Their loss is Globals gain (maybe)

There are dozens of us that I know of. Young church planters and pastors who are independent and not really attached to anything after getting pushed/squeezed/shunned out.

There is a friend in South West FL who is running over 200 with 2 daughter works and a soon to be spanish work less than 2 years into it.

Theres another friend in the midwest and another fellow who I know in AZ who is going gangbusters.

Seriously, theres alot of low hanging fruit to be harvested if someone would just pick up the telephone and give a good pitch as to how they could add value to these young ministers lives. All the groups ever show is what they want, not what they offer.

The only thing I see that is remotely what I could/would join is Global Network. There is a TON of pent up demand for a alternative that respects the fact that standards and secondary teachings should be left to the local church.

I have looked closely at Global as well. I liked numbers of things about it, but it would seem that there is pressure to conform to a group mindset as well. Just in alternative ways.

I was in it for many years. Involved with the inception of the Network in the year following the AS exodus. In most of the conferences I attended the speakers were most always trinitarians. No Acts 2:38, One God preaching ever.
If you're alright with the Assemblies of God you well fit well with Global. Some Assemblies of God are listed in their directory.

I could never be comfortable in Global. I am seriously considering ACN.

It's a fellowship of ministers. What is your discomfort?

And what is ACN?

Why not Global? I merely ask out of curiosity. I don't know any of the leaders there. Doctrinal/philosophical or personality issues?

Too cozy with Trinitarianism.
