WHO IS GRACE PLACE?Grace Place is a community of love, acceptance, and forgiveness located in Berthoud, Colorado. Lead pastor Clay Peck founded the church in the fall of 1996, targeting the “burned, bored, and bypassed.”  The church is known for a strong gospel focus; educational and relevant Bible teaching; fostering a thinking environmentwhere there is unity around the “main thing” with room to disagree on secondary issues; vibrant worship; a seven-­‐day-­‐a-­‐week ministry; hospitality, including a popular commercial restaurant; genuine friendly culture, an unassuming (not “churchy”) environment; honesty, vulnerability, and authenticity; a high percentage of families with children; solid biblical content for children; creative student ministry; strong men’s and women’s ministry; significant community presence and missions impact; pastoral care and prayer support; adoption and orphan care; serving the poor—especially little ones in need; Thursday night worship option (with meal), afterschool outreach, and recovery ministry.  During the first five years Grace Place met in rented facilities, moving into the current building twelve years ago. The church grew rapidly and steadily in the early years but has plateaued at around 1000 attenders in recent years due to spaceconstraints. Grace Place is currently in a re.IMAGINE relocation campaign preparing to build a new campus on 19 acres positioned strategically on the 287 by-­‐pass, the west entrance of Berthoud and a short drive from Loveland and Longmont.  Grace Place has been a nondenominational church, affirming the Statement of Faith of the National Association of Evangelicals.
