Grace Fellowship began in the heart of God. He knows the plans that He has for us–plans on His heart from the beginning of time. While still in seminary, God placed a dream in the heart of Pastor Rex Keener for a dynamic local church. In the fall of 1992, the dream began to take shape. Five men went away for a weekend of prayer and fasting to seek God about the start of a new congregation in the Capital Region. Out of that prayer vigil came the resolve to launch a local church that would officially open on Sunday, March 21, 1993.
God has truly blessed this work, and the church that came from those humble beginnings has blossomed into our Latham campus, where we now see nearly 2,500 people walk through our doors each weekend.
After much prayer for wisdom and direction, God has lead us to adopt a multi-site model. On December 7, 2008, we opened our second full service campus in the town of Halfmoon, led by Campus Pastor, Justin Yim. We’re looking forward to the launch of two new Grace Fellowship campuses in the Capital Region in 2013. The first will be in East Greenbush, and the second will be in Saratoga Springs. Please pray for the teams that are coming together and working toward these goals. It is our most passionate desire that by using this method, we will continue to reach this growing region for Christ.
