At Grace Church we are committed to plant 100 new churches or campuses by 2036. We are excited for this new journey we are on and we invite you to take part in it. We have recently started a church planting network & a church planting residency all designed to train and equip those with a heart to plant churches. In the meantime, if you have any questions about church planting, our network, or our residency, please reach out – we would love to chat with you!

A multi-site church is one church in multiple locations. It enables us to plant the church in new areas with the support, resourcing, and infrastructure of an established church.
An independent church plant is a group of people who leave a church to go plant a brand new church. Independent church plants have their own pastor, their own board, their own branding, and their own budget (with some financial help from the “sending” church). They are a new entity.
A multi-site campus is more like a branch of Grace Church with the same name, same logo, same senior pastor, same board, same ministry style, and same vision for the future.
Our vision has always been about disciple-making. Grace models itself after the outward-focused church in Antioch (Acts 11, Acts 13). For the next season of making disciples, our strategy will be church planting. By planting churches, we can make more disciples (Matthew 28). Church plants are typically 6-8 times more evangelistically effective than existing churches.
God is prompting Grace to move forward with both independent church plants and multi-site campuses. We have been praying together as a team (Acts 13:1-4O) and are sensing that this is what God wants us to do (Proverbs 24:6O).
The Campus Pastor is the key leader of the campus. He oversees the ministries at the campus and shepherds the people who worship and serve there.
Yes, Grace Church will be staffing the site with the equivalent of three and a half full-time employees. Some roles will be part time and some will be full time
Worship will be led by a live band and in the same style as that of the existing site. Messages at the new site will be predominantly delivered by video.
