My wife, Pam, and I have been leading Rock of Grace Family Ministries since 1992. We have experienced many changes at Rock of Grace over the years, but one thing has remained constant: God is faithful. We have found that to be true in our personal lives, as well. We were called into full-time ministry in 1982. In preparation, I attended Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, graduating in the spring of 1985. We began leading a church in Ruskin, Florida in July of that same year. In the spring of 1992 we were called to Rock of Grace. Rock of Grace is a rural church in northeast Ohio, whose influence reaches a community-at-large with the love of Jesus... READ MORE
Pastor Jordan Biel - Worship & Media Pastor
I was called into full-time ministry at youth camp when I was 12. I knew I would only be happy serving Jesus Christ. By the time I finished high school, it was confirmed that I was called to youth and worship ministries. After graduation, I helped plant a church called The Well in Geneva, IL. I went to Brownsville Revival School of Ministry (B.R.S.M) in Pensacola, FL. There I interned with President Richard Crisco and Pastor Tony Hooper and co-produced two worship CD’s and graduated with AA degrees in Pastoral Ministry and Worship Ministry. I was the youth and worship pastor here for 5 and 1/2 years and God moved us out of the youth position in Aug. of 2010 to focus on music production and traveling in ministry. I still serve as the Worship Pastor at ROG. God’s love has driven me to experience His presence every chance I can. For all information regarding our music ministry, visit www.JordanBiel.comREAD MORE
Pastor Randi McManus - Youth Pastor
I Ministry is most definitely one of my greatest passions. I love serving the Lord by serving people. I have been on staff at Rock of Grace since Sept. 2012 and I'm enjoying this church family so very much! I graduated Victory School of Ministry in Youngstown, OH in the Spring of 2011 and then did a youth ministry internship at a VCC campus church. I love working with teens! Students are seeking what's real and authentic and they will search until they find it. I am privileged to be guiding them towards God! I was born in Florida and grew up in Missouri; I was called to something bigger than me when I was 16. Since then, my parents have become pastors to students of all ages at a church in Salem, OH and I strive to be like them in many ways. The Lord has directed me to Rock of Grace and I am so happy He did! This family of believers is an extraordinarily healthy church where all feel welcome. READ MORE
Pastor Dan McConnell - Youth Pastor
I became a member of the Rock of Grace staff in August 2010, and it's been an awesome privilege to come back to my home church to serve. I have a definite passion for youth ministry at Rock of Grace, as it was the same youth ministry I was a part of as a student. I attended Southeastern University in Lakeland, FL where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Practical Theology. If you have any other questions; feel free to ask! READ MORE
