Grace Church believes deeply in the call to world evangelism. We support a variety of missionaries and special projects, both foreign and local. It is our vision to plant new local churches in our area as well as enable the establishment of local churches world-wide under national pastors. Our teens participate in local missions projects during the year and are also sent on mission's trips to gain first-hand missions experience.
Missionaries and Locations
Here is a list of our supported missionaries, their missions agency and location where they are serving. Please remember to pray for them throughout the week:
|Phil & Mimi Bjorklund
-WorldVenture, Cote d’Ivoire West Africa. Directors of Journey Corps West Africa. Journey Corps is a one or two year opportunity for young adults to live and serve in families, communities and churches in Cote d’Ivoire. Phil and Mimi’s mission statement is “Develop next generation leaders for church and mission”. By mentoring these young adults (aka Journeyers) whole communities are touch by the work of the Lord in their lives. The same happens to these Journeyers as their Ivoirean families and churches mentor them. The end result are young adults with a missional outlook on life and churches that benefit from the cultural exchange.
