The Future of the Global Church

Share a Word Speak up and share your predictions

Share a Word Finished

Share_a_word_map_rgb_teaser.jpgA special thanks to everyone who submitted their thoughts about the future of the global church during our Share a Word campaign. We have finished collecting words and have created the graphic map. Download the map by clicking this link.


The Share a Word map was created by taking words users submitted and creating a graphical word map. To go along with your free map download, we have provided you with five suggestions for how to use this map to its full potential. You can also join in on further discussion of resources like this on our Facebook page.

Five Ways to Use Your Share-a-Word Map

  1. Use it as a background on your computer to remind you to pray for the global church.
  2. Print it out and post it on your bathroom mirror or your refrigerator. Pray for the global church as you get ready for work or prepare dinner.
  3. Consider doing a presentation about praying for the global church to encourage others to begin praying. Use the map in your PowerPoint to illustrate what people think about the future of the global church.
  4. Use it as a conversation starter with your kids. Talk about the words and what they mean. Think about what a church with those descriptions would be like. If you have small children, give them a copy and some crayons so they can color as you talk.
  5. Use it with your small group or Sunday school during prayer time. Have each person choose a word and either praise God for what He is doing or pray for a need associated with that word.
