The Missions Committee at Grace Church exists for the purpose of supporting the work of missions in fulfillment of the Great Commission given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:15-18) to the Glory of the Triune God.
Mission support is to help meet the needs of Missionaries (local or foreign) and Missions Agencies involved in evangelism, discipleship, mercy, education and church planting.
The Committee also seeks to raise awareness about missions within the local church body at Grace church.
This year, thanks be to God, the missions committee budget is $97,029. These funds will be used to support 30 missionaries and ministries locally and in 17 different countries in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Favorite Missions Verse: Matthew 9:36-38
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few, therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
