The Grove takes the Great Commission seriously, and believes that God has given us the opportunity to “Go” to reach and serve the world for His purpose. Our passion is to make disciples of Jesus Christ around the world. To see lost people, follow Jesus and found people grow. To accomplish this task, we have more than 15 missionary international partners and non-profit organizations that we work with. The other part of strategic partnership is the role we play as Christians Followers of Christ at The Grove can live on mission through a simple Go path - pray, give and go.
At The Grove, we believe that the first step into mission, is to pray. One of the most practical ways to step into Mission either globally or locally is to begin praying for God’s work and will to be done. Pray for our missionary partners and pray for how God could use your life, are great places to start.
Everything we have belongs to God. Giving is a great way to not only engage in missions globally or locally, but a way for us to be aware of how our specific resources are helping fulfill the Great Commission. Our church has dedicated 10% of its budget for missions and your giving goes to support our ongoing local and global efforts. Your above and beyond giving goes to support short-term trips and special projects that will help us finish the task of reaching the world both at home and abroad.
This isn’t a kind suggestion it is a command in God’s Word, it is assumed for all Christians. We want disciples at The Grove to go into their neighborhoods, their communities and the world. We provide opportunities both locally and globally to be able to go and have church wide opportunities to go together. If you are interested in either local or global missions look at the annual opportunities provided below or contact our missions team through Pastor Scott.
We believe that service is a lifestyle and we want serving to be an integral part of our lives. By serving our neighbors in the greater Twin Cities area we have learned that the most valuable thing we can bring to a person is the time that we spend with them. We just need to show up where God is already at work and be ready to offer the greatest gift of all, the love and truth of Christ, offered through us.
