A Message from our Lead Pastor

Grace Family Church is people helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Because of your generosity in 2016, we have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands of people in the Tampa Bay area at our campuses on Van Dyke Road, Waters Avenue, Temple Terrace Highway, in South Tampa and in Ybor City. Due to your faithful giving in 2016, we opened the South Tampa Campus located on Gandy Boulevard.

In 2016, lives were changed through giving their lives to Jesus Christ, through water baptism, serving in ministry and in the community, participating in small groups and attending weekend services. In this annual report, we want to share with you the various areas and ways the Gospel has been shared in Tampa, Florida and globally.

God is doing great things here at Grace Family Church, made possible only through your giving.

Sincerely,
Craig Altman
Lead Pastor
Grace Family Church
