Global local is a four-year project which started in October of 2020. Our big goal is to have a 40-day global local program take place in hundreds of towns and cities all over Germany by 2024.
But of course we will have take it step by step. Many parts of it have yet to be developed. Here is an overview of what we plan to do.
Global local is meant to spread in concentric circles over the course of the following years.
You could schedule a 40-day global local program for Lent in 2022 even now. Other time slots could be used as well .
Of course we are going to develop the program materials package and all of our ideas over the next few years. And we will work on checklists and support for local outreach work.
Moreover, we are going to introduce global local at suitable events with an info booth. Or we will support you in doing so.
Materials & Ideas
What is a suitable time slot for a global local program in your town?
Naturally, Lent right before Easter might be a good time. So, instead of going seven weeks without something, you could go seven weeks WITH global local.
You can also fit a 40-day program between Easter and Pentecost.
Or maybe use the start of a new school year to introduce a new focus to your small groups and bible study groups? Reformation Day could also be incorporated.
Global local wants to help facilitate a renewal within the church towards more cultural diversity so we will be able to discover the richness of God’s people even in our hometowns..
