Senior Pastor Ed Sears has the complete oversight of the mission program and all its operations as it fulfills the Great Commission given by the Lord to take the Gospel of Christ outside the doors of the church into the whole world. The day to day operations of Grace World Missions is handled under the watchful eye of Grace Executive Pastor Ron Hawkins, who directs the program on behalf of the church.

Grace Baptist mission’s program supports 68 missionary families and 9 organizations representing all continents and 32 countries of the world.

GWM also operates as a mission agency, serving missionaries in their fulfillment of answering God’s call to missions. GWM exists to serve the local church as it sends missionaries into God’s harvest field. GWM, acting on behalf of the local church and not independent of the local church, provides accountability, training, and assistance to our missionaries as they carry forth their ministry, beginning with pre-field, continuing with on-field, and going forward through furlough ministries. GWM has developed a unique approach of acceptance of missionaries by utilizing a tiered approach to receiving missionaries into GWM.

"But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Acts 1:8 exemplifies the purpose of missions at Grace Baptist Church. While we support more than 60 missionaries worldwide, we also encourage each member of GBC to be a missionary in their own community. Winston-Salem is in need of the same Jesus Christ as every other country in the world.
