Our Ministry Vision

Written by Jon Kopp. Posted in What we are doing


We pray earnestly to our Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest.

“New church planting is the only way that we can be sure we are going to increase the number of believers in a city and one of the best ways to renew the whole Body of Christ. The evidence for this statement is strong–Biblically, sociologically, and historically." - Pastor Tim Keller
“We have exhausted our local church support base for missionaries. We need to plant more churches if we are to continue to send missionaries around the world.” - Dr. David Cummins

Strategic Multiplication

The church is God’s means of displaying His character to a lost and dying world therefore we are committed to investing in reproducing church-planting churches in strategic communities throughout the Salt Lake Valley. We envision this happening through cloning, daughter, and sister church planting relationships.

Leadership Development

If we are to really see the entire city, valley, and state reached with the Gospel, we must have workers and leaders multiplying at every level. We have a vision to develop a Church Planting Center and a City Seminary in the years ahead. This will involve formalized leadership development, theological training in the city, ministry mentoring, and church planting assessment and accountability.

  • Church Planting Center - to assess, train, and send church planters through an internship program.
  • City Seminary - to offer graduate theological education in a cohort model.

Regional Training - Enrich

We see the need and are burdened to provide educational and ministerial training not only to meet our own church development goals, but also to serve church leaders in the Intermountain West. Presently Gospel Grace Church provides three opportunities a year for Church leaders to participate in our Enrich Seminars. The primary focus of Enrich is to equip leaders for healthy church ministry. Secondarily, Enrich serves to connect like-minded ministries so that they are able to partner more strategically.

Strategic Partnerships

Inside the Salt Lake Valley - The mission and the opportunities of the Salt Lake Valley are beyond the capacity of just one church. It is our desire that we would be able to partner with those of like faith and philosophy to spread the Gospel in Salt Lake Valley.

Outside the Salt Lake Valley - Each summer we lead a ministry called Plant Camp (a mission opportunity for partnering churches outside of Salt Lake City). We currently host a combined total of 120 – 150 teens and adults who come to the city for one of the 4 week-long camps. They labor alongside Gospel Grace Church to serve church planting endeavors. Lord willing, as more church plants are launched in the city we could see a facility like this providing a place to house these teams and serve as a hub to facilitate their ministry.
