GPC IS TURNING 20!

Celebrate with us

Because of the work of God through Grace Point Church,
incredible things are happening around the world.

The Word of God
in every language

The "Little Horse" People live in the mountainous regions of remote Asia. Nearly all of the "Little Horse" people are Tibetan Buddhists, believing that the cycles of suffering and reincarnation end only when one reaches enlightenment. Apart from a handful of 3rd generation Catholics, none of the Little Horse people believe in Jesus. They have never before seen Scripture in their heart language.

Throughout the month of December, through our Christmas offering, our church gave over $50,000 to fund the ongoing translation work for the people in the "Little Horse" Valley. Because of your generosity, the book of Genesis has been translated into the heart language of the "Little Horse" People, and more is on the way.

Proposed ministry budget

When you give through Grace Point Church, your gift is going to life-changing
work in Northwest Arkansas and around the world.

A God-Sized Vision

Each spring, our pastoral team begins to pray and plan about where God is leading the ministries of Grace Point Church. In conjunction with our Trustees, the pastoral team works to strategically allocate resources for the coming year to help our church and our community Know God, Love People, and Live Sent.

This year, we believe God has some big things in store for Grace Point as he prepares us for the next season of ministry. We feel confident that our proposed budget for 2021-2022 supports that. Our proposed budget for 2021-2022 is $2,730,782, which represents a 7.1% increase over our previous budget and is full of opportunities to revitalize ministries and take on new initiatives in the community and in our world.

Here's how it breaks down: 
Grace Point Church is accredited by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA.org). ECFA members must annually engage an independent CPA to audit, review, or compile its financial statements and be willing to provide a copy of its latest financial statements to anyone upon written request.
