Our Global Ministry Partners

Jacqueline Bland serves in South Africa. She 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 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 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.

Steve and Laura Persenaire serve with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) in Indonesia, where Steve is an administrator and makes mission flights, and Laura serves in mission hospitality.

Jason and Sara Phipps are launching out to serve in Bolivia with Christian Veterinary Mission.

Justin and Steffani serve in Spain with New Mission Systems. They are in their second year of ministry to immigrants in rural Spain.

We currently have two 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.
