About Grace Hill Church:

Grace Hill is a non-denominational church in the heart of Collierville, TN. The vision of Grace Hill Church is "to become a community of grace and peace, for the good of our city and the fame of Jesus."

To help us accomplish this, we have four key strategic partnerships that help us expand our vision, they are:

  • Germantown Elementary School
  • The Family Resource Center
  • Agape Child and Family Services
  • The Forsaken Children

Through these partnerships, we help to provide housing, food, clothing, encouragement to teachers and funding to advance these organizations and the needs they encounter. In 2024, we are partnering with The Forsaken Children to fund four teenage girls escaping the sex trade in Africa. 

Much of our discipleship focus has been leading our staff team and congregation through Emotionally Healthy Discipleship and the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality course. We also host a number of book clubs throughout the year to dig deep into certain subjects. 

Our focus is not on divisive politics or cultural wars, but rather on embodying the message of hope that comes from the gospel of King Jesus and "his kingdom come." We want to bring hope to the bored, bitter, and broken, fostering unity in the local church, and witnessing real-life change. 

Our Lead Pastor, Jason Stockdale, was a worship leader for 15 years prior to becoming a Lead Pastor in 2016. He has also led creative teams and communications for large churches in the Memphis area. You will have someone you report to who is uniquly aware of the challenges that come with this role and will be a strong advocate for you, your development and your leadership in our church.
