Grace Community Church has partnered with The Master’s Seminary for a quarter century for the express purpose of providing a context where men can learn the requisite skills for pastoral ministry. The recent explosion of developing churches, however, has created a demand for an additional level of preparation and training for men to lead these local assemblies. Through Grace Advance Academy, it is our desire to serve the obvious moving of the Holy Spirit in this endeavor. We are compelled to this undertaking by the need to fulfill the scriptural model of Titus 1:5—to set churches in order through the appointment of godly leadership. Our goal is not simply to plant churches at our own discretion. Rather, our passion is to prepare men to become pastors of a new wave of churches that the Lord is raising up around the world. He has promised to build His church (Matt 16:18), and it is our responsibility to remain sensitive to His leading. Grace Church desires to serve developing churches in the body of Christ by providing leadership committed to biblical principles of ministry. Grace Advance Academy has been formed for the purpose of meeting this need.
