Grace Lutheran Church
An outreach ministry to the Vietnamese people in Orange County, this congregation has as its mission to “Invite others to follow Jesus lovingly, and to serve and share life together through the power of the Holy Spirit in the US and Viet Nam.” Led by Bishop Vanson Tran of the Lutheran Church of Viet Nam, Grace reaches out through worship services in Vietnamese. Televised in Orange County twice weekly, these services potentially reach 12,000 households. The congregation also supports the Bible-training and the translation of the Lutheran Confessions into Vietnamese. A congregation of the NALC, Grace receives mission support from both the NALC and from some of its congregations, and from the ELCA. The Ministry and Mission Standards team has reviewed its financials, but no current audit is in place.
