And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Song and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
We at Grace Mid City desire to see the name of Jesus exalted among every people group in the world. To that end, we give our time and finances to support evangelism, church planting, and discipleship efforts in multiple countries on multiple continents.
You can see the various mission projects we support below.
Also, linked below are some missions agencies that we support financially.
Uganda Baptist Seminary was founded in 1988 and is a ministry of the Baptist Mission of Uganda of the International Mission Board (SBC) and the Baptist Union of Uganda. In 2006 it was licensed by the National Council of Higher Education of the Ugandan Government to offer the degrees of certificate and diploma. UBS meets the needs of theological education for over 200 students who are Baptist pastors and church leaders by offering three levels of study: Certificate, Diploma, and Advanced Diploma.
In 2008, a partnership was formed between the CrossPoint congregation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and the Bugiri Baptist congregation in Bugiri, Uganda. Eventually this partnership included Grace Mid City. Under the deft leadership of Pastor George Wafula, the Bugiri congregation has grown in their spiritual maturity and expanse of ministry, including supporting local orphans, starting a school, building permanent structures on their property, evangelizing an unreached people group that migrated to southern Uganda, and replanting an old congregation! A few years after the partnership began, Bugiri Baptist send a mission team with the CrossPoint mission team to begin a new partnership with Faith Baptist in Busembatia, Uganda.
In 2013, we began a partnership with Pastor Ronald Kibumba in Busembatia, Uganda. We make an annual trip in November to Busembatia, working alongside the Faith congregation for the flourishing of their town. Other congregations, including Bugiri Baptist, join us on this trip. We participate in Women's Conference, Children's Conference, Pastor's Conference, bringing supplies to the local prison as well as the local health clinic. Please email Shelley for more details on the next trip.
We desire to make Jesus known in Mid City and greater Baton Rouge. Much of our ministry happens over everyday life. We believe that Christians are called to be Salt and Light in their neighborhoods, workplaces, and communities. We love to be intentional in connecting with what's already going on in our community.
