Grace BPC began services in 1965 and was organized largely due to the efforts of Elder Ed Schumacher with Albert Cook soon called to be the Pastor. The church began with fewer than 20 members and first met at a Holiday Inn in Sharonville, Ohio. Within a few years God provided an old church building and manse in downtown Sharonville that was owned by the local UAW.
In 1971, the church commissioned its first international missionaries, Darryl and Judy Creamer, from within its growing membership. Darryl, Judy and their children ministered in Israel until 1989. As the congregation grew, property at our current location was purchased and a new and larger building was constructed in 1974.
Continued growth led to the addition of a new education wing which was built in 1984 adding several Sunday school classrooms. The ministry, membership, and staffing continued to grow as the church has focused upon loving God, loving God’s word, and loving God’s people.
As a result of this growth, the current structure was completed in 1994 adding a new sanctuary, gym, nursery, and additional classrooms with the old sanctuary being converted into a fellowship hall. The church desires to use our facility for the glory of God through a host of various ministries and outreaches into the community.
In 2003, after 38 years of faithful service to our church, Pastor Albert Cook retired. Following Pastor Cook, Pastor Timothy Miessler was installed and served our church from 2003 to 2014.
Pastor Jason Hutchinson was installed in March of 2015.
Missions outreach continues to have a vital and growing emphasis as we have an active Missions Committee that meets bi-monthly to encourage missions awareness throughout the ministries of the church. The church has also opened its doors to host the office Presbyterian Missionary Union, which led by our Assistant Pastor, Rev. Casey Southerland, and is currently staffed by members of our congregation.
Currently we support 5 foreign missionaries and 4 US-based missionaries as well as other mission agencies and gospel-promoting organizations.
