Missions

…and you shall  be  My witnesses  both  in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the  remotest  part of  the earth.

Acts 1:8

Grace Bible Church reaches out beyond our walls to impact the world with the Gospel through our many missionaries.  Currently, Grace is represented by 25 Missionaries who serve in ministries like church planting, seminary training, campus groups, languages specialists and international pastors.   Our church teaches a Pray – Give – Go strategy toward Missions.  We ask our entire church family to pray and support our Missionary Ambassadors and we put together short term trips to assist our regional and world partners in their ministries as needed. 

When you visit Grace, please stop by our Missions Room (west lobby) to visit many of our missionaries by video and get updates from them from around the world.  Just look for the flags!

Join the mission

Serve the Kingdom

The goals of Grace in Missions are to Pray – Give – Go, so we are asking everyone to engage in any of these ways that God gives opportunity.  All are encouraged to pray for our missionaries and updated prayer lists are available in the Missions Room.  Green envelopes are at every offering box and in the Missions Room for Missionary Support.  You may give to the monthly support or designate a specific Grace Missionary or Project on the envelope.  

Finally, Grace organizes and sends qualified people to serve with our Grace Partners both regionally and internationally.  Please talk to Pastor Andy about these scheduled trips.

Encourage Our Active Missionaries

Write and encouragement, question, or prayer and we'll connect you via email.

Making a Difference Coffee Shop

Stop by the Missions Room at Grace for specialty coffee before the morning services. Proceeds from Making a Difference Coffee Shop go directly to Making a Difference Program in Mogi das Cruzes, SP.

The Making Difference Project is a non-governmental, non-profit organization created in 2004, whose mission is to contribute to the creation of health conditions and the guidelines that provide the future resources for the development of its potential as individuals and citizens.

LIVES ARE TRULY TRANSFORMED!

Meet the Director: Julie Stitt Tarrataca (one of the missionaries supported by Grace) holds a degree in Theology from the Theological Faculty ABECAR, and was secretary of the CMDCA (Municipal Council for Children and Adolescents) in Mogi das Cruzes. Married to Leandro Tarrataca and mother of three children. On a trip to the USA in 2004 while Leandro Tarrataca traveled as a lecturer, Julie had the vision to implement the project. What at that time was just an idea, it quickly consolidated itself as an important tool of social, emotional and spiritual transformation achieved to a hundred children every year.
The project was linked to the Social Assistance Department of ABECAR, in the beautiful Serra do Itapeti, confirming the social vocation of the institution that has been contributing to the growth of the educational, social and cultural areas in Mogi das Cruzes, Brazil for 56 years. Julie's favorite thought is, "I do not know what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future."
