Ministry Teams

We have no committees at Grace Church. Committees meet and talk and waste everyone's time. Instead, we have teams. 

Teams work together to accomplish a goal. Every team at Grace has a purpose, a leader, and a job description. 

Teams are the strategy we employ to carry out our mission and ministry.

  • Pastoral care TEAM

    Led by LISA DEHART

    Our Pastoral Care Team consists of trained Community of Hope lay chaplains. Their mission is to visit the sick, befriend the lonely, and care for the dying. They walk with people through difficult times and love them through it all. If you would like to receive a visit from a lay chaplain, please email Lisa DeHart.


  • Fellowship TEAM

    Led by KERRY GREEN

    Our Fellowship Team plans, coordinates, and hosts all of the fellowship events at Grace. If you like hosting parties, then you might want to join this team. They have a lot of fun working together. Find out what our upcoming Fellowship Events are on our Calendar Page. Or email Kerry Green for more info.


  • FNW stewardship TEAM

    Led by BILL CRUSETOM HERON

    At Grace Church, we believe stewardship is a thankful response to God for and from all that God has given us. Money is part of it, but stewardship is more about the giver than the gift. The Stewardship Team is a newly forming team which will plan and oversee our annual stewardship campaign each Fall. 


  • story groups

    Led by JAY GEORGE

    Story Groups are the Grace Church version of small groups. You can find out more about them on the Story Groups page. Our Story Group leaders form the team that guides and oversees all of our Story Groups. If you are interested in hosting a Story Group, please contact Father Jay.


  • vestry

    Led by Sr. Warden,  BILL CRUSE

    The Vestry is a group of nine lay people elected by the members of Grace to work with Father Jay to lead the church. Elections are held annually at the parish meeting in January. The Vestry is charged with both temporal and spiritual leadership of the congregation. They meet monthly to carry out their mission. 


  • audit TEAM

    Led by Treasurer, MELANIE GEIST

    The Audit Team meets annually to review and audit the books, accounting practices, and financial procedures of Grace Church. As the Treasurer, Melanie is not part of the audit team, but she gathers the team and sets them to work. Their mission is to insure that Grace Church finances are sound and transparent.


  • prayer team

    Led by TAMMY NICHOLSON

    The Prayer Team at Grace prays regularly for our community and our leaders. They also pray for specific requests given by individuals. If you are a praying person and would like to join the Prayer Team, or if you have a specific request for which you desire prayer, please contact Tammy Nicholson.


  • sabbatical team

    Led by DIANA MAMORI and ROBBY TURNER

    Grace Church plans to hold a sabbatical for Fr. Jay and the church community in the Spring/Summer of 2020. This team has been working towards this for over a year. The Sabbatical will be a time of rest and refreshment for Fr. Jay and his family. It will also be a time of invigoration and renewal for Grace.


  • grill masters

    Led by RON OURS

    Y'all like to eat? We like to eat! And when we eat together, we're usually grilling something. We're more beer & barbecue than champagne & caviar. If shooting the breeze while standing over a hot grill is your idea of fun, then this might be the team for you. Contact Ron Ours to find out when you can help us burn some meat.


  • mowing

    Led by APRIL GUTCHESS

    You know that verse, Isaiah 40:8, that says "the grass withers and the flowers fade"? Well that grass doesn't wither at GraceLand. We have to cut it. Mowing our multiple acres takes about 10 hours, so we rely on a team to do it. If you like running a riding mower, then we need you on this team. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP!
