The Mission

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew 28:19

The mission of Grace NM is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to glorify God among the nations by Establishing, Equipping, and Empowering (E3) vibrant, reproducing churches.

The Vision

IT BEGINS HERE…
…with the members of Grace NM so radically and intimately loving God that missions is a normal part of each individual's life and our church culture. The generations represented within Grace NM are increasingly united as each person gladly invests time talent and treasure to see our global mission of “glorifying God among the nations” fulfilled. 

IT EFFECTIVELY SPREADS…
…to our focus areas as prayer movements spring to life throughout Mexico, Israel, and other countries in our focus. The Holy Spirit moves in power revealing the greatness of Jesus through miraculous signs and wonders; in response, many indigenous people trust Christ, becoming whole-hearted disciples and leaders in the local church. Believers in each of our focus areas are committed to equipping, growing, and reproducing self-sustained fellowships.

IT RESULTS IN…
…flourishing churches with visions of planting other churches. These churches are committed to growing and equipping their members and training pastors and lay leaders to carry out the Great Commission.

IT INVOLVES YOU…
…as a member of Grace NM it is fulfilled by more than a tithe, it depends upon the generous giving of all our members to advance the kingdom. It is accomplished when people are moved from hesitation about missions to sacrificial involvement in short and long term works! Established relationships among Grace NM members and brothers and sisters in our focus areas transform fear and ignorance of foreign cultures into boldness and readiness to see the Gospel go forth in all areas of the globe. To realize the eternal joy of fulfilling our call among the nations, self-denial is required.

Haifa, Israel 🇮🇱

Tree of Life Ministries

In 2010, Ariel and Shayla Hyde returned to Israel and started using every opportunity possible to reach Israelis with the Gospel. Serving as part of Carmel Congregation and Kerem-El Congregation, they led many outreaches on Jewish holidays and multiple-day evangelistic events. Hundreds of Israelis experienced the love of Messiah and heard the Gospel for the first time. Meanwhile, they began holding workshops to equip believers in evangelism and worship. Ariel and his father Richard published the booklet “Supernatural or Just Remarkable,” now used widely in outreach in Israel.

Ariel and his friend, Eliel Fos, both sensed God calling them to share the Gospel on the streets, film the conversations, and post the videos online in order to reach many more Israelis. They are amazed how God has multiplied these simple efforts and caused the videos to reach over 10 million views, sparking countless conversations about Yeshua-Jesus on social media with seekers. As their team expands, the Lord continues to broaden their opportunities for equipping and outreach. Today, they mobilize Jewish and Arab believers in their area to share the Good News on the streets.

Ariel and his team’s hearts desire has always been to bring life to Israel. During a time of fasting and prayer, God surprised them by laying it on their hearts to help save the lives of children in the womb. They’re creating a video series and campaign to help end abortion in Israel, while also reaching those who’ve had abortions, with the message of grace and forgiveness found in Messiah.

GCM (Global Catalytic Ministries)

Global Catalytic Ministries (GCM)
GCM is a disciple-making nonprofit organization that makes disciples in the darkest places and beyond, by using access ministry strategies that help meet needs and build relationships with the lost, loving the lost to salvation in Christ, coaching current believers through our disciple-making process which leads to launching church gatherings, and planting churches that create movement.

Background
Saudi Arabia, with a population of nearly 35.94 million (CIA Factbook, 2023), predominantly Sunni and Shiite Muslims, presents a challenging environment for Christians, especially those converting from Islam. Apostasy is legally considered a capital offense. Despite these challenges, there's a growing interest in Christianity. For the first time ever, we have a Disciple-Making leader in the very heart of Islam, Mecca. GCM, which has been operational in Saudi Arabia since 2022, seeks to expand its team to enhance its disciple-making efforts and foster growth in the national church.

Impact Story
In 2023, 16 new Christian groups started. Recently, GCM's Saudi leader facilitated a meeting with a Muslim-background Saudi man who gave his life to Jesus, resulting in the new convert receiving a Bible and being baptized. This man said he never met a Christian in his life. This was one of the few baptisms recorded in recent Saudi History.

Potential Growth Opportunity
For the first time ever, we now have access to the heart of Islam in Mecca, with 2 million Muslims taking their pilgrimage here annually as their holiest place. The church is said to be growing 60% annually in Arabia, outpacing Iran and Afghanistan.
