Call2all is about all nations, all spheres of society, and reaching every unreached person in the world.
It is a collaborative movement that strategizes and puts into action the most effective ways to go where the Church is NOT, rather than where it is.
Call2all does not replace existing ministries but aims to network, train, and focus the body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission

The History of call2all • Table 71
Table 71 is a group of established ministry leaders who provide oversight and support to the call2all movement.
Table 71 first met at the Billy Graham sponsored Amsterdam 2000 World Conference For Evangelists, they are called Table 71 because they were sitting at …. table 71!
What was world changing was the commitment they made together – to do everything possible to make sure they were no unreached peoples left. To get to zero.
Since then Table 71 has met at least three times a year and has seen massive progress

In early August they were in Holland as part of the Amsterdam 2000 World Conference of Evangelists sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. A little over 10,000 evangelists were present, representing many nations of the world. Steve and Mark were part of a working group that had been selected from around the world. Six hundred had gathered around small tables to discuss one question, “What would it take to complete the Great Commission?” Day after day they dealt with how to solve the greatest challenges we face in missions.
On the third day of the gathering they looked at a list of 252 untargeted, unreached people groups. These were large ethnic groups that had never been engaged with the Gospel in all of church history. The leaders present were asked to “adopt” one or more groups. The first 140 groups were adopted quickly by various organizations represented in the room. But the second half of the list – the most difficult to reach – were not being adopted. The room had grown silent and no one was moving. This is when Dr. Douglass leaned over and asked Mark the question, “Why don’t our two organizations, Campus Crusade for Christ and YWAM, adopt the rest?” Mark tells us what happened next:
“With my mind spinning, thinking about what this might mean, I agreed. This is when a whole new adventure began and my life in missions would be forever changed. Shortly after Amsterdam, Steve and I began to meet with a select group of leaders who we would work together with in reaching the targeted people groups. We called ourselves “Table 71”, the table number we sat at on that important day in Amsterdam.
Another key piece began two years later when Dr. Bill Bright began the Global Pastors Network. He envisioned the pastors of the world coming together, working on finishing the Great Commission. Through a series of unexpected events I became the president of the Global Pastors Network in January 2007. As I assumed this new role it became clear that the vision of GPN needed to be expanded. We needed not only the religious leaders to work together in strategic unity; we had to call Christian leaders from all spheres of society to join in this major task. This gave birth to call2all in May 2007.
It was in early 2007 that I had a major encounter with the Lord. In a 6 hour time of personal shaking and sovereign illumination, God made the vision for call2all very clear. At one point in this encounter, the Lord spoke the following, ‘The time has come for the Son of God to be glorified’. This is out of John 17:1, the unity chapter. The assignment from heaven for the call2all Movement was clear: we were to help the global body of Christ come into strategic unity with heaven to reveal Jesus on the earth, leading to the completion of the Great Commission.”
Thus, the first call2all Congress was held in January, 2008, designed to strengthen the partnership among Christian leaders to finish the task Jesus gave us. The vision began catching fire among leaders all around the world. The call2all Movement together with its partners has brought together 28,000 leaders representing more than 1,400 organizations.
Spheres of Influence
How do we see a whole nation transformed?
Just as God created individuals and loves each one of us, wanting to redeem us from brokenness and sin, so God created nations (Acts 17: 26-27) and loves them, wanting to bring kingdom transformation into every dimension of their societal interactions.
Spheres of influence are a strategic framework for seeing nations discipled.
Since the call2all movement’s first Congress back in 2008, we have been privileged to bring together over 40,000 leaders in all the major regions of the world. The mandate is always the same, to meet around the table to strategize together, pray, worship and intercede together, and to commit together to see the Great Commission fulfilled.
Many have come in humility and openness, with a view to build God’s kingdom together.

Finish lines are a way we can strategically focus on what Jesus commanded us to do.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
Let us give ourselves fully to the task of “making disciples” of all “tribes, tongues, peoples, and nations”.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24: 14
Here are the 5 finish lines of the Great Commission:
Indeed, this was a historic event in Nairobi. The prayer for the whole world on the global map was such a great experience, an experience of a lifetime. I heard God in myspirit say “This is a new beginning, a new day”.
We will from Kenya, take the world for Jesus Christ. We practically stepped, prayed, touched, knelt, cried on the global map. I can see that we are rising up in Africa and shining for Jesus, even beyond our continental borders. It was great!
This was a momentum builder toward finishing the task together…the most precious element for me was listening to God together.
Can you imagine investing 2 years and you could give an unreached people group of 100,000 people the bible? What an incredible way to invest 2 years of your life.
I’m here in Toronto and I’m so excited about what God is doing in the missions and the prayer movements and how He’s bringing together enjoyable prayer and intercession and missions.
It is extraordinary to see the faith that is generated in a group when people get a picture of what God is saying to the whole body gathered in the room and not just to their own denomination or organization. Each one realizes they have a significant part to contribute to a movement that will bring genuine transformation.
I am so overwhelmed by what God is doing in our midst! The goals we have set are amazing, and I look forward to what God wants to do with us as a result of this Congress.
The highlight of the congress for me was the session on the map, I was reminded to focus on evangelization in a detailed way, as well as praying through every region of need. When I go back, I will tell my congregation that you are looking at a new pastor whose vision has been sharpened. We will ensure that we fulfill the call to reach the lost.
This is one of the highest quality gatherings I’ve ever been to in this region of the world. To see the stature of the people that are assembled is deeply encouraging.
It is a privilege for me to be part of the Call2All Congress, only when we come together can we complete what Jesus commanded.
The Lord is calling us to unity and this is the strategy of call2all: The body of Christ united through missions, and denominations cooperating together in achieving The Great Commission. It is exciting to be part of this moment; this is your time; our time. We will see each other at the next Congress!
