About Grace Relations Network

The Grace Relations Network is a community of individuals, churches, and ministries that are passionate about applying the grace of God to conversations about race and ethnicity – grace relations, not race relations.

The GRN’s mission is to equip Christians to engage in interracial and multiethnic ministry through:

Encouragement (Ephesians 4:29)

Loving Relationships (John 13:35)

Evangelism & Discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20)

Glorifying God (Matthew 6:9-10)

The GRN seeks to engage in long-term relationships with churches, organizations and individuals by creating a positive, uplifting experience for members and clients that improves their engagement with interracial and unifiying multiethnic conversations and activities. It draws on the international recognition and expertise of Dr. A. Charles Ware, his Grace DREAM materials, and the experience of the faculty of Crossroads Bible College to conduct conferences, consulting, and training.

The GRN engages in key partnerships with experts from Crossroads Bible College, Dream Consulting, Culture Answers and National Leaders to offer the following services:

Community and church forums on race relations
