Grace Community Presbyterian Church is governed by a Session, meaning a body of elders nominated, trained, and elected by our church to lead and shepherd this local flock of believers. We praise God for raising up men who are biblically qualified and spiritually gifted to serve, and who long to shepherd the souls of our people! We also have a Diaconate who leads us in tangibly expressing the love of Christ to those in our congregation and in our community, as well as making sure we steward God's resources the best way we can to His glory.
