The Global Church Network was founded in 2002 in Orlando, Florida. Since its birth, The Global Church Network has grown to more than 2,700 different denominations and organizations and more than 700,000 churches worldwide. GCN is synergizing and mobilizing the entire body of Christ toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission by the two-thousand-year birthday of the church.

The founder of the Global Church Network, Dr. James O. Davis, states, “Dr. Timothy Hill and I have synergized our efforts together for many years, towards the completion of the Great Commission in our generation. Together, we were fortunate to launch FINISH 2030 at Castle Church, Wittenberg, Germany, On November 1st, 2017. At the gravesite of Martin Luther, the founder of the protestant reformation, we committed to find, intercede, network, invest, send, and harvest through 2030!

One of the most creative, innovative, and strategic methods the Global Church Network is using to complete the Great Commission is the Global Hubs of Christianity. The Global Hubs of Christianity were first launched with founding Paster David Sobrepena, at Word of Hope in Manila, Philippines, in 2014.
Currently, GCN has more than 90 Hubs strategically placed throughout the Body of Christ. A Global Hub synergizes the best relationships, systematizes is the best training, and strategizes for unreached people groups. Additionally, the Global Hubs of Christianity will provide facilitation of expedited Bible translation for the remaining unreached people groups in the years to come. It is estimated that by 2022, there will be at least 200 Hubs, and 800 Hubs by 2030.
