Save the Date!
You don't want to miss this. Mark your calendars now and start making plans. June 5-8, 2017, Go To Nations will be hosting our fourth missionary reunion and conference, Gathering of the Finishers. Our time will consist of four days of worship, prayer, fellowship, fun excursions, relaxation, and strategic alignment, with the aim of our becoming the Teleiotes, the Finishers. All of your expenses will be covered once you arrive for the reunion. We have worked with Regional Directors to determine the best dates for families with children enrolled in schools and hope this time frame will work with everyone's schedule.
As we approach the Year 2020, we are looking intently at our 2020 Ministry Goals. When we look at our goals in comparison to where we are with documented statistics, we have already surpassed our Church Planting goal, and have nearly reached our Nation goal and our Bible School Graduates goal. That is huge! We want to blow them all out of the water for the glory of our King!
2,000,000 Souls ~ 1,524,538 through 2014
2,400 Church Plants ~ 4,708 through 2014 -we increased the goal to 5,000 for the printing of the Reunion Flyer, and our goal will be re-evaluated to keep us motivated!
2,000 National Missionaries ~ 521 documented through 2014 (Our no. does not reflect the national workers that are an extension of GTN Global Ministries who do not directly report to a GTN Missionary.)
1,000 USA Missionaries, WHQ Staff and Volunteers ~ 191 through 2014
100 Nations ~ We're in 96 through 2014
We chose the WWII theme because of that generations' commitment and fortitude to fight and build for the sake of future generations and their commitment to unify their troops. As our missionary numbers grow, our teams are going to become more and more multicultural and multi-generational. With our history, the resources made available to us, and our commitment and integrity to seeking God's will, we can help complete the Great Commission in our generation, or at least lay the foundation for the next generation to do so!
God has positioned us for our greatest years and fruit yet to come as we stand on the shoulders of our forefathers and those that have gone before us. As a ministry, "We know where we came from. We know who we are. We know where we are going. And, we know how to get there." Because of this, we are working diligently through our strategic planning to widen and lengthen our foundation, to strengthen our stakes and to make room for growth on every level. As we evaluate our beachheads globally and the national movements for which GTN missionaries have served as catalysts, we believe that we are being positioned for an hour to start movements on every continent and in every nation where we serve, with more beachheads being established with multicultural teams.
We so look forward to our gathering and anticipate a holy outpouring of the Holy Spirit, a time of powerful and intimate worship, apostolic mantles being released and increased and the prophetic Word of the Lord coming forth to encourage us and set things in motion for the future.
We had 100% concurrence from the 2010 Reunion to attempt to have it again at the same place as last time. The children all asked if we could please host a reunion every year as they bonded and made new friends from all over the world! We are pleased to announce that we were able to once again reserve the beautiful Ocean Walk Resort in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Flyers went out in the GTN Receipt Letters last spring and this summer to all GTN partners. This will be repeated again in this fall and next spring. Please encourage your partners to take part in making this glorious event a reality. Each contribution will go towards the whole budget to be used for everyone. It truly will be our best reunion yet; and as the theme proclaims, WE WILL BECOME KNOWN AS 'THE FINISHERS'!
I ask that you click below to indicate if you 'plan to be here', your 'plans are tentative', or you already know there is absolutely 'no way possible to attend the reunion'.
With great confidence in all that God is doing for, in and through us!

we know where we are going
As we set our course to finish the race, mobilizing future generations to surpass us and igniting global movements to reach the remaining unreached, we are gleaning from our fathers, the Traditionalists, who laid down their lives for future generations and purposed to unify themselves despite gender or race in order to finish the task.
By the grace of God, we will build multi-cultural teams who will complete our God given mission like David‘s Mighty Men.
We will Seek God Hear His Voice Rescue the Lost Overtake the Enemy Recover All
3,065,208,000 are still lost.
‘Til 2015, over 5,138,600 have received ministry and over 1.5 million souls have been won to Jesus Christ. Our global impact covers 96 nations across the globe, 4,708 churches planted, and 23,013 Bible School Graduates through Go To Nations missionaries.
Help us to rally, empower, envision and ignite 225 Go To Nations’ missionaries June 5-8, 2017, as we come together for 4 days of worship, prayer, fellowship and strategic alignment to become The Teleiotes, The Finishers.
Do you see what this means-all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running-and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed-that exhilarating finish in and with God-he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
Hebrews 12:1-3 The Message
My Dear Colleagues,
I am reminding you that the 2017 Gathering of Finishers is less than a year away. Lots of wonderful things are planned, but we have to raise the remainder of our budget for it to become our reality.
One-half of our budget has been met in honor of our precious sister, Roxanne Williamson. She would have loved nothing more than to leave you with a gift, a gift of fellowship, of the Spirit and of rallying together at our reunion and conference. In honor of Roxanne, can we rally together and help raise the remaining $35,000?
I am sharing a testimony with the hope of planting a seed in your hearts. Recently I connected with some friends that had slipped off my radar. They didn’t know that Dr. George had passed away and showed incredible appreciation to him and to me. They expressed a desire to contribute something to my ministry. The thought came to me that perhaps they could send some funds toward the Reunion.
To my amazement, they sent a check to GTN right away for $300 to cover my expenses for that special event. I am thinking that you might pray to identify a donor in your 'oikos' that would do that for you and your family. Sometimes donors really want to bless you with a tangible expression of their love. Just a thought for you to consider.
