One of Grace’s developing city partners is SEEDnet. SEEDnet is a church planting movement that specifically plants churches among” the least of these.” They go into cities reaching out the people in low-income neighborhoods with the story and love of Jesus.

SEEDnet targets people with the following needs:

Spiritually – Where the Gospel needs to be proclaimed
Emotionally – Where people are hurting
Economically – Where poverty is prevalent
Developmentally – Where social structures need help

SEEDnet works to establish God’s Kingdom Rule by following in Jesus’ footsteps in Luke 4:18-19.



SEEDnet has monetary and physical ways that individuals, families, and life groups can contribute to the work they are doing in Cleveland, Detroit, and Appalachia. To learn how you can contribute to SEEDnet click here scroll to the very bottom of their website.

Opportunities to Serve

SEEDnet has four main pastors who go to various communities to meet people, pray with them, evangelize, and find a Person of Peace (POP). After finding a Person of Peace in each community they begin to establish a church through that person.

Currently there are two ways to serve:

  1. Meet with one of the Pastors and pursue prayer walking and evangelizing alongside the pastors and the person of peace.
  2. Take part in a community outreach event with your life group or family!
