 We are blessed at Grace Community Church to be partnered with a such a diverse

 and gifted group of people, who are reaching the world for Christ. Our goal is to be

 united with them-- heart, mind, soul and body-- underpinning their ministries,

 attempting to "Hold the Ropes" of support.

 Due to the Sensitivity of some of our Missionaries ministering in Muslim     

 Countries,  we cannot list their Bio's on the Web for their safety. We do support 

 five other Missionaries across the Globe in connection with those we have listed.
