Grace City Missions exists to lead our city and our world into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
We love our city and our world through relationships. We are intentional about who we partner with as we serve compassionately and consistently in order to restore individuals and ourselves into right relationship with God, others, creation, and self.

This team will work with Public Church, a new church plant in Amsterdam. We will help mentor, disciple, and encourage those already involved in launching Public (which is planting via a coffee shop) so they can reach their city more effectively. During the day, we will work with local ministries in the city to serve and extend the reputation of Public and in the evening, we will build relationships with members of the church to help strengthen their faith. We will also connect with ministries who work to rescue victims of sex-trafficking in order to learn more about what they do and how we can help. This trip is for ages 18 and up.
