A Message From Pastor Jorge

Dear Friends,

Some of the best learning we can have as church leaders is a combination of inspiration and instruction. We want to invite you to a "come and see" as well as a "come and learn" weekend at Grace Church, a multiple-site, United Methodist Church with five campuses in Southwest Florida (Cape Coral/Fort Myers/Sarasota area). We are unique in that our congregation is made up of working class, working poor and even homeless persons and that our campuses range from very large to very small in size. Chances are, whatever size church you lead, we have the same joys and headaches. Grace Church has grown from 400 to 2700 in worship attendance, from one campus with two worship services to five campuses with ten weekly services. Grace Church has one of the largest and most effective recovery ministries in America as well as a ministry to the poor and marginalized that models the Wesleyan ministry balance of acts of mercy and acts of piety in a contemporary setting. 

During this weekend, you and your team will experience and learn about how Grace Church does five essential things for congregational vitality and health:

  • Build healthy teams
  • Understand unique contexts of ministry
  • Establishes clear focus 
  • Develops fruitful strategies and structures 
  • Get better at making disciples of Jesus. 

You will be given an opportunity to personally experience our recovery and compassion outreach ministries and rub shoulders with the women and men who serve in these ministries. On Friday night, you will worship at Celebrate Recovery. On Saturday morning, your team will experience how Grace Church does outreach that both helps people in need and connects them to a relationship with God. On Sunday morning, you will have an opportunity to worship at several of our campuses.

I hope you will join us!

Jorge Acevedo

Lead Pastor
