Lots of spiritual lessons learnt and fellowship with others was an additional blessing" remarked Pastor Emmanuel Dass from India. Rick Rebstak of USA observed that "as one of the youngest delegates, I was inspired by the faith and initiative of those around me. I have come away from Ghana 2013 with fire to finish the task" Rev Daniel Sappor of Source of Light, Ghana also noted that "the program has been able to address the neglected task of the Church which is Discipleship. It helped me to focus on some specific areas that I need to work more when it comes to discipleship". Another key Leader to comment on the impact of GHANA 2013 was Fred Dimado, Director of Pioneers- Africa. He observed that "It's been a great consultation. Uncle Gbile's sessions on discipleship were so faithful to Scripture and so penetrating to the heart that one can't leave here and return to a business as usual mode and practice. In addition, the combination of personal/corporate prayer and compelling global mission facts, has stirred a fresh commitment in me to keep pressing on in His name. He died for ALL and ALL should have the chance to hear the gospel at least once. May the Lord of the harvest help us all". The many outcomes of GHANA 2013 included the formation of the Africa Missions Association (AfMA),

At the conference 2013GEMA's President, Pastor Enoch Nyador who is also the 250 commitments made to engage 150 unengaged unreached people groups, resolutions by the Nations represtend and a declaration dubbed the GHANA 2013 Challenge which was the response of African Mission Leaders to the mandate of discipling the nations. ( More info on the outcomes under "The Fruits of GHANA 2013) Another major highlight was the launching of the GC Network. The Global Great Commission Network is an online Social Media platform that seeks to help with the interaction of Mission Leaders around the World and also with the effective follow-up of GHANA 2013. It is hoped that participants will continue the dialogue and also other Missions leaders globally who were not at the Consultation can also join in and together engage each other on how to finish the task and disciple all peoples. Anyone interested can sign up at http://gcnetwork.ggcn.org Most participants will agree with Dr. Stephen Mbogo that GHANA 2013 was " a great conference that brought Mission Leaders from all over Africa. It's inspiring, and has fired us up to finish the task of the Great Commission" That reiterates the prayer of the Coordinators, Speakers, Participants and Observers that GHANA 2013 truly fires Leaders up to finish the remaining task of the Great Commission.
