SERVE THE WORLD
We are a mission-minded church that motivates and mobilizes the body of Christ to align their hearts with the completion of the great commission. Our desire as a church is to help equip disciples who then become apostles for our Lord Jesus Christ. We live out the love of Christ in our lives, serve where there is need, and grow as a united body that submits our lives to the authority of Jesus Christ; both locally and globally we live on mission.

We will be serving with our sister organization, Live Love Malawi, which is lead by a team of African Bible College graduates.

The Grove partners with the original African Bible College, deep in the jungles of Liberia, in the oasis town of Yekepa. Our teams go into the surrounding villages to build community and establish long-term relationships. Whether it is delivering shoes and food to nearby schools and churches or hiking deep into the jungle to meet with remote communities, this trip to Liberia is life-changing and not for the faint of heart.
We will be working with Syrian refugees living in Beirut and in the Beqaa Valley near the Syrian border. Caleb and Nicolette Hutcherson are missionaries who were sent out by The Grove in 2008 to serve in Beirut, Lebanon. We will be working alongside the Hutchersons with ministries through the local church and directly in the refugee camps. Not only will we be serving within refugee communities but we will be learning about the complexities of ministering to a primarily Muslim community.
