Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost

Matthew 28:19

Global Missions exists to take the "whole gospel to the whole world, by the whole church."
Our mission is that every tribe and nation will know the name of Jesus. Through global missions we help plant new churches worldwide and partner with missionaries who are reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.



The Grations, who are Australian by birth, were first appointed as pioneer missionaries to the Solomon Islands, under the UPC of Australia, in 1993. They served for five years and returned to pastor in Australia. In 2002, at the request of Global Missions, they went on the Associate In Missions program as furlough replacements to Papua New Guinea. In 2007 they received their intermediate appointment to Papua New Guinea. After serving nine years there, the Grations were led by God to apply for a change of field. In 2011 they arrived in the island nation of Vanuatu. All of the Grations’ ministry in missions has been to the Melanesian people of these nations. In 2014 the Grations received their career appointment to the nation of Vanuatu. Brother Gration serves as general superintendent of the work in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands. He is area coordinator over the central Pacific area (nine nations) and is blessed to serve as president of two apostolic Bible colleges while acting as senior pastor of the headquarters church in Vanuatu.
