Grace partners with missionaries all across the globe sharing the good news of Jesus, and we have multiple short-term trips each year to various countries.
Grace helps people grow as disciples in five ways: worship, fellowship, learning, serving, and sharing. The purpose of International Outreach is to share. We are committed to saying yes when God tells us to "go".
At Grace we are committed to taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world in three key ways:
- We send our own.
We support dozens of missionaries, the majority of whom have been sent from Grace. Our long-term missionaries are our kids, our grandkids, our friends, our family, serving all over the globe. Every year we send short-term missionaries and teams from Grace to care for the poor and needy, evangelize, train pastors, and give support for long-term missionaries. If you would like to go on one of our short-term mission trips, email us at email@example.com for more information about our upcoming trips.
- We partner with game-changers.
At Grace we look for missionaries and organizations who make a disproportionate impact in their field for the sake of the Gospel, and get behind them. With each of our ministry partners, we provide financial support and yearly teams to help them do more of what they do.
Young Life in Europe | For the past decade we have partnered with Young Life Bulgaria to help launch new Young Life programs in cities like Tran, Sofia, and Plovdiv. Every year we send a team from Grace to help Young Life build an existing program, reach a new city, or run a Young Life camp. As a result of our partnership, thousands of teenagers have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and hundreds of students have received Christ as their Savior.
Young Life in Asia | Starting in 2019 we are partnering with Young Life at college campuses centered around a major Asian city. We will be sending a team annually to be part of their English camp on campus. Our team will teach classes, build relationships with college students, and connect those students with long-term Young Life national staff. If you would like more information about our mission trips with Young Life Europe or with Young Life in Asia, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We invest (y)our money wisely.
We believe that good financial stewardship means making wise investments. We don’t simply throw money at missions and call it good. Our Missions Team prayerfully works to vet potential new missionaries, to provide care and accountability for current missionaries, and to give leadership to the overall direction and strategy of our missions program at Grace, all in order to get the best possible return in God’s economy. When you give to Grace, 10% of your gift goes to supporting our long-term missionaries in the field. Beyond that 10%, each year we raise an additional $60-$70k during our Missions Conference that we use to fund our partnerships, send short-term teams, and provide emergency support for our long-term missionaries. We’re a generous church and we believe deeply in missions. And we take the stewardship of the financial gifts God provides through your generosity seriously.
We partner with a variety of people and organizations around the globe. Our current missionaries are listed below. Unfortunately we cannot list those that are serving in secured areas. If you have a question that needs immediate attention, please contact Lucas Rogers.

Meet Grace’s First Missionaries
From its beginning, Grace placed an emphasis on support of foreign missions. As efforts to begin the new church progressed, Bradford Lapsley, called “Tex”, and his wife Betty were raising support to go to Ethiopia under the Sudan Interior Mission (SIM). In June 1954, Grace Bible had approved Brad and Betty as its first missionaries at a support level of $25 per month.
