Grace Staff

Grace Church is staffed by enthusiastic and dedicated followers of Christ! Each of our team members has answered the call to glorify God through their ministry at Grace Church. Not only has the Lord equipped these Gracers to lead our ministry, but He has also empowered them to equip the Grace Church congregation in serving these ministries as well!

    MINISTER OF SOUND - clark '84

    Lance is by far the coolest guy on staff. He runs the sound board and makes our band sound even better than they are. Lance loves riding his Harley, rocking out to 80's heavy metal (Metallica rulz!), and eating Mexican food. He is married to Elizabeth, our amazing pianist, and they have a son you will see with him at the sound board on Sundays.

    His favorite questions is: Is that loud enough?

The Vestry is the group of elected laypeople who help lead Grace. They make decisions, create the vision, approve the budget, and serve the people of Grace.  With members from varying backgrounds and experiences, our Vestry exists to help every person who walks through our doors feel welcome and help every voice that speaks to be heard.

Sunday Team Leaders

Our Sunday Teams help make worship happen. They serve on Sundays to prepare, welcome, and lead us in worship. They work behind the scenes and up in front. Most team members serve about once-a-month, and we literally could not do worship without them. Sunday Teams are a great way to get to know people and an even better way to live our your Faith.
