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.
“The wicked is a very coward, and is afraid of everything; of God, because He is his enemy; of Satan, because he is his tormentor; of God’s creatures, because they, joining with their Maker, fight against him; of himself, because he bears about with him his own accuser and executioner.
The godly man, on the contrary, is afraid of nothing; not of God, because he knows Him as his best Friend, who will not hurt him; not of Satan, because he cannot hurt him; not of afflictions, because he knows they come from a loving God, and end in his good; not of the creatures, since ‘the very stones in the field are in league with Him;’ not of himself, since his conscience is at peace.”
