Outreach and Missions

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 that 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 missions by sending out three long-term missionaries. 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 sends more than 250 people annually on short-term trips and supports over 300 people serving in long-term missions. Today's missionaries 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?

Vision for Short-Term trips

Short-term (7 days to 6-week trips) provide opportunities for participants to engage with the local community, learn about ministry strategies from the long-term team there, and ultimately gain a larger perspective on God's heart for the entire world. There are international and domestic trips throughout the year for youth and college students, families, professionals, and adults.

Missionary Care

Grace views its supported missionaries 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.

Short-Term Trip Options

We have many short-term options for Youth all the way to Adults & families. We also offer 1-2 year commitment options. What will your part be in the Great Commission?
