GRACE CHURCH RESIDENT MISSIONARY
During the 20 years of Carey and Lisa’s pastoral ministry, they carried a burden for missions and missionaries. The Lord has now allowed them to fulfill that burden by being a part of international ministry.
Carey serves as a resident missionary here at Grace Church. In this capacity he travels to various countries where he preaches and teaches in local churches, speaks at pastor’s conferences, holds city-wide evangelistic meetings, and works in humanitarian outreach. Lisa is his faithful prayer warrior. In the last 8 years he has been to England, Estonia, Haiti, South Africa, Ghana, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
John & Deb Rusk, Frontline Missions
Missionary John Rusk had missions on his heart when he helped start Grace Church. After pastoring Grace, John Rusk returned to the mission field as a missionary to Africa. John is a missions mentor to Pastor Jay and consults Grace Church in our missions endeavors.
John and his ministry team are partnering together with the prophetic vision of the LORD for rebuilding Foursquare South Africa. In order to achieve this they are depending on strategic prayer for the nation, to strengthen existing works, to further develop reproducing leaders and focus on planting reproducing churches in five-key urban centers of South Africa.

Through Project Nourish, Foursquare Disaster Relief has touched countless lives, feeding more than 5,400 people regularly. Every week, people have been giving their lives to Christ since Foursquare churches in northern Uganda started assisting the refugees. There’s much to celebrate, but still much to be done to save lives.
Reach Russia, Steve & Kim Cecil
Steve and Kim Cecil are Foursquare missionaries to the nation of Russia, the largest country in the world. Currently less than 2% of the population has a relationship with Jesus as we know it. Their greatest desire is to see Russia flooded with the saving knowledge of Christ and a personal revelation of His love and grace. Currently there are 8 Foursquare churches. Foursquare Russia is urgently praying and planning for more churches to be planted in the next five years. The Cecil’s are a part of a church planting team in St. Petersburg Russia.

Renewed Renovado, Jane Christiansen
Jane Christiansen who has served in World Missions for approximately 15 years, founded and now serves as executive director for Renewed Renovado. Reaching the hurting and oppressed has always been Jane’s focus. In the fall of 2003 she felt compelled to pioneer an international program for exploited and trafficked girls. That was the beginning of God 4 Girls, now knows as Renewed Renovado.
What has been accomplished in those intervening years can only be seen as the amazing hand of God, as the work has expanded to reach hundreds of girls and now also boys who have been delivered from slavery and deprivation into the great hope and future found only in Christ. With a team of Christian psychologists and educators and a system of safe houses, these once exploited and trafficked youngsters have found life and hope far beyond the darkness that once held them. But there is still so much more to do.
