From cover to cover, the Bible clearly proclaims God’s heart for the nations. He declares that every knee shall bow (Romans 14:11) and He desires for His people to make His name known to the ends of the earth (Psalm 67). In 1963, Grace Bible Church began its commitment to the nations by sending out three families to share the Good News. For over 50 years, investing in making the name of Jesus known to the ends of the earth has been a pillar of Grace, one that is committed to helping people find and follow Jesus for a lifetime. At present, Grace supports over 300 people serving long-term among the nations, and sent more than 120 people on short term trips this year. These sent ones are day-to-day disciples who participate in his Great Commission and work toward the goal of making disciples of all nations. There are various ways we are all called to participate: go, send, pray, welcome, and mobilize. What part will you play?

Thousands of students from all over the world move to College Station each year. We want to love our neighbors as ourselves, just as Jesus has commanded us. The Big Giveaway is an opportunity to share Christ-like love through generous hospitality and genuine welcome. Our hope is that the Big Giveaway is a catalyst for us to know our neighbors so that the nations may know Jesus. Below you can find instructions for both international students and volunteers.

There are international and domestic trips throughout the year for youth and college students, families, professionals, and adults.
Grace views its GOers as employees and commits to caring for them from recruitment to retirement. Care opportunities include support through finances and prayer, an ongoing personal connection with a Grace ministry, Sunday morning group, or home group, and, as able, visits from Grace staff, elders, and congregants.
