About Sending Organizations
All foreign staff members of Grace come under the sponsorship of a GIS approved sending organization. This can be an approved mission agency or a like-minded church. The sending organization agrees to support the staff member through prayer, pastoral care, and finances, to the extent agreed upon.
Grace also asks that sponsoring churches or agencies be available to respond to a crises and assist the staff member and GIS with any communication challenges that might arise.
Churches or organizations needs to send GIS a letter affirming the applicant’s affiliation with them and their backing of the person, along with a copy of the organization’s doctrinal statement (or the address of a website where the statement appears).
Many sending organizations currently sponsor staff or have in the past, including IMB (Southern Baptist), SIL, New Tribes Missions, WEC, CMA, Pioneers International, OMF, Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ), Wycliffe Associates, Assemblies of God, Worldventure, Ripe for Harvest, EFCA, Free Methodist World Missions, TEAM, SIM, TeachBeyond and others. We invite staff from many organizations and denominations to Grace, if they agree with our Statement of Faith.
