The Big House

110 N. 2nd St., M’town

The church that faithfully proclaims the gospel of God’s Grace is always in danger of disconnecting and isolating from the world that desperately needs to hear this good news. This motivated us a number of years ago to begin to pray and search for a strategic location in our community to live out the truth of the gospel so as to see God draw more people to the Savior, Jesus Christ.

For more than a decade, God has been opening doors for Grace Church to establish a number of after-school ministries at schools across our community through which we’ve had the joy of sharing the gospel with hundreds of students and families. Yet the need continued to arise for a more consistent, ongoing presence to love, serve and learn from our northside neighbors. As we prayed into what that could look like, God directed our attention to a foreclosed home and property in a neighborhood near one of the schools that had partnered with us for years. In the Fall of 2016, we were able to purchase this home for the purpose of building relational bridges for gospel ministry.

Our vision for the Big House is “to share the love, hope and value found in Jesus Christ by building relationships, meeting needs and creating a place of refuge in our neighborhood.” Some of the individuals from our congregation who embody this vision reside on the second floor of the Big House. The main floor, large backyard, driveway and garage of the Big House are used to host various gospel outreaches as well as weekly after-school tutoring programs, ELL Bible studies and discipleship communities.

We’re continually humbled by the immense privilege of doing life and ministry with friends and families “from every tribe, language, people and nation.” The Big House has broadened the scope and intensified the joy of cross-cultural ministry to youth and families in our community, to the Glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom.
