Senior Pastor

Pastor Seth J. Hon comes from a large Christian family. As a pastor’s son, he grew up with a love for family and the ministry. He accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at an early age.
 
As a young person, he had a desire to go into business and support the ministry financially. However, In August of 1999, he accepted the call to full-time Christian service. From that time forward his life took a different emphasis. He began taking Bible College courses and for the next several years served in many different ministries: bus director, soul winning director, new Christians discipleship class, missions director, taking several trips to the Philippines, and eventually becoming the assistant pastor of his home church, Lighthouse Baptist Church. It was during this time that he met and married his wife Hannah.
 
He became the assistant pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Terre Haute, Indiana, in January of 2008. However, in the fall of 2009, he felt the call of the Lord to go into the pastorate. In March of 2010, he accepted the call of Charity Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he served for six years. On February 14, 2016, after much prayer he accepted the call to pastor Grace Baptist Church here in Columbus, Georgia.
 
Pastor Hon has a strong burden for seeing people come to know Christ and growing through discipleship in the local New Testament Church. Pastor Hon is a strong Bible preacher who loves the church and people. If you are new to Grace, you’ll find pastor in the auditorium or foyer before and after each service as he greets everyone on their way in or out.

CHILDREN'S CHURCH
Sunday Morning - 9:45 & 11:00 AM
Children's Church is offered for kids age 3 through 3rd grade. 4th through 6th grade attend the 11:00 morning service. Young children are taught in a hands-on classroom setting, while older children participate in more of a "church service" with singing, object lessons, and preaching designed for them.
PATCH THE PIRATE CLUBS
Sunday Evening - 6:00 PM
Patch the Pirate Clubs are offered for young people ages 3 through 5. They are dismissed from the sanctuary right before the message. The Patch Club is a fun time of Godly character lessons, Bible songs, object lessons, stories and games. It is an excellent opportunity for children to grow spiritually, learn God's Word, develop a sense of camaraderie with their fellow "sailors", and just have a boat-load of fun. Come aboard!
MASTER CLUBS
Wednesday Evenings - 7:00 PM
We offer Master Clubs for children ages 3 through 6th grade. This is an excellent program to promote spiritual growth and development of young minds and in the maturing process hide God's Word in their hearts.
 
 

Youth

Youth Under Grace is committed to producing mature Christian youth. Our desire is to see teens come to know Christ as their personal Savior and to be successful and productive Christian citizens and family members through the teaching of Biblical principles. There are plenty of activities designed to give your teen opportunities to exercise what they are learning.
 
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” —1 Timothy 4:12

College & Career

Grace Baptist Church desires to address the growing diversity among young singles. As millennials enter our career paths, a unique kind of stress challenges us. As a result, we typically become more intentional about finding spiritual guidance and church community. If you’ve just graduated high school, are facing college pressures, are a single member of the military, or are upwardly mobile in the work force, your faith can go forward in the college and career ministry of GBC.  
  • Weekly Bible Studies
  • Frequent Group Activities
  • Regular Meals With Peers
  • Community Outreaches
  • Opportunities for Growth & Service
 
Our Faith Forward Bible study meets every Sunday morning before the morning worship service. This group study is our primary means of connecting with peers and building spiritual stamina. Single adults want to enjoy the full Christian experience while overcoming the obstacles of our faith. So, our group meets to discuss these unique needs and how the Bible addresses them.

Adults

We offer several Bible study classes for adults of various age groups. This is where practical Bible instruction is mingled with fellowship and encouragement. In addition, we have several ministries just for men and women.

Seniors

Young at Hearts is our Senior Saints’ ministry. This ministry seeks to keep our elderly members active and in love with the Savior. Taking trips together, doing projects together, and helping the local church minister to others is all part of the program. In turn, the church body itself works on meeting the needs of our most experienced members.
The Senior Saints meet every month for lunch, fellowship, and a devotional time in the Word.

Transportation

Since the late 1950s, the bus ministry of Grace Baptist Church has been providing transportation for those who would not otherwise be able to come to our worship services. Children, teenagers, and adults board our buses each week and dozens accept Christ as Savior throughout the year.
 
Also, bus church for children and teens meets from 11:00-12:15 on Sunday mornings.
 
If you would like either bus or van transportation, call the church office at (706) 323-1046.

Events

 
 

Ft. Benning

Grace Baptist Church is home to many military families. We are actively involved in reaching our military community.
 
You do not have to spend much time in Columbus, Georgia, or Phenix City, Alabama, to see that our community is made up of thousands of military families. Whether eating in a local restaurant, shopping, or walking in your neighborhood, you will see men and women wearing the uniform that identifies them with the greatest military in all the world.
 
If you are coming to Ft. Benning, we invite you to come and be a part of Grace Baptist Church. You will agree it will be a place you will want to call home.
 
If you are coming for basic training or would like more information about our military ministry on base, contact Dan Kursinsky at 706-442-6309.
