Grace PCA is part of Christ’s global church and embraces the mission to carry the good news of Jesus into our local community and beyond. In some of Jesus’ final words to His disciples, he said, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.” This was a challenging statement because Jesus was calling his followers to go – not just to those they knew and felt comfortable with – but to people and places that they otherwise might not have considered. Because without Jesus, there is no hope.

Reaching Out to Our Community

We love St. Charles County, and we are committed to showing the love of Jesus Christ through our words and actions in this community. You will find members of the Grace family engaged in presenting the gospel to our local community in any number of ways: from serving those in the final stage of life as hospice volunteers to assisting at local community centers for underprivileged children, from working at local food pantries to helping local disabled and low-income homeowners fix-up their homes so they can avoid homelessness. We also regularly host Free4all events where those in need within our community are invited to come receive a delicious breakfast, pick up supplies and hear the Gospel. We invite you to come and join us in serving our Savior as we serve our community.

As part of our commitment to our community, we are also supportive of church planting. We presently support the work of Jason and Tiffany Moore, who planted New Creation Presbyterian Church in Wentzville, MO.

Reaching Beyond Our Community

College Students at Mizzou

We also are involved with our denomination's college ministry, known as Reformed University Fellowship (RUF). We support the efforts of RUF to serve the community of the University of Missouri Columbia. Rev. Ross Dixon is the Campus Minister for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at the University of Missouri. Ross has served in this capacity since 2003. He received a Master of Divinity degree from Covenant Theological Seminary in May of that same year.

Ross is married to Jenny, and they have one daughter, Avery. Ross is originally from Birmingham, Alabama and attended Auburn University, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resource Management. Jenny is originally from Houston, Texas and attended Vanderbilt University and later received a graduate degree in Physical Therapy. Jenny juggles the full schedule of full-time mom, part-time physical therapist, and hostess, providing hospitality for a number of college students. Avery enjoys playing dress-up, and she likes to dance.

Outside of spending time with college students, the Dixons enjoy exercise, play, and rest time with a good book. They love good Mexican food. Ross and Jenny love really good coffee, too.
You can read more about their ministry at the Mizzou RUF site.

Missionaries Around the World

One of the amazing things about Jesus Christ and His gospel is that He unites people from every “tribe, tongue, and nation” as they put their hope and trust in Him. As followers of Christ, we are not called simply to care for those who are just like us, but instead are supposed to carry the hope of the gospel into every part of the world–celebrating the way that Christ is at work in cultures different from our own, and seeking to be a part of that work. Grace Church has the privilege of partnering through our finances and our prayer with people who are sharing and living out the gospel of Christ all over the world.

Jason and Liz Polk

God has called Jason and Liz to work with the AIDS Care and Treatment (ACT) project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The ACT project cares for the profound physical, spiritual, and social needs of HIV-positive urban poor, while laying groundwork for a church-planting movement. Nearly 550 families receive food, shelter, medical care, counseling, assistance with school fees, orphan care, and Bible study and discipleship opportunities. Prior to being called to serve the ACT project, Jason served as Assistant Pastor of Worship and Discipleship here at Grace. For more information, please visit their web site.
