Pastor Perkins has been the Pastor of GBC since 2007. He was raised in the home of a church planting missionary. In July 1979, Paul realized his Baptist religion could not save him, and trusted Christ as his Saviour. Called to preach at summer camp of the same year, ministry became the focus of his work. Paul started attending Bible College in 1986, and has completed a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Master's Degree in Theology, and is currently working on his Doctorate. In May of 1990, Paul married Monessa, and the Lord has since blessed them with five children: Rebecca, Elisa, Timothy, Ethan and Tessa. Paul and Monessa served together here at GBC after marrying until 1995 when the Lord called them to be missionaries in the Philippines. There, they served in missions work until the Lord called them back to pastor Grace Baptist Church.
Pastor Stahl grew up in Northern Michigan, and was saved in 1981 as a young boy. He married Angela in September of 1993, and the Lord has blessed them with five children: Hannah, Joshua, Emma, Luke and Jude. Called to preach in 1999, he graduated from his church's Bible Institute, and later completed a Bachelor's degree in Theology. He is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Christian Counseling. As he sought God's will, Matt served faithfully in his home church as a lay preacher until being sent to pastor a church in Bay St. Louis, MS in 2011. There, he replanted a long-struggling church, and together with his family, rebuilt it to see it continue on fighting for lost souls. Having finished his course there, God brought Pastor Stahl and his wonderful family to serve with GBC in August 2021.
