Who we are
Grace Church is a life-giving non-denominational church, seeking to connect people together and make our community a better place, but we’re ultimately built on one thing: Jesus. We are a family of imperfect people who place our hope in Jesus and his grace, and we simply want people all over Melbourne, Palm Bay, and the Space Coast to experience that same freedom.
Our vision is to:
•Impact the community
•Connect people through relationships
•Lead a Christ-centered life
We're here to help you find your next step in following Jesus and becoming the best version of you!
Where we come from
Grace Church began in 2010, when our lead pastors, Aaron and Nicole Olinski, felt a calling from God to return to the Space Coast and reach the people here. The Olinskis were in ministry in Brevard County for several years after graduating from Oral Roberts University - Nicole was a Childrens Director for four years while Aaron served in student ministry for six years.
In 2005, they moved to Jacksonville, Florida to help plant OakLeaf Christian Fellowship under the leadership of Pastor Jeff & Carol Henderson. Five years later, OakLeaf sent the Olinskis to plant Grace Church through ARC, or the Association of Related Churches, and the rest is history! After meeting in the Olinskis' home and then in the Roxy Cinema in Palm Bay, Grace Church moved to its current home at Cinemaworld.
Over the past ten years, we've seen lives changed and freedom experienced by so many people because of what Jesus has done at Grace Church!
Where we're headed
We remain committed to our vision to impact the community, to connect people through relationships, and to see all people lead a Christ-centered life. We’re praying and working hard to see the hope of Christ change many more lives across Melbourne, West Melbourne, Palm Bay, Viera, Satellite Beach, and the rest of Brevard County and the Space Coast!
In 2017, we purchased 8 acres of land on Minton Road, just south of 192, and we are so excited about our future facility! We believe God has called Grace Church to make an impact on the community, so we’re currently fundraising, planning, and dreaming of all that God has in store for us in our permanent location, as we build a legacy here on the Space Coast.
