Grace Fellowship, Inc. is the parent of Grace Fellowship Church and Parker Heights Christian.  It is a 501(c)3 Corporation under the auspices and IRS group Exemption #1620 of Full Gospel Fellowship of Churches and Ministries International, Inc.  Grace Fellowship, Inc. has a Board of Directors which govern all activities and outreaches.

Founded in 1978 by a group seeking a place "Where Jesus is truly Lord" the vision has always been a hub - spokes - wheel -- with the church at the center and outreach ministries extending locally, then to the State and Nation and the World.

In 2005 after Pastor Mark had been renting the facilities of Parker Heights Christian Church for some years conducting Bible studies and healing services in Odessa, Texas, the congregation merged with Grace and we became one church with two locations.

In 2004, one of our members found people in our community who were hungry and began to feed them out of their own pocket.  That ministry grew until it overwhelmed the original donor.  A sub-corporation was formed -- Ward County Greater Works, Inc.  with its own Board of Directors to persue grants and enlist broad community and multi-church involvement in feeding the hungry.  Shortly a building was donated in the downtown of Monahans where work carries on daily to meet the needs of elderly and disabled and those who find themselves in emergency circumstances.  The work was extended to Odessa at the Parker Heights location with a dba, Ector County Greater Works.   A generous business gave a large building in Kermit, and the work was extended there with Winkler County Greater Works, and now a fourth outreach has been added in Midland.  As community involvement rallied, the former Boy's and Girl's Club of Monahans was given where the Monahans Kidz Zone carries on afterschool tutoring, teaching, games, and food in a loving and safe environment for 30 - 60 kids weekdays.

Our call is to heal and restore people.  Pastor Mark has a mandate from the Lord to train and equip believers to be leaders who preach and proclaim the Good News of the Savior with Holy Spirit POWER!
