Grace Evangelical Free Church began in 1985 with a small group of people meeting for Bible study who shared a common vision to establish a vibrant evangelical church in eastern Jefferson County. We began to grow and were incorporated as a church in 1987. Dale Anderson was called to be our first pastor and continued in this capacity until the Fall of 2002.
Mike Maggard was the Senior Pastor of Grace from 2003 through May of 2011, leading the church through a season of growth and helping to plant Faith Community Church in Prospect, KY. Mike retired from a career as an intelligence officer in the US Army before sensing God's call to vocational ministry. In 2011 he and his wife, Kathi, left to work with ReachGlobal, the missionary arm of the Evangelical Free Church.
Darin Anderson began at Grace as an associate pastor in 2009 to help build our family ministries. Darin became the senior pastor in 2011 and served in that capacity until August 2014.
Matt Sees, our current pastor, joined us from First Evangelical Free Church in Ft Dodge, IA, as Interim Pastor in January 2015 and became our Senior Pastor on June 1, 2015. He graduated with his M.Div from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May, 2015.
