Introducing the Grace Churches Network

Because of your belief and confidence in the FUTURE, we are glad to introduce the next generation of the Grace Brethren Conference of Southern California – Arizona — the GRACE CHURCHES NETWORK. 

The purpose of our working together is to glorify God by encouraging relationships between both ministry leaders and member churches so that our cooperation in mission endeavors, Biblical education, and leadership development, might lead to the multiplication of new disciples and new churches.
