Let's take a quick look at today as we dream for tomorrow.

The Grace Family of Churches planted Grace Athens in August 2013. Since then, we have experienced amazing fruit & hard transition seasons. In 2018, we find ourselves growing, thriving, and excited for the future. This year has been our most fruitful year to date.

Spiritual Mothers & Fathers

We believe in catalyzing adults to become spiritual mothers and fathers to the next generation. We are not okay with an older generation being on the sidelines. We need their wisdom to form the younger generation into whole, healthy, and thriving kingdom disciples. 

Student Disciple-makers

We believe in raising up the next generation around us to become disciple-makers of Jesus in all spheres of culture. Our impact multiplies to thousands quickly if we make disciple-makers.

Thriving Local church

We believe that to truly be a center and sender, we must have a healthy local church home that can gather and disciple all generations, all ethnicities, all backgrounds. We cannot be a sender, without first being a center.

  2. Resource the Global church with theological content and innovative ideas.

  3. Plant multiple disciple making churches in major university towns.
