Pastor Tom Sutherland joined the staff of Grace Christian Fellowship Church after living in Texas for 34 years. He hails from southern Michigan, raised in the country. After high school, he enlisted in the Air Force and set out to explore the world. While in military service, he met his wife, Lana, and received a call to Christian ministry. In answer to God’s calling, and upon completion of their active duty commitment, the Sutherlands, along with four other leadership couples and three, established Grace Fellowship. When they relocated to Austin, Texas in 2012, the church was strong, and prominent in the community.
