Global Partners

Dominican Republic

Grace partners with Iglesia del Dios Pentacostal in the neighborhood of Cancino Adentro, just outside of Santo Domingo.

We help support and encourage the work of Pastor Silverio and the director of a school for elementary age children named Perla. Perla and Silverio work hand in hand to help provide not only material needs but the spiritual needs of a community, reaching out to their neighbors and providing hope and help where it is needed.

Through the school, children are able to receive water, nutritious meals, education, and an opportunity to receive Jesus. The church is also hoping to provide access to a free medical clinic and vocational training at its newly built second story.

Grace also partners with Casa Misionera led by Pablo “Nelson” Paulino. Casa Misionera provides a Christian Leadership Program for select young adults in the Dominican Republic. Working with local pastors and educators, they identify students who have the potential to become great Christian leaders. Students receive training and mentorship during a 4-year program, that runs parallel with their university schedule, with the goal of sending out effective leaders by graduation day.

Haiti

Our longest serving Global Partner is Grace en Sion, a church located in the city of Cap Hatien. The people of Haiti deal with overwhelming poverty, lack of infrastructure, and spiritual warfare, but our partner church is incredibly strong in their faith.

Led by Pastors Migueloson Alcius and James Israel, Grace en Sion is a vibrant community of faith that is helping it’s community find hope and joy.

Grace en Sion also hosts a school, giving education in French to more than 300 Haitian children, many of whom Grace sponsors. We also currently assist Pastors Migueloson and James in hosting the Global Leadership Summit for Cap Haitien, the only such gathering in northern Haiti.

In addition to the church and school, in 2021 James started J&I Ferme Agricole (Justice & Integrity Agricultural Farm) whose mission is to feed those in need while fighting inflation, equipping and empowering other farmers to make hard labor lighter and to provide a Biblical worldview to strengthen farmers in their calling.

Japan

Grace partners with the Lusky family in Japan. Japan provides unparalleled access, potential for impact, and challenge when it comes to the great commission, meaning that it’s open and welcoming for travel by Christians and yet at the same time spiritually closed to the gospel.

Grace believes that we are called as Christians to press into places in the world that are difficult, and where the spiritual need is greatest. In Japan, less than 1% of the population is Christian, but there is a small group of believers in many cities that are trying to reach their communities for Christ. As the Initiative Leader to Japan for the organization Converge, Brian Lusky’s role is to raise up and coach a team of missionaries, while casting vision for a multi-pronged strategy aimed at igniting a Gospel movement–a spark of growth in people coming to Christ. Ultimately, we want to see the number of Japanese Christians increase to above 3%, and be a part of Japan coming off of the unreached people list.
