Missions Mobilization: Early Streams of the Global Missions Movement: Global Consultation on World Evangelism


GCOWE –– Global Consultation On World Evangelism


Editorial note on GCOWE:

1. GCOWE was developed by a group which included Jay Gary at the US Center for World Missions. (Gary now heads up the World Network of Religious Futurists, which is an affiliate of the World Future Society. Gary is also closely associated with New Age Robert Muller who works for the United Nations.)


2. The theology taught in the "Perspectives on the World Christian Movement" coursebook [developed at the US Center for World Missions – Jay Gary and Ralph Winter] is theosophy mixed with a Christian vernacular. This is the foundation of the belief structure that the GCOWE promotes through outreach and training including: the 'contextualized' gospel, corporate seed, Abrahamic covenant, and DAWN (Discipling A Whole Nation/ DAWN). 


3. The GCOWE agencies listed below represents only a partial listing of all the agencies which have participated in GCOWE over the years. The mission executives who attended GCOWE have the decision-making power to channel the manpower, resources, and direction of entire congregations and constituencies, globally.
