A Message From Our Pastors
We are honored that you chose to visit our website. Thank you for taking the time to know us better.
Grace Fellowship Church began in a home with six people in 2001. We quickly outgrew the house and began meeting at the YMCA. When we outgrew that, we moved into our present facility, where we have experienced consistent growth numerically and spiritually.
We have been in the ministry for more than 25 years. We have a heart to minister to God’s people and love to serve the Lord together as a team. We share a passion to pastor, preach, teach, counsel, mentor and serve the body of Christ. And we are committed to the mission of Grace Fellowship Church: loving God and loving people.
We have been married for 35 years and have two children and five grandchildren.
At Grace, we have a kingdom mentality. We believe that the body of Christ is one church composed of many congregations with different emphases. This is God's way of reaching different people. We started GFC with several distinctives in mind. We desired to be:
- A Spirit-filled Church - which means we believe that the gifts of the Spirit are for today. We desire to experience the manifest presence of God, so we expect the Holy Spirit to move freely in our services.
- A Contemporary Church - that means our worship style is based on contemporary worship songs. We do sing some hymns, but our basic style is contemporary with some gospel songs.
- A Multi-Ethnic Church - which means we have a huge vision for diversity. We desire to reach all people groups and all generations with the love of Christ.
All these things are visionary in nature, which means we aren't perfect in them, but we are continually growing in each of these areas. Our prayer is that you will experience the presence of God, the power of God and the love of God's people every time you attend Grace Fellowship Church.
In Grace and Love,
Pastors Joe and Deborah
