Our Story

Grace Foothills grew out of a core group of people who love their community of Tryon, Columbus, Saluda, Landrum, Green Creek, Mill Spring and everywhere in-between (the Foothills). These folks were all attending a church up the mountain in the South Asheville area called Grace Community Church (PCA).  They desired to plant a church like Grace Community in their region.  In 2006, the leadership of Grace Community Church responded to this desire by sending one of their elders, John Morris, down each Sunday night to lead a Bible study.

 

In May 2007, Rev. Scott Stewart was hired by Grace to pastor this new congregation in Polk County.  Soon after Scott arrived, the core group began regular worship services in the home of Jeff and Helen Byrd, and by March of 2008, the church officially began public worship in The Tryon Theater.  And in 2012, Grace Foothills became a particular church in the Presbyterian Church in America.

 

In the summer of 2014, Rev. Scott Stewart was called to lead a new church plant on the east side of Nashville, TN. 

In April of 2015, Rev. Josh Kwasny became pastor of Grace Foothills until April of 2016.

Rev. Steve Morgan became the pastor in May 2017.


Grace is now in its 10th year. The people who call Grace home come from diverse backgrounds and serve the community in a variety of ways. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ in the everyday stuff of life!
