Our Story

We were founded as Ocala Grace Brethren Church in 1984. God did some marvelous things in the years that followed and we are so grateful for His faithfulness and overwhelming kindness to us. His faithfulness took a surprising turn when He brought us into hardship with leadership and finances. 

Through all of this, we became a northern campus of Grace Church of Sebring in 2010 and the leaders there began praying that God would raise up new men to lead our congregation. Under the direction of Dr. Randy Smith and spearheaded by the administrative passion of Pastor Matt Wheelock, the church family in Sebring began working hard to equip this body. They not only assumed the financial responsibilities for the congregation, but also illustrated an equipping model of ministry.

In the summer of 2013, Todd McQueen and his wife Deb accepted God's call to form a team to lead the church to become a healthy light to the community of Ocala. Over the next year, several families also answered God's call including associate pastors Ryan Gagnon and Michael Lockstampfor (see our About Us for more information). 

On September 7, 2014 Grace Church of Ocala officially relaunched and has buttoned down to answer God's call to make disciples who make disciples in Ocala, FL.
