Grace Place Preschool
VISION STATMENT To help prepare each young person to accept God’s purpose for their life and provoke them to pursue that plan with passion; To educate, equip, and engage them in the life-long mission of bringing glory to God. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding; In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
About Grace Place
Our school was established in 2000 as a ministry of Grace Baptist Church under the spiritual and dynamic leadership of our pastor, Dr. Ken Martin. Dr. Martin has been the senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church since 1996. Before becoming Senior Pastor, he served as co-pastor for three years with Dr. Garland Odom in an administrative role. During his years in ministry, Dr. Martin has served churches in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, and Virginia.
In 1999, Dr. Martin led Grace Baptist Church to relocate to Powder Springs in the western suburbs of Atlanta. Dr. Martin was reared in southern Georgia, attended the University of Alabama, and received his training for the ministry at Trinity Baptist College in Jacksonville, Florida.
The church continues to grow and expand its various ministries not only in the community and surrounding areas but globally as well. Established over 35 years ago, Grace Baptist Church seeks to meet the spiritual needs of its members. Our school is part of this endeavor by offering a balanced program to prepare young people for college. Using the Word of God as a foundation for academics, we strive to teach the students to be Christ-like in all areas of their lives. Partnering with parents is vital to this endeavor, and we accept the challenge to help prepare and impact our students for future success in their lives.
Pastor Thomas is the lead Pastor at Grace Baptist Church. He and his wife have served Grace in many capacities over the last 20 years. As head of the ministries on our campus, he believes that God has called Grace Christian Academy to help parents equip their children to develop their God-given talents to glorify the Lord. Through an exceptional academic program and a strong Biblical foundation, he believes that we can teach the whole child, helping them to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually. It is his heart's desire that every student develops a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and impacts the world accordingly.
