Pastor Ken Custer has been appointed Senior Pastor of Grace Church as of July of 2012. He and his wife Susan have three daughters: Hannah, Lydia, and Naomi.
Pastor Ken has been in ministry for 23 years and joins us after serving 16 years at Saegertown Methodist Church.
Our Office Manager, Chris Merashoff, has been an active part of Grace since 1997 and became secretary in April 2003.  She and her husband Fred have called the Lover area of Fallowfield Township home since shortly after they married in 1982. They are the parents of two, Kaitlyn and Jason.
Chris enjoys serving others and worked for 17 years as a legal secretary/paralegal in the Mon Valley before becoming a stay-at-home mom for a brief time. Chris enjoys working for her Grace family and is excited to see what big plans God has in store for Grace in the future. 
In her spare time Chris enjoys reading, spending time outside, baking and cooking dinners when everyone is home, and time with Fred.
Andrea Erbrecht joined the Grace Church staff in July 2009 as our Children’s Ministry Coordinator.
Andrea is a graduate of Grove City College in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, graduating Summa Cum Laude with Highest Honors. She previously taught second and third grade in Fairfax, Virginia and then second grade at St. Edmunds’s Academy in Pittsburgh.
Andrea and her husband Chad are the parents of Ciera Grace, born in August 2010, Caleb August, born in May 2012, and Lily Marie, born in February 2016.
Chad joins her in a deep commitment to the making of young disciples. They have both been involved in Children’s Ministry in the past, including serving as adult leaders in the LOGOS Children’s Ministry at their church in Virginia.
Andrea is responsible to coordinate all children’s ministries at Grace Church. She gives leadership to the development of both LOGOS (our after-school Wednesday children's ministry) and the child-oriented Sunday morning Family Worship Service.
