PASTORAL SEARCH

Grace Bible Church is seeking a man of God's choosing to replace our current pastor who is currently planning

to retire toward the end of 2021. It is our desire to call (hire) the next pastor as an Associate Pastor

to work with our current pastor and then to take his place when he retires.


Paul Peabody is our current pastor. 

He came to Grace Bible Church 27 years ago in January of 1993. 

The church has grown to about double during his time here (from 150 to 300+). 

The church body is characterized by great fellowship, joy in the Lord, and mutual acceptance. 

It is our desire to maintain that joy, acceptance, and fellowship through the pastoral change.

For that reason, the Elder Board at Grace Bible Church has chosen to call the next pastor before Paul's retirement. 

We desire to effect a smooth, gradual handoff of the ministry from Paul to the next pastor.
