Everyday we face an abundance of choices regarding how we will spend our time, money, and energy. These decisions can create momentum for discipleship or can cause us to drift away from our calling. That makes it imperative that we make wise decisions as individuals and also as a church.

WE CHOOSE is our two-year ministry plan. It is a strategic way to budget, allocate, discuss, raise, and spend resources in a manner that will help us accomplish the mission God has given us. It is not a capital campaign. It is a plan celebrating that every dollar given supports a broad range of ministries. It involves elders and staff setting priorities and asking God for wisdom.

WE CHOOSE sustains the ministry we have already been entrusted with, as well as looks ahead to the opportunities God has put in our path. Ultimately, We Choose involves you and the choices you make to partner with God, through the local church, to change lives and advance His kingdom here at home and around the world.

Recap

Whether it is the historic Furman-Citadel rivalry or the railroad lines that brought cotton from the low country to the textile mills of the Upstate, Greenville and Charleston have always had a special connection.

We Choose Charleston for our first church plant in order to see a vibrant, biblically-oriented, discipleship-focused church established in this history city. We believe God has called us to influence other churches to help them incorporate the lessons He has taught us, and one of the most effective ways to do this is to plant churches. We are excited about the opportunity  this represents for our Downtown campus pastor, Will Plonk, and Grace Church as a whole. For more information about Grace City Church click below.

Jump Start’s focus is to help men and women transition back into the workplace, who without training and support would otherwise have a hard time doing so. The metric of success is to reduce recidivism in South Carolina, our nation, and beyond.

We are excited about helping the Upstate community reduce recidivism and restore broken lives.

Miracle Hill provides food, shelter for homeless adults, homes for at-risk children, and residential addiction recovery (Overcomers and Renewal). Every day, 80 clients experience life change in the seven month, Christ-centered residential Overcomers program.

Miracle Hill offers safe, affordable, transitional housing that provides accountability and structure to our addiction recovery graduates from the Overcomers and Renewal programs and helps keep them on the right track in their newfound sobriety. Graduates have the opportunity to gain stable employment, build healthy relationships, and restore confidence in themselves and their relationship with Christ. Most importantly, these houses provide an alternative to moving into areas that would encourage relapse.

The mission of Project HOPE Foundation is to lead the way in providing a lifespan of services for the autism community through programs that Help families, Open minds, Promote inclusion, and Expand potential.

Travelers Rest sprouted from a stopover point for weary travelers in the early 1800s. On occasion, it was even necessary to stay in Travelers Rest for months to wait out the mountain winters before moving on. Today Travelers Rest enjoys a revitalized main street with fun dining and shopping experiences. The pedestrian friendly streets encourage outdoor activities from the Swamp Rabbit Trail to city parks.

We Choose Travelers Rest as our next area for campus development. As we continue to grow as a multisite church, we are excited that a campus here could be a catalyst to members and attendees to live and serve locally. Please join us in prayer as we seek guidance as we launch a new campus in this area. Travelers Rest campus coming the fall of 2017!

Over 17 countries are represented in an average Grace en Español worship service. In order to continue to reach the 40-60 thousand Spanish speakers in Greenville County, Grace en Español is going to start a second campus at Harrison Bridge. Mauldin and Simpsonville are large population areas for Latinos — We Choose to go where people need a healthy local church to grow in their faith.

Several years ago, when the Grace en Español campus began, we needed translated resources to shepherd our congregation. Subsequently, women from Grace, along with others we have trained from other churches, have begun bridging the gap in Spanish discipleship resources for women, taking the Ezer material into Latin America.

Just in the last year, we have sold or provided over 1,300 copies of Biblical Femininity and Body Matters en Español. And 150 women in Honduras, 400 women in Colombia, 50 women in Costa Rica, and over 100 women in Nicaragua (via Grace trips) have been discipled through the Ezer resources.

For the past three years, the Osborns have been studying the Menyan language and culture while building relationships with their neighbors. Together, the Menya missionary team has developed an alphabet for the Menyan language and taught a first literacy course to sixteen Menyan adults. The purpose of the literacy program is to produce capable readers who will eventually read and teach from a vernacular Bible. Currently, the team is writing lessons and translating Bible passages in preparation for their first teaching of God’s Word in the local language. That teaching will walk the Menya people through the entire story of the Bible from creation through the promise of a new heaven and earth so the Menya people can grasp the full revelation of God distinct from their own traditional animistic beliefs.

Kids and students are a vital part of the life of the local church. Our mission is to partner with parents in a way that helps them lead their children to a gospel-centered life ultimately taking ownership for their faith.

We Choose to continue to teach biblical truth through original curriculum, as well as publish this curriculum for the benefit of other churches. In our student ministry, we are dedicated to moving students toward spiritual maturity and identity with the local church. We count it a privilege to disciple over 2,500 kids and students each week.

This year, we have launched over 20 re:generation groups focused on finding healing and recovery in Christ from all forms of brokenness in our lives. Re:generation is a 12-step discipleship group that encourages us to grow in understanding of our idols and our sinful patterns, and to turn to Christ for our comfort, strength, and freedom.

“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasures as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life.”
– 1 Timothy 6

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through Him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. Christ is also the head of the church, which is his body.”
– Colossians 1

Every dollar given to Grace goes to support ministry to our church members, to our local community, and to our partners around the world. The Bible instructs us to give cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances as part of our worship (2 Corinthians 9:7; Proverbs 3:9). We are reminded that Christ’s sacrifice for us is our own motivation to gladly sacrifice. All that we have is His anyway.
