Missions Committee
Chairman: Bob Horky

The mission of Grace Baptist Church in brief is to proclaim Christ to the world. A large part of our worldwide proclamation involves world and national missions efforts. Out of a love for our Lord and a desire to more effectively fulfill our role in the great commission, Pastor Hawkey and the deacons have established a Missions Committee.
