Grace Pastors Fellowship (GPF)

Grace Pastors Fellowship is a ministry to pastors of local churches. Everything from the papers to the Q&A sessions to the fellowship inbetween is geared at serving and connecting them.

We want as many pastors as possible to be able to come. To that end, the meetings are free and there is no denominational affiliation required.

Originally called The Fellowship for Reformed and Pastoral Studies (FRPS), the name was changed to Grace Pastors Fellowship (GPF) in 2008, after 40 years. These meetings are not your average ministerial or denominational strategy session. Rather, they are a time of personal development, prayer, networking and growth in the gospel.

What if you're not a pastor? We'd still love for you to come! If you're in ministry of any sort, or even if you just love the Word of God and desire to study it more, please join us.

10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

“The ministerial work must be carried on purely for God and the salvation of souls, not for any private ends of our own.”

Richard Baxter, The Reformed Pastor

“Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.”

2 Timothy 2:21, ESV

“Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood.”

Acts 20:28 (ESV)
