On June 25, 2007 the executive presbytery of the PGCAG approved (EP 21-07) a new district called the Global District Council (GDC). This district will provide an opportunity for Filipino churches outside the Philippines to be formally linked with PGCAG. At present Filipino A/G churches from eight countries have signified their interest to be part of GDC. An organizing convention is being planned to gather the constituents of this new district.
