Elders (Pastors)

Website Pic_Tim_edit

Pastor Tim Iamaio

Grew up in the church but was not coverted until the age of 27 after years of rebellion. Since then the Lord has given him a desire to others grow in their knowledge of God's Word and their love for the Lord. He and his wife have been married for 11 years and he has a Masters in Biblical Studies from Reformed Theological Seminary. On May 16th, 2016, Tim Iamaio accepted the call to become the pastor of Grace Fellowship. Pastor Tim faithfully preached through Galatians for several months before being called by the members. We were impressed and encouraged by his knowledge of Scripture and passion for the gospel. We encourage and support Tim in his vision for this church in reaching the neighborhood and the nations with the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ. Pastor Tim's testimony

Pastor Dashawn Cousins

On March 16th, 2018 the members of Grace Fellowship unanimously agreed to call Dashawn Cousins to serve alongside Tim Iamaio as Elder/Pastor. From the moment he and his wife Bri joined our body he has served faithfully in many capacities. Initially coming on as a pastoral intern, Dashawn naturally discipled, helped with church organization and structure, and has become an effective teacher and preacher until it was evident to all that God had been preparing him to shepherd His people. We are blessed to have him and are amazed at the wisdom, humility and maturity God has blessed him with at a young age.

Jesse Allen-edit

Pastor Jesse Allen

On October 20, 2019 the members of Grace Fellowship, in full agreement, installed Jesse Allen as Elder. Jesse is a born leader and has served in many leadership roles in previous churches. From the moment he and his family joined Grace Fellowship they dug in. As the newest addition, he is a great compliment to Tim and Dashawn, bringing his practical, business and fatherly experience to our elders. Organizing and serving are natural for him, but the desire for knowledge of the Word and his love for the body is what has most impressed our members. He is respected for his wise counsel and with his wife Christy, who leads our children’s ministry, have many gifts and great hearts for hospitality. Their three children Dillon, Gemma and Mason are always jumping in to joyfully serve as well.
