It’s that time of year…to renew your membership to our networks– as leaders and as churches!
Membership to the Grace Leaders Network
is open to all church and ministry leaders in harmony with the Grace Churches Network. For only $25 annually you can support our network to bless you and other regional leaders.
Your 2017-2018 annual dues are due on May 1, 2017, we have an online way for you to do so via credit card or you are welcome to send a check to “Grace Leaders Network,” Attn: Mike Jentes, E. 6565 Stearns St., Long Beach, CA 90815.
Tickets are only $25 for general admission and only $20 if you purchase 5 tickets or more! Our keynote speaker will be Jayson Georges. Jayson has served in Asia for 9+ years, has written two books on this topic and currently serves as a missiologist for Encompass World Partners in Atlanta. Jayson plans to return back into the mission field at the end of the summer so this unique opportunity will not be available again anytime soon!
Jayson has begun to forge a trail that most Christians have yet to consider and yet we guarantee the content he will present will be extremely valuable! Come and consider with us, is our Gospel, 3D?
Follow this link to register for the conference, we can’t wait to see you there!
Our theme for the day will be “Legacy” and we will get to hear some encouraging stories about the legacy left by others to us…and prompt us to think about the legacy we are leaving for others.
We don’t get to see our friends up in Simi Valley very much because of the distance… we hope you will make the extra effort to join us! We are bumping back our start time 30 minutes and going to provide lunch to help with travel & fellowship!
Our world is filled with a diversity of cultures that need to hear the good news of the Gospel.
Our church culture tends to focus on forgiveness through the removal of guilt, but people in the Majority World tend to seek honor or spiritual power. In today’s globalized world, Christians need to embrace a three-dimensional gospel that speaks to each of these realities.
Saturday May 13 from 5-9pm with Jayson Georges
in Simi Valley, California

We had time of prayer and sharing during the morning (un gran día) then enjoyed an amazing lunch prepared by his wife, Raquel & faithful member Christina! Thanks to Manuel and Raquel for blessing us!
As you can see below, there are many opportunities to connect coming up through the end of January! We hope you’ll look at the Upcoming Events and make the most of these opportunities!
A special time for the Grace Leaders Network to gather on January 10th at our Spanish church in Lakewood – connecting, praying, sharing and eating! We were blessed by our hosts Pastor Manuel & Raquel Espinosa. Great hospitality and great food! Thanks for hosting us!
Upcoming Locations for our Grace Leaders Network gatherings:
Our own Pastor Manuel Espinosa has invited us to join him at his church facility in East Lakewood (think North of Hawaiian Gardens).Our agenda for the day will feature some sharing and emphasis on ethnic initiatives here in our regional efforts. We are praying for a handful of languages and ethnicities to make disciples, and see churches form! Please invite all who have that heart to come with you to this special time!
In addition, if you show up, there is one guarantee–you will be PRAYED FOR!
After we are done with our Gathering, Pastor Manuel’s wife Raquel and others in the church family are making tamales and planning an outstanding Mexican lunch! We invite you to stick around and enjoy lunch together!
