As we look back on 2019, we are profoundly grateful for all the Lord has done in and through the ministry of Greater Grace World Outreach as a result of your faithful service and giving.
Help expand our mission with a year-end gift.

Pastor Ray Poellot and the Midnight Express team care for the spiritual and physical needs of Baltimore’s homeless. To date, 95 new people have come to church, 53 have received Christ — of those, nine have passed away and 18 have moved out of the woods and come off drugs. The team has distributed 200 blankets, as well as food and toiletries beyond measure. Pray please as a new van is needed to keep the work going strong.
