tom editTom Mansbarger: Senior Pastor                               
I graduated from Eastbrook High School in 1970. I married my childhood sweetheart, Diane and we have been married 49 years. We have two sons Jeff and Tim, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. I was a pipe-fitter, and in 1980 the Lord pressed on my heart that I needed to be doing something else. The idea of becoming a pastor was beyond a foreign idea, but the Lord continued to work on my heart and I wasn’t content until I did it. I then earned a B.A. in Pastoral Ministry, a Masters in Pastoral Counseling from Luther Rice Seminary, and a Doctorate of Theology from International Seminary. In 1993, we decided to start Grace Community Church, where I am still serving as the pastor.
mark editMark Hummel: Associate Pastor                               
I was born in Winchester, IN, went to Huntington College which is where I met my wife of 40 years, Lynne. I became an electrician in 1977.  My wife and I shared a wonderful experience on December 2, 1984, we were both saved by the grace of God, at a small church in south Marion, where we continued to serve for 20 years. We were later blessed with a daughter in 1989, who is also a member of GCC and is a currently a RN. Then in 1998, I was ordained to minister the Gospel. We came to Grace Community Church in 2004, where we are currently blessed to be serving as Associate Pastor.

I am a native of Marion, Indiana, and a 2013 graduate of Moody Bible Institute (Chicago, IL). My wife Melissa and I met at Twin City Church in Marion where I had my internship after graduating college. At the age of thirteen I felt the Lord’s calling on my life to full-time pastoral ministry and I have prayed since high school about serving at a church in my hometown of Marion. Joining staff at Grace was one of the biggest answers to prayer the Lord has ever given me. Melissa and I are the proud parents of three cats, one dog, and our beautiful baby girl, Willow. I love sports, playing guitar, good coffee, and dad jokes. I am currently pursing my MDiv at Indianapolis Theological Seminary.
