Welcome to the charitable foundation Ministries of Grace

Dear guest: the English version of our website is still under construction. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The charitable foundation Ministries of Grace is the result of a vision God gave Nicole and Markus Rippin about 20 years ago: to preach the endless love of Jesus Christ.

This vision is based on Isaiah 61, 1-3:

61,1 The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has send me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound. 61,2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn. 61,3 To grant to those who mourn in Zion - to give them an ornament of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit - that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

We pray that the contents of our website may inspire and bless you. 

Since November 2013, Ministries of Grace is a charitable foundation. We took this step of faith in order to be able to issue donation certificates for those who want to support our ministry with a gift. The statutes that describe the overall vision of the foundation as well as actual and forthcoming projects can be downloaded here.
