About the Organization:

Grace Church is one non-denominational church worshipping in six local campuses around the neighborhoods of Orlando, with a mission to help people take their next step toward Christ. The Grace model offers its ministry the strength and resources of a larger church but the community and neighborhood feel of a small one. Having each campus equipped with in-person pastors and leaders allows them to connect with people and teach the Bible in ways that speak to each unique community. It also allows the church to resource and train as many next generations leaders as possible for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

What began in a community center in 2003 that expanded into a multisite strategy in 2011, has further maximized into six campuses and a new building with 1,500 people in regular attendance today. Equipped with live expository teaching at each campus, the church continues to draw both believers and the unchurched to propel them into their next step toward Christ through its energetic, engaging, and excellent programming.


  • Weekly Attendance: 1505 (church); 150 (campus)

The Campus Pastor serves as an elder at Grace, responsible for leading and implementing vision at a specific campus. They are tasked with building the launch and lead team that will serve the campus where they lead.
