The hope of Local Missions is to share the love and truth of Jesus with people outside the walls of Grace Bible Church.

Grace helps people grow as disciples in three main ways: Equipping, Engaging, and Exalting. The primary purpose of local missions is to engage. We do this by volunteering in our neighborhood and nearby communities where our people are meeting tangible needs. Our hope is to love others in such a way that people ask, “Why?,” leading to the opportunity to share Jesus.

If you have any questions or wish to engage in any of these ministries, please contact T.S. Weaver, Engage Pastor/Missions and Men.
