Meet Our Leadership

Jed Brown

Senior Pastor

Jed Brown was called to serve as Senior Pastor at Grace in November of 2019. He relocated to Elk Grove from Salt Lake City with his wife, Ann, and their four children. After having been raised near St. Louis, Missouri, attending college in southern Illinois, and marrying in Chicago, the Lord has moved Jed and Ann continually westward! First to Colorado Springs for 15 years, than as Associate Pastor at the Evangelical Free Church of Salt Lake City for nine years, and now all the way to California.

Those physical moves haven’t been the only big changes in his life. Jed had always felt called into full-time ministry, but started his career in banking. After 12 successful years as a bank officer, God provided in many ways for him to attend Front Range Bible Institute in Colorado Springs, full-time, graduating in 2010. He has also taken coursework at Westminster Theological Seminary, in Philadelphia, PA, in biblical counseling.

He has a passion for preaching and living out the truth of the Gospel, both from the pulpit, and in discipleship relationships. He also loves traveling to Ukraine annually to teach Biblical theology and ministry courses at the Precarpathian Bible Institute. His interests include distance running, reading, hiking, travel, European soccer, and good German food.

Worship Director

Mike is a pastor who led Godworks for many years. He joined Grace as the worship leading in December of 2023 and is building the worship ministry as well as leading us in a variety of ways.

Children’s Director

Ann arrived in Elk Grove, along with her husband Jed and their 4 kids (see above!) from Salt Lake City, UT in November 2019.  She began as Director of Children’s Ministry in February, 2024.  Ann’s professional background is in Elementary Education, earning her degree from Northwestern College in St. Paul, MN, and teaching mainly in Colorado.  Her heart, however, and most of her time over the last 20 years, has been devoted to raising her family.   Much of her life, she has served in Children’s Ministry, beginning in junior high looking after babies in the nursery.  She loves the children at Grace and enjoys serving them each week!

Michelle has been a member of Grace since 2011. In late 2020 she started working in the office doing a wide range of things. She is affectionally referred to as the “Chaos Coordinator” or the “Diva of Admin”. Michelle loves her job and all her church family and strives to serve with a grateful heart wherever she is needed.
