In the spring of 2009, Sovereign Grace Church of Gilbert, AZ sent out 30 members from their congregation to the West Valley for the start of Grace Church. It was a bittersweet Sunday as we genuinely loved the fellowship we possessed, but it was thrilling for the sake of the mission to which we were called.
As families relocated to the Northwest Valley, we began meeting in the Daukas house for our Sunday Gatherings and times of training. God blessed us with some new families over the summer and we officially publicly launched the church on August 30th, 2009 at the Rio Vista Recreation Center. We met on Sundays at 4pm for a over a year until God opened up the door for us to move to Sunday mornings at Copper Creek Elementary School. We moved in the fall of 2014 to Glendale Prep Academy where we currently call home.
We are affiliated with The Gospel Coalition Arizona. Chris sits on the general council for TGCAZ and we are regular participants in conferences, pastor’s lunches, and other associated ministries. We have experienced the warm of the body of Christ across the state and nation through like-minded partners in the gospel. We are grateful to have partnerships like these as we seek to fulfill God’s mission for our church!
Note: As of March 1, 2019, Grace Church is no longer a member of Sovereign Grace Churches.
