GRACE MISSIONS PLEDGING
Grace Missions is committed to raise Spirit-filled Gracians who love God, love people, and make disciples of Jesus Christ within and beyond the church walls.
Our missions thrusts are encapsulated in the 3Ps below.
Ever since 1981, Grace Missions has supported the planting of more than 2220 churches. Currently Grace Missions has church planting projects in 10 countries around Asia. Each country is helmed by a country director who supervises the church planting works and charts the ministry direction for the particular country.
Training and development are also part of the strategy to grow our church planting works. Pastors and leaders from the churches supported by Grace Missions will gather periodically to be equipped by our trainers and each other. The training Grace Missions offers ranges from theological subjects to practical ministry skills. These go towards empowering the pastors and leaders of the region in growing and expanding the reach of their churches.
As the missions arm of Grace Assembly, Grace Missions also seeks to educate, create awareness and inspire the church for world missions through various platforms such as Missions Convention, videos, J333, etc. Missions trips are also specifically designed to be an essential avenue to propel people to the nations.
Globalisation has caused an increase in economic migrants who leave their countries to seek better job opportunities. In Singapore, we are blessed with a stable government and strong economy, attracting people of all professions and backgrounds to look for a living here. Grace Missions has taken on the vision to share the love of Christ with migrant workers here in Singapore.
Serve in Missions right here in Singapore!

Missions trips are encouraged in order to promote greater awareness of the needs in the missions field. Short-term missions trips are often a prelude to future longer term commitment to missions in providing support for our church planters and their ministry. It is proven that members who return from missions trips develop a heart for the lost and unreached, and become more aware of the greater needs beyond the world we live in.
The duration for our missions trips are usually anything from 1-3 days to 5-14 days. There are generally three reasons why people would go on a STMT.
Experience the culture of another people. This would mean observing the dressing of the people, eating their food, adapting to their ways of greeting. Bottom line, it means to understand their worldviews and attempt to understand and learn about a different culture as much as possible. As trippers learn to respect the customs and sing the local Christian songs, this would expose trippers to a world outside their own so as to widen their perspective of life, God and the world.
Explore the work of the missionary and the local pastors. As trippers listen to their goals and passion for the people, this would usually result in an understanding as to why they do what they do. Hopefully, trippers would catch the vision and passion for being a part of God’s global redemptive plans, and in turn do the same in Singapore and around the world, wherever their influence brings them.
Extend the work of the Kingdom. When trippers go for the various missions trips, they go as representatives of Christ and the Church. Trippers would seek to be a blessing to the locals by preaching, teaching English, many would find themselves sharing testimonies of God’s goodness and some would even find themselves being involved with community projects depending on the nature of the trips. We want to lift the name of Christ is in the different countries and communities we are visiting.
