everything we do as a church is done with one
incredible motivation – LOVE.
More specifically, we do what we do out of love for Jesus and love for people. Our goal is to go on mission to help others experience a deep and meaningful life in Jesus Christ. Jesus said that the greatest command is to LOVE GOD and the second greatest command is to LOVE OTHERS. It is with this incredible motivation that we turn our thoughts to the practice of giving.
Grey Stone Church’s mission is to make disciples of all peoples through the Great Commission (found in matthew 28:18-20). Our strategy is found in acts 1:8. As followers of Jesus, we are all a part of this task and are to be His witnesses. Jesus has commissioned us to be His heart, His hands, and His voice. Through prayer, giving and going, we strive to make a difference with opportunities to serve others and share Jesus Christ.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
ZIMBABWE: This year a new team will be working in Zimbabwe, Africa near the city of Harare. Our goal is to establish a partnership with a local church, provide discipleship, women’s ministry, and children’s Bible study resources for the villages and local communities. We will be on location working in a rural setting, providing a holiday Bible school and L.I.F.E. Conference.
ZAMBIA: Grey Stone teams also travel to a location in Zambia, Africa. We work on location in the “bush country” working with the Mawawa people in the Western Province and in the city of Mongu. We will be working with local missionary Austin Maseka to organize a L.I.F.E. Conference for the villages and communities.
Since 2013, we have sent teams to a location in Asia to establish a relationship with on-site IMB Missionaries and prospective avenues for future work. We are attempting to supplement work with an unreached people group (the Nosu and Han people) under a 15-year commitment.
Grey Stone has partnered with Fellowship Oshawa to plant a church in Toronto, CN as part of our 3 Year “Rise To the Occasion”. We send teams multiple times throughout the year to serve and work within the community, build the church, and share the Gospel to statistically the most diverse city in the world. People of all ages and skill-sets are welcome to travel and serve.
MISSION: CENTRAL AMERICA
Central America and Caribbean (C&C): Since 2008, Grey Stone has been sending teams to spread the gospel to Haiti with ministries in Port-au-Prince. Our teams have provided construction for three church plants, medical outreach, ministered to the orphans, led a teacher-academy at a school, trained local pastors, encouraged the missionaries at the orphanage, & worked in the community through evangelism efforts and compassion projects. We also have a rotating student project in Belize.
Grey Stone will send a 10-member medical mission team to the Roma Gypsies in Romania (a minority group on the edge of society in deep poverty). They will work with Hungarian Christians and an American missionary. This is a partnership with the NC Baptists on Mission.
We have two ongoing projects in the United States: Disaster Relief and New York Graffiti. We work to provide relief from suffering caused by disasters by providing services, care and assistance. We work with various disaster organizations to achieve this goal.
We are also partnered with Graffiti Church which is located on the lower east side of NYC. Annually, we collect and deliver school supplies as well as used coats for the Graffiti Kids After School program. This allows us to provide a low-cost, Christ-centered after school option for the community.
