Our Story

Where it all began

As a result of a religious awakening and revival that took place in the late 1800s, a small group of believers regularly gathered in Grabill, Indiana, and grew both in number and zeal for God.  Eventually, they joined the Missionary Church Association, which was still in its infancy, having begun in 1898. In 1901, GMC constructed one of the first buildings in Grabill, Indiana! With a strong resolve that the Gospel should be taken to the ends of the earth, GMC’s original 40 charter members sought to change the world. Being world changers proved to be (and continues to be) a fundamental pursuit at GMC through its long line of devout leadership, community connection and abundant support for missions.

Where we are now

Like the wonderful communities that surround Grabill, GMC is growing! In the past several years we’ve seen growth in all areas but especially in young families, kids and teenagers. Our focus remains laser sharp: to help every person look more like Jesus each day. How that happens may look different today than it did in the past and will look different in the future than it does today. If you’re looking for a place to plant your life, make a difference and help others do the same, you’ve come to the right place!

Where we are headed

Simply put, we're headed  wherever God wants us to go and be intentional while we’re there! Whether it’s where we spend most of our time, where we spend some of our time, where we really don’t want to spend our time or where we never thought we’d ever spend our time (like across the ocean!), God wants us to be fully present, fully willing and fully ready to serve and love others--
an adventure awaits!
