Pastor and Heather

Senior Pastor–John K. LaShell

Dr. La Shell was born in 1947. He came to Grace Community in 1994 after pastorates in Wisconsin, Montana, and Western Pennsylvania.

He and his wife, Heather, were married in 1968. She worked as a registered nurse before retiring in 2014. Heather says she is a foreign missionary to the United States because she was born in Toronto, Canada. They have two children, both of whom are married and following the Lord. Four grandchildren bring a great deal of joy to their lives. More about Pastor LaShell may be found at Pastor’s Page.
