Who we are

Grace Academy is a nine month discipleship school where young adults lay down their lives, learn to hear the voice of God, discover their purpose, and incorporate spiritual disciplines in their life.

how we began..

Grace Academy began when Pastor Eric Lones saw that the younger generation at Grace Family Worship Center were hungry for a deeper relationship with God. In his heart he always carried a dream to disciple young people and create an atmosphere for them to flourish. In 2019, Pastor Eric received a confirmation in a prophetic moment that God was telling him to start this ministry.

Later on, Pastor Eric's daughter and son in law returned to Hazel Green from J38 School of Discipleship with the same heart to see young people discipled and equipped for ministry or the work place. They began the first year of Grace Academy in the Fall of 2020. Below is our contact information if you are interested.
