Meet the Pastor and the Grace Church Team

Our leadership team is passionate about serving God, Grace Church, and the community of Warren! We strive to follow God in all things, and we desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip believers for the work of ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

She is currently pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Music Education at the University of Mount Union. We are blessed to have her ministering to us through the end of June 2022.
