Church Growth International (CGI)
Church Growth International (CGI) was established in November, 1976 to help churches around the world grow by analyzing the growth of Yoido Full Gospel Church based on biblical principles. With Pastor Yonggi Cho, the founder of Yoido Full Gospel Church as the president and Pastor Younghoon Lee as the executive director, CGI is leading church growth in the world. CGI displays its ability as an international organization through the leadership of its 60 CGI board members composed of pastors from 25 different countries. Having been inspired by Yoido Full Gospel Church, they went back to their own countries and experienced growth in their churches.
The CGI Conference is an international church growth rally and is held in major cities globally every one to two years for pastors and believers from all around the world. The CGI Conference in Korea is held every 2 years at the same time as the Yoido Full Gospel Church Prayer Rally. The prayer rally, which is held in a sports stadium that accommodates 60,000 people, is the highlight of the CGI Conference.
CGI publishes a quarterly magazine in English called “Church Growth International,” to supplement their ministry in helping churches grow around the world. The magazine is shipped to 18,000 readers in 181 countries. The magazine contains the writings of the president Pastor Yonggi Cho, Pastor Younghoon Lee, CGI board members, world-famous pastors, and theologians. It delivers the dreams and visions of church growth to the whole world. The magazines can be accessed through their website.
