Building a Legacy of Grace
Building For The Next Generation
The need is too great and the cause too compelling for Grace Adventures to remain the same.
One Life Touched by God can Change the World
Over the years, Grace Adventures has consistently grown to serve more and more people, allowing greater opportunities to impact people with Jesus Christ, one child, father, mother, church at a time. Our 40+ ministry programs span all age groups, group sizes, and demographics to provide unique ministry experiences for kids, adults, families, churches, schools, and businesses.
Our heartbeat is to see the lost saved, the discouraged strengthened, and the broken made whole by the living Word of God. The need to share the gospel in a Christ-centered environment is greater than ever.
Legacy of Stewardship
At Grace Adventures our program fees and alternate income sources cover 100% of our operating expenses.
That means that every dollar that is invested in the ministry by individuals, families, businesses, and foundations goes straight into scholarships for campers, annual program, equipment upgrades, and capital projects.
Amid 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, Grace Adventures was able to complete $1.86 million of fundraising payments and emerge from the hardest season of ministry in our history debt-free.
Building A Legacy for Future Generations
The major project in this campaign, our new dining center, offers a world-class dining experience for both children and adults. Through having sufficient seating for all guests to dine together we gain at least 6 additional hours of program ministry time every day.
Additionally, through a ministry-centered design, we are now able to incorporate programming into meal times for a more integrated experience. This includes events, worship and teaching sessions, and themed activities.
The improved kitchen and dining room allow us to enhance menus, provide a more comfortable experience for adults, and serve multiple groups at once. Overlooking Upper Silver Lake, Lakeview Commons turns meal times into another opportunity for ministry to happen.
