Epaphroditus was a man who loved Jesus. In the book of Philippians it is documented how he almost lost his life in delivering a gift from the church in Philippi to the Apostle Paul. Philippians 2:25-30 says this about Epaphroditus, “My brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need…for he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service for me.” It is the goal of our organization to model our mission after this man of God and his dedication to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The mission of Epaphroditus is the Great Commission as outlined in Matthew 28:18-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”.
Our focus is the nation of India, which is one of the most unreached nations on the planet when it comes to the Gospel. Our plan to help carry out the Great Commission in India will consist of the following:
Send people — in a manner worthy of God — on short-term, gospel-focused mission trips to India.
Act as a messenger between Grace Christian Ministry and the people and churches of the United States to convey information and resources.
Foster the existing relationship with our fellow workers in Christ in India to help spread the Gospel in their nation of India.
Engage with people and churches in the United States to establish relationships and encourage their support.
This site documents our past trips, what God is doing, and our future plans (God willing).
