Global Missionary Partnerships
Currently, we support as many as 250 Missionaries around the world and in our nation. Consistent and ongoing monthly support is vital for each missionary to effectively serve in their respective areas. Five percent of our General Fund income is designated toward monthly support of these global ministry partners.
World Serve International
The mission of World Serve is to provide clean water, sanitation, education, and economic opportunities to alleviate suffering in Africa. World Serve sees over 100,000 people experience life change yearly through their large-scale, sustainable, solar-powered water projects. There are 319 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa living without access to clean water, and even more people living without sanitation. We will provide clean water access to an entire village in East Africa. Read more about clean water projects that result in lives being changed at www.worldserveintl.org
People Helping People Network

You can learn more about PHP at www.phpnetwork.org
Kings Castle Ministries in El Salvador
Founded in 1989, King's Castle Ministries purposed to raise an army of young, Spirit-filled warriors who would invade Latin America with the simple message that Jesus saves and is coming soon. Today that vision has expanded to dozens of countries throughout the world. A group of young adults from Grace will be traveling to El Salvador this summer to provide evangelism and ministry to the people in this country. More details can be found at www.kingscastle.org.
Southeast Asia (Christmas Offering)
In our Christmas offering this year we are once again partnering with The Stone Table. We will be investing in a portfolio of strategic projects in Southeast Asia. The projects will include church planting and training, college ministries, compassion initiatives and feeding programs, Business as Missions, and an emphasis on Buddhist and Hindu people groups. One strategic project will take the Gospel to a province of Mongolia where it has NEVER been!
Project Rescue exists to rescue and restore victims of sexual slavery through the love and power of God. PR opened a home in Spain in 2014 where women and children were routinely trafficked—the first of its kind in this European country. PR has been renting this facility for the last eight years. However, the owner unexpectedly informed them that they must purchase the building by Spring 2023. Your giving will help purchase this building.
Convoy of Hope
At any given time, natural disasters occur in our nation and worldwide. Convoy of Hope is our partner on the ground that provides food, shelter, and emergency items to those in need. COH always partners with local churches in these efforts to build bridges to the local churches. COH provides feeding programs for children, women’s empowerment initiatives, rural compassion projects, as well as community-wide outreach events. More details can be found at www.convoyofhope.org
MTD provides missions-based trips for current and former Pro Football Players/Coaches, College Players/Coaches, and HS Players/Coaches.
