What we aim to solve

Many churches around the world have a weak understanding of the gospel and an even weaker ability to articulate it. Churches often devolve into little more that social clubs. Our God is in the redemption business. He makes things new to reflect and worship Him correctly. We want to help churches realize the power of God to this end.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Effects of Grace Ministries aims to accomplish clear biblical teaching and encouragement for churches around the world. We seek to strengthen the faith of churches by helping them to understand God's Sovereignty and plan for His glory as revealed in His Word and realized in Jesus Christ.We seek to establish and strengthen churches with a clear understanding of the gospel and an appreciation for God's Word as sole rule and authority in their lives. By strengthening churches, we hope to see a true gospel being shared with a lost world, so they may believe on Jesus as the Christ and by believing on Him, they will have life through His name.

Effects of Grace will conduct pastor-training conference, breakout workshops and one-on-one discipleship with church members and leaders.

Effects of Grace has already conducted a number of training workshops and classes with foreign pastors. We have seminary-trained teachers and instructors who are actively serving in the ministry of our Lord. We have contacts and resources that place us in opportunities to provide this teaching and encouragement.

Effects of Grace will know if we are making progress toward our goals by seeing pastors and churches staying faithful to the teaching of God's Word, loving one another well and reaching out to their communities with the gospel of Jesus.

We have conducted a number of conferences in the Philippines and Zimbabwe. We plan to continue to build upon that momentum. The relationships we have built have opened doors to visiting more churches on more islands in the Philippines. This results in new needs and opportunities being revealed. We are basically making disciples of Jesus Christ. This task will not end, until our Lord returns. Effects of Grace Ministries has also started an Effects of Grace Network and hired full-time pastor/missionary for the Philippines. This will enable us to minister, even when we are not in-country.
