Mobilizing Churches for Missions

I wanted to share a bit of the story of a church I love and get to work with directly in my California ministry scope. You can see a compelling video of how we are working to help churches by clicking on the picture below...


Church feature: Auburn Grace Community Church in Auburn, California
Watch how one church dedicated themselves not only to be a sending church but an equipping church. Together with Encompass, Auburn Grace Church educated their missions committee to be a proactive team that supports missionaries and shares God’s love for the nations with their church body.

As you learn about Auburn Grace’s approach, ask yourself: How can my church better engage with our global movement? Learn more about The Path Series’ “Mobilizing the Mobilizers” at

Circles of Grace  

Our church plant had a neat morning this past Sunday!  We finished the book of Acts and so we took last week to think and pray about what the Lord has put our hearts about our church family... what we are doing well and where we could grow.

We were trying to sense what the Lord has for our next chapter.  There was some really great feedback and we sense that the Lord has us in a good spot and we love eating together! 

We've been meeting in the public park regularly on Sundays centered around Jesus and His Word. And the Lord is pushing us out and deeper in this next chapter!

Keep praying for us to sow the Gospel, make disciples and enlarge our circles! Circles Of GraceWe also need financial supporters for our effort and you can see how to contribute online at (where you can also track with what we are doing together!)

Thanks for your support! 

I want to thank you for your prayers, they make all the difference!
