Time of Grace Ambassadors
The mission of Time of Grace Ministry is to share the good news of Jesus the Christ with as many people as possible through the most innovative means possible. Flowing from that mission, Time of Grace Ambassadors exists to enlist and empower the friends and partners of Time of Grace to join Jesus on his mission within their local community.
The success of Ambassadors depends on each Ambassador being compelled by the love of Christ to live Christ’s love towards each other and our neighbors, striving to do what our God commands. Success will be realized when every Ambassador moves to action to reach members of their community using the straight talk of Time of Grace to offer their neighbors the real hope of Jesus Christ. This will produce spiritual renewal one person at a time. Success of Ambassadors means a new way of reaching people in our communities, country, and ultimately our world (2 Co 5:14-17 and Matt. 22:37-39).

The way people connect has changed. Communities and the people within them are becoming increasingly unique and amazingly diverse. We need to adapt how we interact with those around us to show that we value them and care. Then, when we speak the life-giving Word of God, our neighbors will feel understood and be more willing to listen. We want to become all things to all people (1 Co 9:22) and be prepared to speak in gentleness and respect about the hope we have (1 Pe 3:15). Time of Grace Ambassadors will share the good news of Jesus in every way possible with as many as possible in order for the most to be saved!
