My wife (Lee) and I have been living here in the North Charleston area now since November of 2022 and are loving the low-country! Having pastored for many years prior in the north central mountains of West Virginia, we are needless to say, enjoying the warmer, snowless climate. Just this morning on my way to the church office from a hospital in West Ashley, I came across a bridge spanning the marshes with their wonderful aroma. I said to myself, “I love that smell!”, then added, “…and I get to live here!”. Most importantly, we have very quickly come to love the Grace Alliance Church family to which we are privileged to be a part.

Allow me a few moments to give you what I believe is, and will become even more so in the future, the “Flavor” of Grace Alliance Church. You can find dates, times, and event details in other parts of this website, but here is a bit about what I believe we desire to become as a community of Christ followers. We desire…


… Transparency

“The quality of allowing light to pass through so that objects behind can be distinctly seen.”

At Grace Alliance Church, we desire to live lives for Jesus Christ in a transparent manner. It is our desire to live life with nothing to hide. As we become deeper followers of Christ, hidden things are exchanged for freedom. None of us are perfect. Truth is, when we share not only our victories but also our flaws, we grow stronger in our faith both individually and as a church family. We truly desire that people see Christ through us rather than ourselves.




… Authenticity

“The quality of being genuine”

The saying, “What you see is what you get”, is truly how we at Grace Alliance desire to live out what we believe. We aren’t going to win you over with amazing coffee, music, or ambience, but rather, a genuine love of Christ and people. We believe in the genuineness of God and His Word, and trust Him to “Win” you over Himself.


… Grace and Truth

“No one condemns you, and neither do I. Go and sin no more.” – Jesus

In the same way the moss blankets this forest floor, so grace and truth cover us in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus spoke the words above to an individual living out sin in that moment. Yet, He did not condemn, but extended grace and at the same time, truth, “Go and sin no more”. This is how we at Grace Alliance believe we are to relate to the world around us; demonstrating the love of Christ through grace and truth.

Grace and Truth

Thank you for taking time to read this and may you especially know the Lord’s leading in the days to come.

Christ’s love, grace and truth,
