We believe God’s love has no bounds to country or region. Grace Church is passionate about sharing His love and meeting people’s needs in communities across the globe. Here are some of the international projects we are excited to partner with.
Montevideo, Uruguay – Church plant
Members of this church family, started by Esteban and Emily Alvarez, have been intentional about being a resource to their community. They’ve helped in restorative work at local schools, and hosting public sports camps and parenting classes. This church is looking to launch a second location to meet the needs of those attending!
San Lucas, Guatemala – Church plant & feeding center
Church planters PJ and Morgan Hernandez hope that in serving their community, covering medical expenses and repairing homes for locals, that the people will want to know God. Grace Church helps to support their feeding center in that provides food for 140 kids a day. For most of the kids, it is the only nutritional meal they will eat all day.
Copenhagen, Denmark – Church plant
Tomas and Christina Christensen planted Open Church this past September in a newer district of Copenhagen in Denmark, where less than 1% of the population attend a Bible centered church. Open Church has led the way in “drive-in” church during the COVID-19 pandemic for their area, with services broadcast all over Europe!
Hatgal, Mongolia – Church plant
Chris and Stephanie Ballinger are passionate about training Mongolian leaders to plant churches in the four villages surrounding their town of Hatgal. Currently, nearly 14,000 people in the area are without a home church.
Vipingo, Kenya – Church plant & feeding center
Our church planter in Vipingo, Kenya is working to connect with the unreached people groups of the South Coast of Kenya, which are predominately Muslim. In partnering with this project through MANNA Worldwide, we’ll be helping to expand their church building to keep up with it’s growth, which also stands as both a school and feeding center for over 1,000 children on a daily basis!
Christchurch, New Zealand – Church plant
Ben and Raelene Walker work hard to create connections in Christchurch, New Zealand. An area where connections are lacking, and only 1,500 residents out of 400,000 residents, attend a church service regularly. They recently launched regular weekend meetings as Story Church, which now meets solely online.
Havana, Cuba – Church plant
Ramiro Sesma and Judith fell in love, got married, bought a home and started Iglesia Bautista de Reparto Rosario, Havana. They began meeting in their backyard after the church outgrew their living room, and continues to grow.
Last year, we helped with the start of a new building next to the church, which became a feeding center for the community and a Sunday school for the church. This year, we’ll be helping them finish the second floor of the newly constructed building!
