Andrew Leasure has been named to succeed Steve Taylor, longtime pastor at Grace Church, a Grace Brethren congregation in Aiken, S.C. Taylor has served at the church for 41 years and has shifted into active retirement.
Andrew will begin his ministry effective March 26 and will be joined by his wife Katty, and their three children: Noah, Iliana, and Kataleya.
He is a native of Hagerstown, Md. After actively serving as a layperson while earning a living in the business world, God’s calling to full-time ministry became clear to Andrew. He packed up his family, moved to Winona Lake, Ind., and pursued his Masters of Divinity degree in Pastoral Studies at Grace Theological Seminary.
Pastor Andrew comes prepared with a shepherd’s heart to lead our fellowship forward according to God’s will, and we are blessed by his appointment to the Senior Pastor position.
Andrew will join the current pastoral team, Don Soule and Chad Parker.
