Did you know that 10% of all the tithes we receive goes right back out to outreach and missions?

We do outreach because we believe God desires for all people of all nations to know Jesus. It is our ambition to share the story of Jesus throughout the Kansas City area, the United States and among unreached people groups (Romans 15:20). Unreached People Groups (UPGs) are groups of people where the evangelical population is less than 2%. We want to provide you with opportunities to serve globally among these unreached people groups using the skills, gifts, and desires that God has given you by planning short term mission trips to be catalysts for our global partners. We also deeply believe in providing hope through the gospel of Jesus to the people in the Kansas City area. We serve locally with 8 partners and provide monthly outreach events for you to get involved with. Scroll down to learn more about our mission trips and global and local partnerships.

The Kurdish


The Kurdish

There are an estimated 30 million Kurds worldwide, and less than 1% of them are followers of Jesus. Since 2009, some projects that Grace has been involved with in Iraq and here in the USA include church planting, village outreach, a hair salon/professional exchange, a bee-keeping farm, and soybean plant, a widow housing project, and others. We believe that by investing into the lives of Kurds we can help the Kurdish people reach their own people with the Gospel.
