We are Touching Heaven and Changing Earth through missions.

At Grace Fellowship church we pray for a different missionary each week during the Sunday service.

We send missionaries locally and around the world. We encourage members to take part in short-term mission trips and have organized trips for members to go to Honduras, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, London and Belize.


The fourth Sunday of every month is our “Mission Sunday”

when we put special focus on a particular missionary or mission need.


In our worship center, you will see flags from all over the world. Each one of them represents a country where someone from GFC has gone either as a short-term or long-term missionary.



We pray for a different missionary each week during the Sunday service. The fourth Sunday

of every month is our “Mission Sunday” with a time of special focus on a particular missionary

or mission need.  There will be regular opportunities to meet our missionaries in person, hear their  testimonies and get first-hand insights for supporting them. These dates will be posted to our calendar.



Giving envelopes are provided every week in our Sunday bulletin and can be used to give to GFC missionaries.  Simply fill in the line for missions with the amount of your gift. GFC sends the designated funds to our missionaries.



Grace Fellowship Church also encourages its members to take part in short-term mission trips.  GFC has organized several trips for members to go to Honduras as a team to serve in a slum area of Tegucigalpa with outreach, house building and food distribution.

Dan Boerger teaching with a coworker

Brenda Boerger


Wycliffe Bible Translators

There is great importance in raising up the next generation to go into different countries, translate the Bible and establish churches. That is why Grace Fellowship Church is blessed to have Dan and Brenda Boerger as missionaries. They have been members of Wycliffe Bible Translators for over 35 years.

The Boergers served for 20 years with the Natqgu-speaking people of the Solomon Islands and helped them translate and dedicate the New Testament, Ruth, and Psalms in 2008. They are now leveraging that experience at Dallas International University (DIU) and SIL International.

Dan is administrative assistant to the Academic Dean of DIU. He leads a Tuesday night home group, now meeting on line. He is author of The Interpreted New Testament (TINT), which Pastor Joe Oakley refers to regularly.


Brenda is an Adjunct Professor at DIU, where she teaches and mentors students planning to go into cross-cultural ministries, including Bible translation. Her main SIL assignment is as an international consultant in language and culture documentation, which she has done since 2010. She was recently inducted as a fellow of the Pike Center for Integrative Scholarship.


They see their current role as helping raise up the next generation of cross-cultural workers to take over that outreach until Christ's return.

Brent Brollier, Linguist


Pioneer Bible Translators

Brent and Laura Brollier are missionaries with Pioneer Bible Translators (PBT) working since 2012 to translate the Bible for a Bible-less West Africa people group: the Konyanka.


Laura is counseling and mentoring other young missionaries while caring for their baby. Brent regularly meets with village leaders to develop an alphabet for the rural people group. Once the Konyanka people can read using their alphabet, they can also read the Bible translated in their language!


The President of Pioneer Bible Translators describes Brent as, “one of their finest linguists." He knows Hebrew and Greek and is fluent in French. Their mission to start an alphabet and finish a Bible can take 10-15 years. The president continues, “[He] is most capable to do this project.”


The Brolliers are all about touching heaven and changing earth, which is the vision of Grace Fellowship Church. They believe God will provide so that they can spend their time on their calling. Donations from Grace Fellowship Church helped the Brolliers go to France where they learned to speak French fluently.


It is up to each linguist to secure needed support. Brent and Laura believe God will provide for all of their needs by touching people's hearts to give.


Ron and Lynn Dennis


Ministers to the Hondurus and Venezuela People Groups

Ron was called to the ministry in 1965 in college in southern California.  And Lynn in 1960 was called into ministry at the age of 13 while at a church camp in Santa Cruz, California


They have been in ministry for 51 years.  They were Wycliffe Bible Translators for 48 years and then retired.  While at Wycliffe they were GFC missionaries.    But during retirement they realized that God still had on their hearts, the people of Honduras and Venezuela.  They decided to spend their own money to help them.  They fly in once a year, sometimes Lynn flies over and teaches but they help with food while there.  But during the year they send help for food and supplies to help with a benevolence and relief funds.  They have paid their own expenses of airfare and all the help they given these two countries.  So, really we found they didn’t really retire, they just changed ministries.  We decided to add them back on as GFC missionaries. 

Their hearts are drawn to them because Honduras and Venezuela are the least reached people.   Besides helping with food they bring encouragement and discipleship.  They also bring written materials for the churches and schools there. 


The Tolpon of Honduras often lack basic food and necessary medicine.  They send funds as they have funds available. 


They are active at GFC service and also are a large help to Pastor Awilda at Grace Latino.  Lynn translates English into Spanish for Grace Latino Church.


They are greatly loved at GFC, they are faithful to both services and faithful to help in these two countries as funds are made possible. 


Please consider partnering with them to help the very needy in Honduras and Venezuela. 


Mary Dunham Faulkner

Grace Place building & first two orphans


Leah's Sisters

Her experience of living in Thailand for 25 years where she founded and directed an Occupational Center for girls at risk has given her a unique foundation for cross-cultural partnerships. Mary has also worked extensively in Africa where she has partnered with the Rwandan government and Restoration Church of Kigali, Rwanda to build the Jireh Business Training Center for Women.


She is the author of six books, including Gentle Wisdom for Tough Times. Mary also conducts leadership conferences and seminars in Eastern Europe, S.E. Asia, Africa, and South America.


