Why We Love This Opportunity *
God has given the leadership of Grace Fellowship a vision that will carry them into the year 2020 and beyond. This vision will require people to take steps—move to deeper levels of faith, commitment, surrender and devotion to God and to their mission of glorifying Him by making more and better disciples.
Church or Org Description *
Grace Fellowship is a four-campus multisite church located in one of America’s greatest mission fields—the Capital District of New York State. The staff of Grace is serious about their mission to make “every member a minister,” giving ministry away so that a congregation of 3,000 can have radical impact on the metro region around Albany. In 2019 the city was named again as one of America’s top post-Christian cities, and you can see the effect of the Gospel in any of Grace’s many small groups or weekend services. The 80-person staff team of Grace is committed to “making more and better disciples” for the glory of God in the spiritually hungry Northeast.
Grace Fellowship’s campuses stretch around the city of Albany, full of 400 years of rich history, as one of America’s oldest cities. With a population of 1.1 million in the metro area, Albany is known for its culture, architecture and university presence. The city sits on the west bank of the Hudson River, about two hours north of New York City, just over two hours west of Boston, and 30 miles from the New England border.
