history & affiliation

Marysville Grace Brethren Church began as a church plant from the Powell (OH) Grace Brethren Church. In 2002, Powell GBC hired Pastor Clancy Cruise to move his family to Marysville and begin a new congregation. The church held its official launch in September 2003 at Navin Elementary School with faith in God’s provision and direction. Marysville Grace currently averages close to 1,100 people at its Weekend Worship times and has shared its resources with ministries in Africa, Europe, and North America.
