Global Missions

Our call is to bring grace to both the church and the world because we know that grace is for both the believer and the unbeliever.

Annual Global Missions Fair - September 15 & 22

Each year the Global Missions Team hosts a fair and several other events to share the impact of Grace missionaries around the world. It is also the one time during the year that we raise funds for our Global Missions. This year we are excited to have a few of our missionaries with us in person: Yobani Alas (Honduras Fountain of Life), Anne Kieser (Serge), Scott Rayl (Wycliffe) and Chip Jones (Serge)!

On Sunday, September 15, join us for the Global Missions Fair in the gallery before or after services to learn about their work and ask questions. Missionaries Anne Kieser (Serge, Uganda) and Scott Rayl (Wycliffe, Africa) will share brief updates.

Saturday, September 21, HFoL Alumni dine out with Yobani at Elana’s Mexican restaurant in Arden (corner of 25 & Sweeten Creek Road) (Time, TBA)

On Sunday, September 22, Yobani Alas, Grace Missionary Pastor from Honduras, will be preaching and the Global Missions Team will host a “Taste of Global Cuisine” reception in the cafe after the 10:45AM service.

Please support Grace Global Missions as you are able and please pray for our missionaries and their work!

About Global Missions at Grace

Our call is to bring grace to both the church and the world because we know that grace is for both the believer and the unbeliever.

We believe that in Christ all national and cultural divisions can be overcome and will one day disappear. Since we believe we are one in Christ and that all are equally valuable before God, in our mission work we represent Christ and His kingdom, not America or evangelical western sub-culture. Christ's incarnation is our pattern - we leave our 'heaven' to enter another world. Though we may never leave our culture completely, we can value others and work for unity in Christ. We cannot compromise the core message of the gospel, but we are called to translate that into the new cultures God calls us into.

Relationships are central to our calling, to the way we work together with others in missions, and to those we seek to draw to faith. Relationships are a tangible way we express the love that comes from our faith. In mission work we are committed to loving others by working in teams, sharing ministry with other denominations and boards as an expression of our unity in Christ and building partnerships with indigenous leaders where we work as students, peers and servant leaders to strengthen local works.

Missions is done in many ways with many strategies. Often mission workers, national pastors, and boards tend to 'compete' for affection and money by claiming that their way is best, exclusive or is what God is currently doing. Grace is committed to a unified rather than a competitive approach. Grace supports short-term workers, missionaries, boards and national pastors/workers. We believe that mission work can best be done when each kind of effort cooperates with each other and ideally has some functional and supportive relationship.
