these rural communities in conducting these outreaches. The input of local churches is always valuable for the successful planning and implementation of these outreaches. The participation of the local churches is also key to the success of the “post-outreach” phase (after our teams leave) as they are best positioned (and are most effective) to conduct long term on-going follow-up and discipleship of the new believers who are born into Christ as a result of the outreach events. Follow-up (nurturing, discipline, and mentoring) and establishment of new believers in the body of Christ is a critical component of CLTs global outreach structure – caring for new believers so they don’t slip back and “fall away”. We work with the local churches to ensure that sufficient workers are trained to take up the follow-up of new believers.
With the urgency of reaching all people (and all generations) with the gospel, CLT’s Global Outreach Initiative is tailored to reach all these groups. Programs are prayerfully planned and developed to utilize an approach that best communicates the gospel to each of these groups.
