The glory of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ, manifested in the church around the world
Grace Bible Church is committed to missions. Missions exist to make the glory of God known through the preaching of the gospel and the formation of churches all around the world. These missions priorities are reflected in the people we send and the tasks we send them to do. To better understand our commitment to and understanding of missions please listen to our missions sermon series.
Papua New Guinea
Grace Bible Church has committed ourselves to the families from our church who have traveled to the remote Finisterre Mountains, as well as the town of Madang, of Papua New Guinea: the Canns, and the Lehmans. Sent in 2014, these families are a precious part of the GBC body to whom we are completely committed to support. Joining the team in 2018 were the Mitchells. And in 2023 the Twomblys joined, sent from Community Bible Church in Stuart, FL. We also support and some of our pastors take an active role in leadership of FinisTerre, the missions agency supporting our families serving in Papua New Guinea. To find out more and support our team, visit FinisTerre.
In addition, we support Massimo Mollica and his family as they conduct their missionary work in Italy. To find out more and support Massimo & Susanna, visit https://www.gracechurch.org/mollica.
Weymann Lee, who has served for years as a pastor, has committed himself to the training of pastors around the world. Weymann is a valuable part of our church, and we wholly support him and his missions. To find out more and support Weymann & Helen, visit With Wings Like Eagles.
