Over twenty-five years ago, Pastor Gary Brown had a dream to start a church in Georgetown, KY that would point hurting and broken people to something so much bigger than their reality...Jesus Christ. At that time Gary and his wife Marcia along with their three small children, Corrie, Andrew and Erin were living in Louisiana where Gary pastored a church. With much prayer and little money in their pockets, the Brown family set out for the Bluegrass to accomplish this big dream in their hearts.
In January of 1987, Grace Christian launched its first service with a small group of only three people. Grace had many locations over the next several years including hospital rooms and store fronts but due to the rapidly increasing growth of the church, Grace Christian was finally able to purchase a permanent home. However, after ten years on Gano Avenue, it was evident that this facility was not a permanent solution as the congregation outgrew this building as well. So the search began, once again, for a more permanent home.
In 1995 Grace was able to purchase 62 acres complete with a tobacco barn right off of US 25. The tobacco barn was converted into a temporary meeting place as the main building began to take shape. In October of 1999 the first service of the newly completed Grace Christian Church was held.
Twenty-five years later the dream that God placed in one family has now become the vision of many people who all share the same common interest…pointing the hurting and the broken to Christ.
