Missions

He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

JESUS CHRIST, ACTS 1:7-8


The ultimate goal of outreach is To Make Jesus Known. Jesus calls disciples to go and make disciples—to reach the ends of the earth for His glory. There is a very specific responsibility to global missions. There are many unreached nations around the world that need to hear about Jesus. Grandview Church is committed to helping indigenous churches and partner organizations plant local churches, train leaders and alleviate suffering. Our desire is to help equip, pray, serve, and give financially to what God is already doing in the countries in which our cross-cultural missionaries serve.

Ways to participate in global missions at Grandview:
• Adopt and pray for a global mission partner through your life group
• Participate in a short-term mission trip, organized by Grandview’s Outreach Team
• Apply for prayer and funding for a short-term missions trip with a mission agency
• Give financially to specific mission projects

Heidi Esau

P2C Students

I serve on a team entering the mission fields of Waterloo Region's colleges and universities. My role has me discipling students in leadership and evangelism, hosting outreach events, and providing community where students can discover and grow in devotion to God. Entering adulthood is a defining period of life and the academic world can be challenging to faithfully navigate, but I'm full of hope for a generation reaching out on the campus today and in the marketplace tomorrow.

Kirsten Fangrad

P2C Students

P2C helps students take their next step towards Jesus. I love watching students experience how Jesus is relevant to all of life! Within the Creative Communications department, I manage a team of designers, photographers, and marketers. We contribute to the mission by shaping culture, producing innovative resources, and designing experiences where life-change happens. We also help the church, donors, and prayer partners be a part of what God is doing in students’ lives.

Sarah Robinson

P2C Students

Through writing and editing, I help young adults across Canada connect their ordinary lives to the extraordinary work of Jesus, that they might walk closer to him. Sometimes this looks like producing original content for our blog, sometimes like mentoring student writers, or sometimes like editing the work of others until it glows with credibility and meaning. My team is especially exploring ways to spark digital engagement with the gospel, to reach students online.
