We are privileged to have Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California as our sending church. We have never seen a church that cares for its missionaries as well as Grace Church does.
Grace Ministries International (GMI) is merely an extension of Grace Church, created to manage the logistics for the 60-some families serving around the world. We love this model. Rather than being under the authority of both a church and a mission agency, we look to one group of people for counsel and accountability: the elders and pastors who have shepherded us for years.
More about GMI:
At its heart, GMI is absolutely committed to the inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency of Scripture. As such, GMI looks to God’s Word alone in determining their theology of missions. The following outlines the focus of their missionary efforts.
Leadership training takes place on the mission field primarily through international training centers. Established by a union of Grace Church missionaries and national church leaders, these schools are similar to a Bible institute or seminary.
Church strengthening brings a missionary alongside an existing church to support and strengthen its ministry in the community. (Our family’s ministry in Malawi primarily falls under this category.)
Church planting takes place where there is no national evangelical church.
Bible translation brings the Word of God to a people group that does not yet have the Bible in their own language.
