MISSIONS

At Grand Avenue Baptist Church we believe that everyone is a missionary and that it's all about making disciples. Don't miss out on being a part of God's plan to reach the River Valley, Arkansas, the United States, and the World.

Sponsor A Child

We have partnered with Compassion International to support 2 churches in Ethiopia that combined have around 300 children that need sponsored. We are over 2/3 of the way to our goal! Would you be willing to sponsor a child today? CLICK HERE to choose a child to sponsor from our partner churches in Ethiopia.

When you sponsor a child, you care for and encourage them through prayer, letter writing, and financial support. That support empowers a local church to individually and holistically meet their needs in a loving, safe community where they can learn, grow, play and dream.
