Motivating and Helpful Structures for Involved Christians

We all want GO 2020 to involve as many Christians as possible and be implemented in the best way possible. The existing structures of partners in Go 2020 should carry the main weight of the actual implementation. However, some additional structure can help, in case it doesn’t unduly restrict or demotivate the involvement. These additional structures are intended to multiply scope and effectiveness and to inform, involve, equip and empower Christians.

Organizational Structure

GO 2020 is meant to be more like a movement than an organization. Every church, denomination and ministry can participate in its own way. A “light” and dynamic organizational structure is facilitating a broad participation.


Participating stakeholders like churches, denominations, ministries etc.


Global Advisory Board

Group of well-known and accepted key people that support the vision through endorsing, making connections etc.

Building Task Forces with Inspiring Leaders

With “inspiring motivation” it usually proves very helpful to form “operations boards” and/or “task forces” consisting of key leaders from denominations, minis­tries, etc. which are actively implementing the evangelistic emphasis. We expect those kind of structures will be even more helpful in a one-month-long emphasis.
