Missionary Overviews

Sovereign Grace takes the Great Commission seriously. We are committed to supporting missionaries both locally and globally. Currently we support 31 missionaries or missionary organizations in a variety of countries throughout the world as well as here in the United States. We have also had the privilege of sending five families to the mission field in the last decade. Missions teams will periodically go out from our church to support and encourage our missionaries.
