Local and Global Opportunities at Grace Point Church

OUR MISSION

We are called to live on mission through our daily routines, relationships, and work, but our mission doesn't have borders. Grace Point commissions volunteers for short-term Global Adventures to show and share Jesus to everyday people in everyday conversations, as well as with the unreached, the under-reached, and the under-resourced people of the world. Please pray about your involvement in God's mission to the nations, that the whole world may know of His glory!
