The Pastor and the church departments implement the various policies, purposes and responsibilities of Grace Missionary Church. Each department is subject to the directives of the Church Council. Directors are appointed by the Pastor, in consultation with the Elders and Deacons, and approved by the Church Council, to head each department.
The Church Council also appoints Assistant Directors, but each Department effects its organization and programme, consistent with GMC’s doctrine, policies and purposes. These persons are appointed or elected from the Membership of the church.
If you are interested in serving in one of these departments, please complete the Grace Connect Card on our Membership page and someone will be in touch with you.
