Through much prayer and discernment, the leadership team began discussing the future of Grace in detail in August 2020 based on feedback solicited from the Covenant Community.
We discussed a variety of potential options for Grace Church to thrive as it moves into the future of a post-pandemic world. In the fall, we added key staff members and volunteers to engage in conversations with the Unstuck Group. From Unstuck's website, “We help pastors lead thriving churches by coaching them to focus vision, strategy, team and action. With every tool and consulting process for churches we develop, our priority is to help churches help people meet and follow Jesus.”
In January of 2021, we arrived at consensus that this is the very-best path forward for Grace Church to not just survive, but thrive, in the future.
