A unifying support system

for pastors and boards

of Grace churches

Healthy Pastors

The role of pastor is a sacred and weighty calling. Our goal is to support pastors; equipping them to serve and lead with confidence, knowing that they are cared for by their board, congregation, and the Grace Gospel Fellowship.

Healthy Boards

Board members bear many responsibilities in life as they also serve their church communities. GGF provides support and guidance to board members, knowing that a healthy board is an incredibly integral part of a healthy church.

Healthy Churches

In a healthy church, lives are changed, communities are served, marriages strengthened, life-on-life ministry takes place, and people grow closer to Jesus Christ. It takes a healthy pastor and healthy board to grow a healthy church in these ways.

No one should have to navigate church leadership alone

As churches and church leadership labor day-in and day-out, to be the hands and feet of Christ, they should not feel alone. Too often, pastors feel isolated and burnt out. Boards feel ill-equipped to do the important work before them. Churches feel like they lack resources and aren’t sure where to go for advice in ministry. The Grace Gospel Fellowship is here to equip and support pastors, boards, and churches by providing a support system that protects and advances the collective of Grace churches in the U.S.

The 2023 reFresh Conference saw widespread participation from pastors and key stakeholders of the GGF from around the country. We are so grateful for those who were able to invest in this formative time together and we look forward to seeing continued growth at our 2024 reFresh Conference.

How has GGF helped churches around the U.S.?

Read true stories of the GGF impact in these churches.

Pastor Joe Johnson - Parkside Bible Church, Holland MI

“The Grace Gospel Fellowship is deeply committed to Pastors. In the letter to the Phillipians, Paul puts his full support behind Timothy, who is “genuinely concerned for your well being.” I give that same recommendation of Bryan Walker and his team. They’ll do whatever it takes to support you in ministry and keep you whole.”

Pastor Kaleb Kemper - Eastport Bible Church, Eastport NY

The GGF has worked alongside me during my college days, in my placement into a Grace church, and through the challenges and joys of pastoral ministry over the years. The Leadership Conferences have encouraged and challenged me, both on a personal and leadership level, and reminded me that I am part of a movement. I am grateful for the network of churches and leaders I can reach out to for advice, best practices, and diverse ministry models to adapt for our unique church context. At times I feel like I am working alone, but the GGF reminds me that there are many others facing these challenges with faithful service to a worthy cause of eternal significance.”
