Worship Center Stories

Stories from the Worship Center


Things at Grace Avenue have definitely changed over the last 20 years.  The Worship Center was the original building and has seen some of the most drastic changes in both how it is used and how it looks.  Many of the people who worship in this space, particularly those in our new Modern Worship,  don’t know the history of this space and how important it has been to Grace Avenue.

Our Pastor of Modern Worship, Joe Stobaugh, took some time to reminisce and learn from our Lead Pastor, Billy Echols-Richter, who has been here from the beginning.  Billy knows the ins and out and some of the secrets of the Worship Center.
