Andrew stepped into his current position in 2012. A lover of stories, he is excited to help lead Grace through its theme of helping people discover the extraordinary story each of their lives hold when they follow Jesus. When he's not pastoring a church, you can find Andrew backpacking, cheering for Indiana Hoosier basketball, or maybe even riding a bull. He and his wife Brittanie have three kids.
Coming from Pennsylvania with his wife Bonnie and four kids, Brent joined Grace in 2015 as the strategy and vision overseer. He was attracted to Grace because of its simple yet powerful message and its dedication to the community and ministries. Brent is known as a lover of camping and books, and it is also not uncommon to see him walking around daily with energy drink in hand.
lead student pastor
As lead student pastor, his biggest love is connecting with students and helping them realize their potential and identity as a follower of Jesus. He also enjoys being at Grace for the sense of family and love that seems to encompass everything that happens here. Peter is married to Christy and has three kids. Outside of his role at Grace, he is a skilled unicycle rider, creates stained glass and oil paintings, and more than once has said he would eat Mexican food everyday.
discipleship and teaching
Dan joined the Grace team in 2020 in the middle of a global pandemic...what could possibly go wrong? Passionate about helping people become who God created them to be, Dan is excited to play a part in shaping extraordinary stories at Grace and throughout Central Kentucky. Dan comes to Grace with his wife, Erica, and their three kids by way of Michigan and, before that, upstate New York. A lover of movies, an eater of delicious food, a thrower of frisbees, and a runner of half-marathons-but-not-a-step-further, Dan is up for just about anything if given the opportunity. Except quinoa.
Back when he was in high-school, Josh was asked to play worship music at Grace's student center. From there, he transitioned into playing at the main service, and in 2017 he found himself on staff full-time. In this position, one of his biggest passions is to continue building the atmosphere of worship at Grace, not just outward on the stage but also inward within people. Josh is married to Lori and has three kids. He loves manicuring his beard and playing golf, and one of his dreams is to travel to Australia to visit Hillsong.
Joining the team in 2019, Nancy loves partnering with parents to help kids discover their story in Christ. She has a passion for developing creative, fun ways, such as The Main Course™, that help families bring Jesus into everyday conversations, make memories and grow together. Nancy and her husband, Chris, have three amazing daughters. (She may be biased but has references.) Whether making sculptures, taking photos of snowflakes or the Milky Way, finding items that are red, green, and purple, writing poetry, scripts, or a funny story, being creative and appreciating nature are likely what you will find her doing for fun.
In 2014, Tracy, her husband Paul, and three kids started coming to Grace. They loved the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and Tracy started in a volunteer position in kidzcity. Since then, she has stepped into the position of early childhood coordinator where everyday she helps find ways for kids to understand their own extraordinary stories. Tracy loves everything about being outdoors, whether that be hiking, camping, or being on the water.
