Unreached people groups in previously closed nations like China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Muslim controlled areas of the Philippines are now receiving exposure to the Gospel from a Grace Brethren church and its family focus. An 11-member team from First Grace Church of Dayton, Ohio (Bruce Jackson, lead pastor), recently returned from helping with relief efforts in Tocloban City, Philippines, and Bogor, Indonesia. In addition, the Jackson Family headlined an evangelistic concert at the world’s largest high school in Pasig City, Philippines, Rizal High School.
In Bogor, Indonesia, where 87 percent of the population claims to be Muslim, large evangelistic meetings were conducted. As a result, 132 individuals prayed to receive Christ as Savior while hundreds of others committed their homes and family relationships to God.
First Grace just celebrated its 130th anniversary with fresh leadership, a fresh vision, and a fresh fire to reach the world with the Gospel. Catch a glimpse of that in the highlight video (above), which includes an inspirational song by the Jackson Family.
