The church desires to have a balanced ministry emphasis of reaching the un-churched, growing Christ-followers, equipping Christ-followers to actively minister, and developing leaders to own the various ministry segments. There are 80 individuals who call Grace Fellowship their church and they  desire to further impact many others in the area. The church is very open to considering developing other campuses as the ministry grows. The Kids’ Ministry and the Youth Ministry reach many kids and students from the area and are excellent!
