The purpose of this ministry is to presentisagogical, categorical and exegetical Bible teaching, and to facilitate the distribution of this material through face-to-face teaching, audio cassette tapes, and books and materials required in the teaching of the Word of God as outlined in basic Bible doctrine.
The thrust of this ministry is to make sound doctrine available to believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, to the end that each believer might become spiritually self-sustaining; i.e., "until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature believer, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness, in deceitful scheming." (Ephesians 4:13-14)

For nearly twenty years, Glenhaven has provided long-term, Christian residential placement for young men at risk. It is a place of peace and beauty, isolated from many of the adverse outside influences of the world. As the cattle quietly graze in the pastures, the homes and school are a hub of activity and learning. It is in these settings that young men come to terms with the struggles that each have inside of themselves.
Operation Grace World Missions supports Christian ministries proclaiming the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world. Though each of these ministries are completely independent, they share common values and the goal of accurately presenting the message that God offers eternal salvation to everyone through faith alone in Christ alone.
