Accessing Heaven. Transforming Earth.
We are a movement of Jesus-followers who are very passionate about seeing His Kingdom come to earth – just as it is in heaven! We place a high value on loving Jesus, one another, our city and our world. We don’t gather because we agree on EVERYTHING. We gather around honor and shared values (See ‘Our Values’ below).
Our culture is characterized by PRAYER, WORSHIP, THE PRESENCE, REVIVAL FIRE, MIRACLES, HEALING & DREAMS. You are invited to find your home at GRACE. We are a family and every member is significant. There is room for everyone and your gift is needed in our house. Consider being a part of our tribe! Visit us on a Sunday morning or contact the office to set up a “get to know you,” appointment. We’d be most honored.
Phil & Lisa
Phil and Lisa are honored to be the lead pastors of Grace Fellowship Church. They are passionate about the purpose statement of Grace: Access Heaven, Transform Earth. They love to see individuals embrace this in a way that reflects their own personal passions and abilities.
Phil’s personal mandate is: “To host heaven to dispense physical healing, set captives free, and release salvation and transformation in individual’s lives”. Phil lives from the foundational truth that NOTHING is impossible with God. He releases faith and boldness to live the authentic gospel. He longs to see the people of God fully activated in doing the works of Jesus.
Lisa’s personal mandate; “To release truth that heals; evidenced by freedom and abundant life” is evident in her interactions with people. She is passionate about leading individuals into restored innocence. Lisa’s superpower is HOPE! Believing that God will redeem even the most difficult trials in our lives, she releases hope wherever she goes.
Phil and Lisa have lived in Sonoma County since there college days. Both attended Sonoma State University and met there through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. They married in 1997 and became involved in Grace Fellowship in early 2000. They joined the leadership team in 2005 and then in 2013 Phil was able to become a full-time pastor at Grace. Phil and Lisa have a prophetic-pastoral anointing and are passionate about the local church, increased unity within the body of Christ and the movement of God in the nations.
They are raising their four amazing boys, so life is rarely quiet and never dull! Phil and Lisa are committed to maintaining a healthy marriage and family while laying down their lives to advance the Kingdom in Sonoma County, the nation, and to the nations.

Questions? Comments? Needs? We would love to hear from you.
Our values define and create our culture; who we are and how we relate with each other as a community.
Hosting His Presence
We steward His Manifest Presence, cultivating an increased awareness of His Glory. In fact, we live life under an open heaven pointed towards earth.
We embrace our identity as sons and saints. We believe we are significant to Father God. We are sons, not sinners.
Believing for the Impossible
We believe He is the God of the Impossible. Convinced that nothing is too hard for God, we insist every impossibility yield to His Power.
We Celebrate God
We celebrate Father God’s Goodness, and His delight in us. God’s always in a Good mood towards us!
We Live In His Victory
We operate from a position of Jesus’ absolute Victory (we are not trying to obtain victory). When Jesus said “It is finished,” we believe it! His victory is finished, done, paid for!
Honoring God & People
We embrace The Culture of Honor – valuing others for who they are in the spirit. 2Cor.5:16 Unity of the Spirit is high value to us.
We Honor The Ministry of the Holy Spirit
In this age of God’s dealing with humans, it is the age of the Holy Spirit’s ministry on the planet. (2Cor3:7,8) We believe our Grace Family will be confident in and skilled at the Ministry of the Holy Spirit.
