Coalition and the Great Commission: Some go. Some train. Others send.

On July 14, Bishop Todd Fulton, Mt. Moriah Outreach Center, presented a financial donation to Dr. Patricia Bailey, CEO and Founder of Global Leadership Training Center (GLTC), Winston-Salem.

This donation was one act in a series resulting from a collaboration between the Ministers’ Conference of Winston-Salem & Vicinity (MCWSV) and GLTC. The Center, which is the training arm of Master’s Touch Ministries Global Inc., is the God-given vision of Dr. Bailey and is in its 10th year of operation.

It offers intense six-month training for a new class of missionaries for mission-minded churches.

This coalition allows local churches to support the Center’s intense intern training.

Twenty-two interns from six American states (Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Texas and North Carolina) and four other nations (Belize, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and South Africa) form this year’s class.

Dr. Bailey, a Winston-Salem native, said, “Financial and other contributions help us immensely. However, to work with congregations and clergy in my hometown to train world-class leaders is a dream fulfilled.”

The Conference promotes both senders and goers through interdenominational cooperation in addressing common values.

For more than seven years, Bishop Fulton has led Mt. Moriah, where he is pastor, in medical missions’ trips in St. Kitts.

The collaboration is a “natural.”

The interaction increases local awareness of local and international challenges.

According to Bishop Fulton, “This important Kingdom work helps to undergird our brothers and sisters from abroad. We are bringing the Kingdom of heaven to earth internationally. Dr. Bailey and her staff are doing a wonderful job in teaching the world what a broad-base partnership looks like. We are honored, as the Ministers’ Conference, to be a part of this collaboration and partnership.”

Under a covenant agreement, collaboration partners leverage resources to meet mutual ministry goals both here and abroad: food and social justice, health, education and economic empowerment.

Interns and congregant members range from 18 years to over 80 years of age.

Partners clear, plow and plant a community garden at the Winston Lake YMCA.

Featured in the WXII television documentary, “Childhood Hunger: The Silent Crisis,” the project seeks to decrease local food insecurity locally.

Such hands-on training builds universal skills for personal, community and national transformation.

Conference contributions of bottled water, other goods and financial contributions help defray the Center’s training costs.

More importantly, the Conference promotes broad community awareness of a Christian worldview and practical implementation of the Great Commission.

Collaborators look forward to future community forums on local and international issues of social and food justice.

Together, collaborators seek to strengthen Church missions.
