The Missions ministry is responsible for ongoing liaison with existing missionary efforts that we support both internationally and within the United States. This ministry reviews requests for missionary support and identifies new opportunities to serve God in spreading His teachings throughout the world (Matt. 28:19-20). This ministry also keeps the Missions Bulletin Board updated.

Haiti – Hope for Haiti’s Children
Since 1995, Hope for Haiti’s Children has been a trusted bridge for individuals, churches, corporations, and foundations to experience the joy of making a significant and lasting improvement in the lives of thousands of Haitian children. Grand Strand participates in this ministry with monthly monetary donations, and many members sponsor children, send Christmas gift boxes, make t-shirt dresses, and donate sunglasses to be used on medical mission trips. Several members have also gone to Haiti and served during those trips. We have also contributed to emergency needs. Check out more at www.hopeforhaitischildren.org.
