2017 ANNUAL REPORT

Wow, what a year 2017 was. This past year, we saw a record high in numbers across multiple areas of ministry – praise God! It’s your generosity, your sacrifice of time and your commitment to God’s vision that fuels us to success! As you read some of the highlights from 2017, remember that numbers have names, names have stories, and every story matters to God. Enjoy! — Tim Howey

Grace@Home is a 20+ year discipleship model that we have developed in an attempt to support parents in raising children who are lifetime followers of Jesus.
