Global & Local Outreach Ministry

Kenneth Bolding once wrote, “No people, society, or organization can long exist without a compelling image of the better future that calls us forward into tomorrow.” Gracespring’s outreach and missions are all about our calling into the future. It’s our investment in all peoples’ eternal future!

Missionaries: This is the Family of God intentionally crossing cultural barriers to bring people from every nation to worship and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.

Outreach Partners: These are ministries, programs, or non-profits outside gracespring facilities in our community and region that focus on helping the under-resourced and those in need.

gsYouth Summer Outreach Trips

ALL-IN WEEK | MARCH 15 – 20, 2020

High School Students
All-In Week is a movement. It’s an opportunity for high school students to get out of the daily grind of school, actively share their faith with their classmates, and shift their perspective from just being a student at their school to being a missionary for the Gospel.   High school students can participate by staying in a host home to intentionally get out of routine to truly start each day on mission, or by signing up to come to each of the services from 6:30-8:30 Sunday-Friday.
