Over this summer, CE National’s Operation Barnabas summer ministry teams with 61 students from around the USA took on California! These teams were all over SoCal (and even off to NorCal) and made a big impact on our churches, leaders, students and communities! Check out the website for pictures and reports. THANK YOU to CE National and Operation Barnabas for your Impact!
Also, if your church was impacted, your students can apply to be part of next year’s team! Operation Barnabas is a three week high school summer ministry training program equipping students to live on mission through evangelism training, character development, and servant-leadership.

We are glad for the Unanimous vote for the new Executive Board for the Grace Leaders Network for 2018-2019. Our Executive Board is unique in that it highlights unique aspects of our network through its five roles:
A day of GLADness with our Network on April 10, 2018. Thanks to 40+ leaders from 13 of our regional Grace Churches for the time and the encouragement!
We worshiped, prayed, talked, listened, watched videos, gave away books & coffee and ate steak together with glad and sincere hearts! It was awesome to hear about what God is doing in His Church and through His people all over our region!
The following churches were present and shared a celebration & prayer update:
We will have greetings from the Charis Fellowship office, Charis Alliance Global, updates from around our region and connecting with your ministry friends and colleagues! We will also have some special gifts/raffle prizes as well! Then make sure you stick around for a FREE Tri-Tip Steak Lunch!
BRING YOUR STAFF, ELDERS, LEADERS, & VOLUNTEERS (both men & women are welcome)! We can’t wait to see you there!
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.
We request that each church which is a member of the Grace Churches Network contribute annually a fair dues amount. Annual dues is $1 per Church Member. (Note: The National Charis Fellowship (formerly FGBC) dues are based on another figure.)
Why? Because it’s going to be a time of conversations, celebrations and challenges from one another and leaders around the globe!
Our Regional Roundtable is an important time where we want EVERY leader in our network churches and ministries to attempt to be there. Please set aside the time in your schedule NOW! And BRING YOUR STAFF, ELDERS, LEADERS, & VOLUNTEERS (both men & women are welcome!)!
To thank you for your labor for our Lord, we are providing a nice steak lunch for all who come! Also, we will have some give-a-ways of books and coffee…so you could go home with even more than an energizing conversations with fellow leaders. We want you to be glad about what God is doing in our region!
Did you put this appointment in your calendar yet? If so, see you there! If not, would you… please! 🙂
