Our Custodial Staff
& Freddy Drake
Our Administrative Assistant - Kim Gietl
I have been a staff member of Grace since 2014 as well as a long term member. I enjoy working together with the congregation on a day to day basis here in the church office. I am married to Joe and have three children Kyle, Lindsey and Katy.
When I am not serving at the church, I enjoy time with family and baking. I thank God for the people of Grace and enjoy my time here.
Our Cantor- J.B. George
“J.B.” stands for “John Brian.” I have been the Cantor at Grace since 2015. Though originally from Montana, I went to school in Illinois and Indiana, where I met my wife, Connie, and have been in the Midwest ever since. Connie is also a church musician and Lutheran school educator at Our Savior’s in Springfield. Grace is so welcoming to our children and my dad, after his recent move to Springfield. I am blessed and privileged to lead the singing of God’s people at Historic Grace!
Our Parish Nurse -
I have been parish nurse at Grace for over 15 years and helped start the program. One of my goals is to keep the congregation healthy and accomplish that by monthly articles and taking blood pressures. I am married to Chuck and we have 3 adult children and 5 beautiful grandchildren. I enjoy fishing with my husband, golf and reading any type of book. I thank God for our community and enjoy our fellowship.
