We are pleased to welcome Marty Bruns to the elder team here at Grace! Marty has been heavily involved in many activities of the church for a number of years, and he has been particularly active in our Men’s Ministry.
After a careful process, we are confident that God has called and equipped him to serve the church body as an elder. Marty was unanimously put forward by both the current elder team and the elder selection team, and he was affirmed by the church body during our worship service on July 9th.
Listen to Marty give his testimony:
We invite you to pray regularly for Marty and all of the elders of Grace, as they have been entrusted as overseers, or shepherds, of the church (Acts 20:28). They have the responsibility of providing leadership in the church, and your prayers for wisdom and guidance are vitally important.
