Pastor Jeff & Nydia Black have been married for over 34 years. They have six adult children and two grandsons. After the Air Force and Bible college, the two of them spent 18 years at Cornerstone Church in Mesa, Arizona, involved in every aspect of ministry under the capable leadership and guidance of Dr. James E. Adams.
In 2007, Jeff stepped away from retail business to actively pursue a pastorate in which to fulfill God’s call. He served two mission organizations in managerial roles while engaged in itinerant preaching and teaching ministries in local churches.
In 2011, Jeff & Nydia became missionaries with Village Missions of Dallas, Oregon. They have served at Grace since 2011. Both are passionate about ministering to the needs of the church body and in the community.

Our Deacons & Bookkeeper
As of December 2, 2018, our voting members elected two deacons, Max Doner and Aric Wardian, to assist in caring for the needs of the body and the maintenance of our church facilities. We also remain very thankful for the positive, hard work that our bookkeeper, Debra Glaser, puts in each week to serve the Lord in the area of church finances.
“It is a day of singular gladness and joy to the heart of Christ when He is united to and received by the believing soul… when poor souls consent to His government over their lives. They do, as it were, crown Him with glory and honor, and make His heart glad.”
