Serve The World
God's grace is changing lives here, and around the world. Because of that, we're compelled to engage with the global church. As we come alongside individuals and organizations that are working hard to love their neighbors and make Jesus known on an international scale, we know there's tremendous potential for our own hearts and worldviews to be challenged and transformed. Take a step with us and explore how God might challenge and use you to make a difference, globally.

Why Should I Go?
Sponsor a Child
For as little as one dinner out a month, you can help lift a child out of poverty in Jesus' name. Grace has had a long-time partnership with Compassion International and is thrilled to partner with their work. Eric got to visit their children centers in Rwanda in January 2016 and see their work firsthand. Each year, we host Compassion Sunday but you don't have to wait for our next Compassion Sunday to start sponsoring a child. You can also download Compassion International's Compassion Explorer magazine for children. It's loaded with stories of children from other countries, games, activities and recipes of international food.
When you sign up to receive our bimonthly missions newsletters, you'll receive the latest encouraging reports from our Serve & Learn team members and supported missionaries. You'll hear about upcoming missions events and meetings, and any opportunities to serve locally.
