Church Governance

Grace Chapel is a congregationally-governed church, led and served by the Board of Elders, who are responsible for providing leadership, guidance, and accountability for the overall ministry of Grace Chapel. This group includes lay leaders who are elected at our Annual Meeting, and our Senior and Executive Pastors.

The 2017 Annual Meeting is scheduled for June 4, 2017, at 12:30pm. This meeting provides an opportunity to hear about what we’ve accomplished over the past 12 months, and exciting plans for the upcoming year.  

The 2016 Annual Meeting took place at 12:30pm on June 5, 2016, at our Lexington Campus, and was live-streamed to our other locations and online. Click here for more information on our Annual Meeting, Annual Report, and Audited Financial Statements.
