Redeeming and rewriting our stories through the eyes of grace
Liz is a certified trainer in the Healing from the Wounds of Trauma Course developed by the American Bible Society.
Bob and Liz cherish, most of all, their personal experience with 34 years of marriage and family life, and the relevance it can have in their service to others. “Raising five children has set us on our own journey of imparting and receiving grace. We have a special passion to teach what it means to put Grace Eyes on our marriages and on parenting.
Grace Eyes is not a study center, but a portable ministry built upon personal connection, experiencing the work of our Triune God, and beginning to walk out of that experience in community with others.
What we believe:
Grace Eyes Ministries serves everyone. There is no statement of faith or commitment required of anyone we serve.
As a ministry that serves in both the USA and Zimbabwe, and hopes to expand to other countries, our board, advisors, and major ministry partners can endorse the Lausanne International Ministry Covenant as a statement of faith and practice. We also confess what are often called the ecumenical creeds; the Nicene Creed, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Chalcedon Creed. These statements encourage us to focus more on what unites believers in Christ than what divides us.
Grace Eyes Ministries is also committed to social justice in all areas of life. In particular, we are committed to walking in racial solidarity as friends and allies in pursuing racial justice as a necessary part of discipleship and the outworking of the gospel. Sadly, there is whole area of racial trauma that must be owned and addressed by the white evangelical church.
Because “justice is what love looks like in public”, at its essence justice is simply about removing what is opposed to love. Rediscipling the White Church by David Swanson is a helpful starting point from a pastor who lives that title out boldly and wisely.
Putting Grace Eyes on the brokenness of the world will not allow us to remain silently complicit as bystanders.
Grace Eyes Ministries also has a Council of Advisors, who give counsel, input, and endorsement of this ministry.
Our Council of Advisors includes:
Dr. and Mrs. Jeph and Kudzi Chifamba
Pastor Peter Kanetsa
Pastor Tsitsi Kanetsa
