What is GraceNet?

GraceNet serves churches. We provide research, coaching and consulting in the effective spiritual leadership of new and revitalizing congregations.

Martha Grace Reese, President, is currently directing a major grant funded by the Lilly Endowment to support and study faith development, faith sharing and congregational transformation in 500+ mainline churches, using the Unbinding the Gospel Series. Participant congregations and pastors help research cutting edge dynamics of congregational transformation and leadership (the Series' focus). Contact us to see about being part of this exciting research.
