“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

JESUS CHRIST, THE GREAT COMMISSION MATTHEW 28


At Grandview, we value serving others and caring for spiritual needs, just as Jesus did. Through partnerships with individuals and mission organizations, as well as direct ministry by Grandview teams and individuals, we are seeking to reach our world with Jesus’ love and good news.

You can help by praying for those reaching out on behalf of Grandview, becoming  a prayer supporter for a specific missionary, joining the Mission Support Team, and giving regularly to Grandview and to special projects. Read below for more information on our support missionaries.
