We want everyone to hear the good news of reconciliation with God and with each other through Jesus Christ. Our vision is to be united in the worship of God, thus celebrating and demonstrating the love of Jesus. All people are welcome in our church and we invite you to come worship with us! We hope you will, and we trust that you will find our worship to be a time when you are ushered into the very presence of God!

Why a Multi-Ethnic Church? Our Core Values

Our Vision

Where We Are Going

We want to love and serve our community and world with the good news of Jesus Christ. We believe that the power of that good news is seen by bringing people together across the lines of race and class to worship and follow Jesus. The love of Christ brings healing in our relationship with God and with one another, and it unifies us to worship Him together. In this worship, our lives are enriched through the diversity of races, cultures and backgrounds. But it goes beyond worship: we also learn and grow together; we share our everyday lives together; and then we go back out to love and serve our community with the Gospel.

As Jesus prayed in John 17,

“I pray that they may be one, Father, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

Our Story

Where We’ve Come From

Grace Church was started as a mission of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod (RPCES) in 1977. Grace became part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) in 1982. Jonathan Seda was called as pastor in 1983. Through a PromiseKeeper’s pastors’ conference coupled with deep, personal study of Ephesians, Pastor Seda was gripped with the biblical vision of racial reconciliation and the call of the gospel to reach across lines of race in class in our own Dover community. Kenny Foster joined our pastoral staff in 2007. In 2015, the Dover United Korean Church, which had met in our facilities for years, dissolved and became members of Grace, further strengthening our development as a multicultural congregation. Pastor David Jikwang Kim served on our staff from 2017-2020. Pastor Seda retired in fall of 2020, and Kenny Foster became Senior Pastor. Associate Pastor Joshua Suh joined us in January 2021.
