“To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder, a witness of Christ’s sufferings and one who will also share in the glory to be revealed; Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers – not because you must, because you are willing, as God wants you to be…being examples to the flock.”  1 Peter 5:1-4


God has called elders, shepherds, and overseers to give oversight to the local body of believers. These are not separate offices but descriptions of the task that must be fulfilled to provide care for the body of believers. Care and oversight is given so that we all together might be conformed into the image of Christ and that we might all fulfill our destiny as a priesthood of believers.

Grace Fellowship is served by Ken Kraft, Don Jessen, Floyd Lien, Joseph Joiner, Michael Trowbrdiges, and Gregg Smith. The Eldership serves “to prepare the body of Christ for works of service so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach the unity in the faith and the knowledge of the Son of god and become mature attaining the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12).

Gregg Smith serves in the dual roles of Pastor, and Elder of preaching and teaching.
