building a community to reach a community

Global Partners

These front-line servants are in the trenches of living out the Gospel in various places in our world. One third of earth’s population has never heard the Good News of the offer of forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ. Grace Fellowship is a “sending” church with our missionary partners having launched out from our midst. 

GFC financially supports and works closely with these Global Partners who express our strategic focus on bringing the gospel to the world.

Jacqueline Bland
Virginia/South Africa

Jacqui came to our local East Tennessee State University as an athlete, came to faith in Christ, grew through her time at Grace Fellowship, and then became one of our first missionaries. After serving over 30 years with Cru, Jacqui now serves with Hope of Glory Ministries, a South African outreach to at-risk children that she co-founded.

Jeff and Michelle Champlin
Johnson City, TN

Jeff and Michelle are newly appointed partners, preparing to serve with World Team. They will be eventually serving the unchurched population in Spain. At this time, Jeff & Michelle are in the Tri-Cities and available to share about their ministry with your group.

Todd and Kristen  

Todd and Kristen served in bible translation efforts in Asia for a number of years, then transferred back to the US in the fall of 2016 due to the health of their son. Currently Todd is still with the same organization, updating a software program that supports bible translation.

Other Missionaries
Sensitive areas of the world

We currently have three partner families that are serving in parts of the world where the gospel and missionary activity are not welcome. For their safety and on-going ministry they are not listed on our website.

Missionary Friends

GFC is honored to be connected to these missionaries who have been a part of our Grace church family and now serve in bringing the gospel to the world.
