Ross & Jennifer Gerber - Senior Pastor
Ross and Jennifer Gerber, and their three children, came to Sturgis in 1987 from the metropolitan area of Toronto, Canada. They had a vision to promote short-term mission trips to foreign countries and to help a new church, called Grace Christian Fellowship, grow into a healthy, prospering congregation. Over the years, they have served as Directors of the children's ministry and the short-term mission's ministry.

Luke began attending Grace Christian Fellowship at age six with his parents when the church started. Luke grew up attending the youth group, serving on the youth and church worship teams and ministering on overseas mission trips. Luke and Amanda began volunteering with the youth ministry after graduating from Michigan State University in 2002. In 2004 they were appointed as the youth leaders to oversee Rush and Surge youth ministries and in 2005 Luke was asked to participate as a member of the church elder/leader team.
Joe & Diane Markus - Elder
Part of the Grace family since 1995, Joe and Diane Markus enjoy the emphasis on the working of the Holy Spirit, the encouragement to grow in our gifts and serving each other, and the focus on worship that characterizes the Grace family.
Justin & Becca Wickey - Elder
Justin was ordained as an elder in the church in 2012 and hired on staff part-time as the Children & Family Life Director. Justin and Becca love people and want to see them grow closer to God. Not through just words but "...with a demonstration of the Spirit's power" (1 Co. 2:4).
Jon & Carissa Yoder - Elder
Jon and Carissa love Jesus and are so happy that He led them to Grace Christian Fellowship! When they walked into their first service in 2007, they felt they had found a home. They love serving, worshiping and experiencing the Holy Spirit, as well as leading the Life Group ministry at GCF.
