Who we Are

Grace Summit Church is a newer church in the northwest Fort Wayne area. Larry Goodwin has had the experience of helping create churches throughout northeast Indiana and Nashville, TN. He was given a vision to create a new church based on real people serving a relevant God, and all about seeing life change. It has been on his heart for years to create a culturally relevant church in Fort Wayne, so in September 2010 Larry assembled a team around him. For approximately six months, they worked on the culture of Grace Summit Church. After securing a location at Oak View Elementary School and discussing the logistics of being a portable church, the team had a pretty good idea of the direction in which God was leading them. In March 2011, they encouraged as many people as possible to come and hear the vision of this new church plant. On Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 10 AM, the very first service of Grace Summit Church was held. After two and a half years at Oak View Elementary, growth of the church was evident and leadership felt it was time to look for a bigger venue. It was a bittersweet time to say goodbye to Oak View; however, God opened the doors for GSC to continue their ministry at Manchester University, Fort Wayne Campus. The univeristy is equipped with a state of the art auditorium with theater seating, along with a lounge that will provide a live-feed video of the service. On November 17, 2013, Grace Summit launched at Manchester University with two services to choose from: 9:30 AM & 11:15 AM. We are still excited and cannot wait to see where God is leading us in the beautiful city of Fort Wayne, IN. We are thrilled about the foundation that we have as a church. We are real people serving a relevant God and all about seeing life change!
