Missions

Make an Impact

Missions is being intentional with how you live, what you communicate and Who you obey while letting others watch. It involves going, praying, and sending  so everyone has a part to play in the story God is telling and all are invited to use their lives to demonstrate God’s plan for the world. On mission we are reminded of the bigness of what God is doing and that we are never alone.

Our missions include local, national and international opportunities to share the Gospel.

Local

When Jesus commanded His disciples to share the Gospel, He instructed that it be local, regional, and to the world (Acts 1:8). Grand Parkway does not want to trip over its neighbors while getting to the world so our first missional focus is local.

ESL - English as a Second Language

On Tuesdays 6pm - 8:30 pm, August - May, we teach basic English through Level 6 to a delightful and courageous group of adults. Testing and Registration for 2024-25 will be July 16th and July 23rd from 5-8 PM in the Warehouse at GPBC. Volunteers are needed in the following roles: Teacher, Assistant Teacher, Conversation Partner, Hospitality.

On Sundays at 10:30am, ESL instructors and students read and study the Bible together to strengthen English and friendship.

Fort Bend ISD Schools

We are engaged in blessing the schools right across the street from our church. These schools are filled with students whose families live in the neighborhoods surrounding our church. Volunteers are needed for various events at the schools throughout the year. We also like to show up as school volunteers doing office work, library help, and tutoring among other things.

Global Gates - Afghan Refugees

Thousands of Afghan refugees live in Houston seeking a safe place, employment opportunities, and freedom. God has brought the nation of Afghanistan here. We welcome Afghan refugee women into their community by establishing a sense of belonging and by partnering with them to restore honor, affirm dignity, and transform their lives and those of their family. We also seek to meet practical needs. We help through hospitality, assisting with acclimation to our area, English tutoring, and delivering practical items like groceries and clothing.

 

Here To There Movement

Here to There Movement coaches, leads, launches and networks teams of missionaries working with unreached people groups in local U.S. cities ("Here") in order to help facilitate the multiplication of disciples among every unreached people group worldwide ("There").

 

Fellowship Church Network

Jim Morisey is a missionary through Fellowship Church Network connecting with unreached people groups right here in the Richmond/Sugar Land area as well as overseas in Pakistan. He utilizes prayer, trainings, mentoring, and various outreaches to find people who have been given a desire to know the Lord, discipling them once they come to faith or helping interested people to move in the direction of faith in Jesus.

Nery’s Promise

Nery’s Promise introduces our communities' children and families to God. Through their faith-based programs they train and equip children and young adults who live in generational poverty to succeed, placing God at the center of their lives.

The first Tuesday of every month, we volunteer to serve at their weekly Bible study. 50-70 children show up to read the Bible and learn about the love of Jesus. You do not need special skills for this opportunity. Show up, love on children and help lead a simple Bible study. If you have teens or older elementary kids, this is a great opportunity for your family to serve together and to model the call to take the Gospel to our neighbors.

ESL - English as a Second Language

On Tuesdays 6pm - 8pm, September - May, we teach basic English thru level 5. There are ESL Assistants who help navigae the students through a  formal teaching cirriculum and informal conversational learning.

On Sundays at 10:30am, ESL instructors and students read and study the Bible together.

FB ISD Schools

We are engaged with Mission West Elementary, Oyster Creek Elementary, and Austin High School.

NATIONAL

Park Slope Community Church - Brooklyn, NY

Park Slope Community Church is focused on reaching the community of Brooklyn, New York. We partner with the church-plant team whose calling is to live missionally in the city and spread the Gospel to this community.

Park Slope seeks to proclaim the Gospel and show mercy to those in need—making disciples and loving their neighbors.

Global

When Jesus commanded His disciples to share the Gospel, He instructed that it be local, regional, and to the world (Acts 1:8). Global can be an overwhelming target but Grand Parkway partners with those focused on their own part of the world.

Costa Rica

For over a decade, we supported a work to reach the Guyami people of Costa Rica. We continue to support that work through annual indigenous pastor equipping and construction trips.

Cuba

Our hope is to assist indigenous Churches in Cuba to plant Great Commission Churches in underserved regions by providing training, support, encouragement, and accountability.

France

We partner with Stephen and Sabrina Marshall and their ministry of church planting in Lyon, France. The Marshalls’ ministry has already planted 4 churches in the Lyon area and has a goal of seeing 100 new churches in Lyon (1 church per 10,000 people).

They desire to see these church plants come out of their current churches and to see the people of Lyon become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Romania

Since 2011, Grand Parkway has partnered with Ovidiu and Adina Petric, who run a local outreach center to bring the Good News of Jesus to the villages in Romania.

We have partnered with Derek Schuessler and his work with For All Mankind Movement (FAMM), an organization that reaches the unreached and equips the locals to be missionaries to their own people.
