Every pastor or church minister dreams about a great, anointed, spiritual and organized ministry, of an influential team that will guarantee success of the ministry, because a great ministry is the will of the Heavenly Father.
The heart of God and Jesus Christ embrace the whole world, all nations, and all cultures. This is why He provided the very best strategy for reaching lost souls – the structure G-12 (Government of 12), a structure of fatherhood and discipleship. God chose the number 12 in substantive laws as well as spiritual. Through Jesus's successful ministry, the model «twelve» has proven its efficiency and effectiveness.
Looking at the ministry of pastor Cesar Castellanos, it becomes apparent that the vision G-12 was not only effective for Jesus and Israel, but also in Colombia, more than 2,000 years later. The result speaks for itself: as of today, pastor Cesar has 25 thousand cells. If every Christian would believe God and Jesus Christ in the presented approach towards fatherhood, discipleship and strategy G-12, then in a very short period of time (approx. 30yrs) the Good News of the gospel and sacrifice of Jesus would expand to the whole world.
For a period of several years, we saw how the vision G-12 brought restoration to thousands of lives across the world, raised priesthood families and stirred-up the church to its calling. Some people think that the vision is just another technique in reaching a goal; however, it's not just an outline of the ministry, since it transmits a burning desire of God to bring salvation to every person and to confirm the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
Those people, who accepted the vision, can apply it as a lifestyle. The passion to see millions of people receiving Jesus Christ into their heart drives them to take action.
Vision G-12 is founded on the great commission, given to us by Jesus. It is based on four basic biblical principles: Win, Consolidate, Disciple, and Send. These principles are directed towards evangelism- capture a person for Christ, confirm him in his decision to follow Jesus, teach him to spread the Good News and as the end result send them to win others for Jesus. The objective of the vision is for every member of the church became a leader, who will pass along the character of Christ and raise a team of 12.
In the last several years, the growth of Christian churches in Colombia and around the world was astonishing thanks to the vision. It is the most effective method to win and secure thousands of people. In addition, it provides stability in the ministry, allows every believer to be productive in winning souls, and contributes in the forming of a strong team.

Cesar Castellanos was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, where he is the head pastor in one of the biggest churches, consisting of 150,000 in Bogota and more than 50,000 in other countries. In addition to incorporating the G-12 vision (discipleship of 12 people) he is inspired by the cell system, which is also used by pastor (doctor) Yonggi Cho. In 1983, God spoke to him "Dream, because dreams are the language of My Spirit!" Later, in a vision, he saw many people, all around the world, who were committed to God.
He began his church with 8 people gathered in his living room. In just six months, it expanded to 600 members. In 1990, they began incorporating the cell structure, but didn't reach desirable results. Pastor, dreaming of multitudes, modeled Jesus Christ through initiating the discipleship of 12. In just a year, the church increased from 1,000 cell groups to 4,000. A few years later, they were obligated to meet in auditoriums and stadiums in order to fit the multitude of people in International Charismatic Mission (ICM).
Pastor Cesar wrote numerous books, annually selling more than a million copies. For many people, these books have strengthened their faith, deepened their relationship with God, and brought them closer to understanding God's purpose for their life. These books have convinced many that dreams can become reality.
Claudia Castellanos – is the senator of Colombia. Before 1997, she was simply a pastor's wife, but that year, God has called her to not only support her husband in ministry, but to work with him side-by-side. That same year, international net for women was originated. The very first meeting consisted of more than 14,000 women from Bogota. Today, this group consists of more than 80,000 members, including women from different regions of the world.
Her desire to see the nation transformed brought her into politics. Becoming the first Christian senator in the nation's history, she defends freedom of religion and also striving to approve bills regarding women, families and children. Throughout 14 years of her successful career in politics, Claudia Castellanos significantly influences governmental community agencies in particular regions, as well as the whole country. She also writes books that motivate every leader for personal development and to render influence in the position they were placed by God. Her conferences motivated women to become consistent support in the church ministry.
One of the key elements that brought growth to the church of pastors Cesar and Claudia, is their profound relationship with the Holy Spirit, as well as compassion towards perishing souls. Pastors, along with their family, are committed to spreading the vision and have a burning desire to see every member of their church developing through the G-12 vision. As a result of the G-12 vision, International Charismatic Mission (ICM) is the fastest growing church in the world: 2,000 people accept Jesus Christ weekly. Acquiring their own building for 12,000 occupants, ICM has 7 streaming services every weekend. The significant growth of their church gave them the opportunity to support, inspire and motivate leaders across the world.
