About Grace Christian Fellowship:
Grace was established in 1995 and celebrated our 25th anniversary in October 2020. Grace is an incredibly loving and gracious church family. One of the things that makes Grace so special is the sense of family. People often communicate to us how they instantly feel welcomed and valued when they first visit.

In November of 2020, we completed a new children’s wing. In the last 5 years, we have also built a new office space and a youth facility. In March of 2021, we became debt free.
Grace is located in a part of Odessa that is quickly developing and growing. We own a total of 9 acres which will be helpful as our church continues to grow and as we add on to our facility in the years to come.
We run a full-time, state-licensed daycare in our children’s ministry area during the week called Grace Kids Learning Center. This program is an incredible ministry opportunity to our community.
We are excited about what God has in store for our church in the years to come and excited to see who God has in store to lead in Children’s Ministry in the next chapter of our story.
