Serving as the hands and feet of Jesus, locally and globally.

God is calling each of us to be his ambassadors in our neighborhoods, cities, and the farthest ends of the world. At The Grove, we would love for you to get involved in God’s mission and use your time, talents, and treasures for his glory.

Local Church Community

We are a collaborative of local churches serving our community in ways that demonstrate God's love through acts of kindness and meeting real needs.


At The Grove, we believe God gave us the mission to be his witnesses, not only in our own neighborhoods and communities, but to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:19-20). The purpose of our Short-Term Trips is simple: live as ambassadors for Christ that seek to bless our global partners and national ministries as they strengthen long-term ministry efforts. When we "go" on a short-term trip, it’s to shine God’s light on and around our ministry partners. Our desire is to encourage, support, and offer them support through prayer and service in the field they are called.

Please pray about how you might be used to advance the name of Jesus in the nations of the world. Whether it’s by going on one of these short-term mission trips yourself, praying for a team, or financially supporting someone else so they can go, you can make a difference!