Mary of Leah Sisters has established several orphanages over 25 years, but then joined ministering to the slum children headed up by Pastor Bradip, who is one of her spiritual sons whose wife, Rattana, was one of the girls in her first Girl’s Home in North Thailand. The pastor wanted to build an orphanage there in Burma with the ministry to the slum children. She said of course, let’s pray about it. The pastor and his wife had pastored a church in Chiangmai, Acts of Grace and for years worked together to minister to the slum children. They began to ask God for land. Little by little God opened financial doors to start building. He asked if he could name it Grace Place and she thought that a great name. Donors began to help continue to build it, but Grace Fellowship Church was committed to sowing into seeing the completion
of it. We are happy to announce that Grace Place has been completed and has just started with two orphans, as more will me added later.


Candi Summers with BESTWA child

Candi Summers (center in blue)

Andy Perkins, BESTWA Founder



Candi Summers is the Executive Director of BESTWA. Along with her team in Liberia, they feed 1,400 children daily.


Candy passionately serves in Liberia to save children, following her father's example. When her father Andy, founder of BESTWA, first went to Liberia as a businessman, he saw children sick and dying from lack of food and medicine. Most children there didn't live past 8 years old. God put the desire in his heart to save as many children as possible. He came back to the States determined to find a way to save children's lives.


There is such poverty in Liberia that a grandmother, who had no food to feed herself, and her granddaughter, went to a nearby river to drown herself and her granddaughter, rather than see them both starve. Strangers saved the child and took her to BESTWA. They named her ‘Blessing’ and she is now 9 years old.


Since BESTWA began feeding and supplying medicine to the area, they have not lost a child. Even during COVID-19 they have had not had sickness with their team or their children.  They are now trying to feed families of the children because everything is shut down and there is no work.  They now feed 600 people of their families for $2200. Some of the children have even graduated high school!


Medicine and vitamins amounting to 14 million dollars were donated to BESTWA. However, there is a great cost to ship these supplies overseas. Candi lives very modestly to be sure as much money as possible is going to the children. The Lord said, "as much as you do into these you do unto me."


They make trips to Liberia to oversee the team there. Just $28 can feed a child for a month.


Valentin (Val) and Tatyana Sviontek



In the mid 1990’s after the fall of Communism, a tremendous wave of revival broke out in the former Soviet Union.  Among the many salvations were Jewish believers in desperate need of Biblically sound Messianic-based discipleship and training.  To answer the need Shady Grove Church sent Dr. Wayne and Bonnie Wilks were sent to begin the first Messianic Jewish Bible Institute school.  At the same time Valentin and Tatyana Sviontek were called to go as well and move back to their native Ukraine to assist the Wilks’.


Both Val and Tatyana came from Jewish families and both confessed Yeshua (Jesus) as teenagers.  They met at a youth camp for believers shortly after coming to faith, which ironically was located in the very city that MJBI was birthed outside of Odessa, Ukraine in 1996.


When MJBI began to expand internationally, the Sviontek’s ministry did as well.  MJBI recently transitioned in the Gateway Center of Israel.  The Sviontek’s love of their ministry in Ukraine, Israel, Europe and Zimbabwe.

The Lord led them to stay with the ministry God gave them in all these places.  They have schools of leadership taught to the Messianic Believers.  At one time as a Director at MJBI Val and some other leaders baptized 5000 Zimbabweans’ of the Limba Tribe as new believers in Yeshua (Jesus).  They continue schools there. 


In Europe and Israel involves congregational planting, youth and children’s ministries, evangelism, leadership retreats and musical outreaches.  They value worship and equipping the ministry. 


Their greatest need now is to complete the building for seminars/equipping center at Bethel.  To finish the building they are in need of $20,000.  God says if you bless Israel you will be blessed.  Please consider sowing into the completion of this Center.


Val and Tatyana, our GFC missionaries are friends with the Mission Pastor and Pastors Joe and Deborah Oakley, they have known the Svionteks’  for a number of years. 


Samson and Qamar Titus


Ten14 Ministries

Their goal at Ten.14 Ministries is to increase the ministry workforce, provide reliable transportation for the ministers in Pakistan, stimulate the local Pakistani economy, provide ambulatory care to the “Untouchable”, and help provide an opportunity for quality education for those who would not have it otherwise.


They were both born and raised in Pakistan as the fourth generation Christians. Their great grandparents converted from Sikh religion in the early 1900’s, when John Nelson Hyde (more commonly known as Praying Hyde) was preaching through India. They both accepted Jesus Christ as savior and were baptized in Pakistan. According to the Pakistani tradition their parents arranged their marriage in 1989. They attended All Nations Christian College in London, England and returned to Pakistan in 1991 to work with the tribal (Bheel) people in southern Pakistan. In 1994 they came to the United States of America and were ordained to be ministers of the Gospel in 1995. They set up the mission’s office to raise much needed financial support for the work in Pakistan. When (Qamar’s Father) Dr. William Daniel passed away in 1996, it placed them in the leadership position to oversee the work in Pakistan and raise financial support.

The Lord has broadened their vision. In addition to the work in Pakistan; they teach seminars/conferences on Cross Cultural Outreach, as well as minister in prayer and counseling as the Lord is bringing so many needy people across their path. They travel across the United States and other parts of the world to teach and preach.


A few years ago, they opened a sewing center where women learn to sew as a way to provide for their families and gain protection from the dangers of working in the fields. Donors provide new sewing machines at the beginning of a class and upon graduation, each women is given the sewing machine she has been working with. The sewing center is saving lives, building self esteem and providing a source of income for its students.


Their newest project is building a church. Strict rules require them to build a set distance away from the country's national religion meeting places. It is urgent that they build quickly before a national religion meeting place is erected within the designated area and they are unable to have their church. Their project needs urgent financial support.
