“It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. Therefore, brethren, select from among you…men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:2-4) We are not a church run and administered completely by our pastors. We are a body of believers serving one another and our community for the glory of Jesus Christ. However, to help guests become familiar with our leadership, some brief introductions are included here. Please know that to contact any of our church staff, you may call the church office at 740/382-6270, or write to them in care of Marion Grace Brethren Church, 2813 Gooding Road, Marion, Ohio, 43302.
