The posture of the Global: Church Forum (GCF) is listening and collaboration. 

The Global:Church Forum is a gathering allowing the western church to hear afresh what God is doing in the Global South and East and find out how ministry is done within the context of different cultures and economies. GCF creates a context for Western church, ministry and organization leaders to hear what God is doing around the world, and then understand how this movement in the non-western world affects movements, models and methodologies pursued by those in the west.

In 2012, GCF convened in Chicago and was attended by representatives from 98 Christian, nonprofit organizations and speakers from more than 23 countries. Partnering organizations included Compassion International, Crossway Publishers, The Global Executive Leadership Forum, CreatePossible, re:source global and Christianity Today.

In 2013, GCF will be hosted by Kasr El Dobara Church in Egypt. For more information about future GCF events and partner opportunities, contact Tommy Lee at
