Making a Global Impact
Grace Anglican exists to join Jesus in the Great Commission to take the Gospel to the nations. We partner with individuals and organizations for the advancement of the Kingdom through church planting and relief efforts. If you have an interest in being part of the global missions team or would like more information on the ministries below, please contact our Associate Pastor, The Rev. Dan Wolf.
Global Missions Team
The Missions Team meets every other month to lead Grace Anglican's vision to partner with individuals and organizations for the advancement of the Kingdom of God globally. This team fosters strategic initiatives, congregational mobilization and education, and financial administration. We are always looking for leaders who want to join this dynamic team. If you are interested, please contact The Rev. Dan Wolf, Associate Pastor.
This is an opportunity to do hands-on support work for global missionaries. These teams "adopt a missionary" by committing to pray for their missionary regularly, communicating to them via Skype or letters, sending care packages, and helping support them when they return home for visits. If you are interested in more information about joining a PAC team, please contact The Rev. Dan Wolf, Associate Pastor.

Making Your Work More Meaningful
You spend the majority of your time at work. You’re good at it, but you wonder – what does my job have to do with God's work in the world? Lifework is a non-profit global Leadership Development program that is designed to transform leaders who will then transform their city. Jesus is the best example of Godly leadership, so they take what they learn from his leadership example, and learn how to apply it in their workplace, communities, churches, and most importantly in their families. Lifework is seeking to help leaders find their calling and connect with like-minded professionals who want to grow more intentional in their work while moving their business to the next level. This year's class starts in October. Contact Brent Ross for more information.
