About Us

Who We Are

You’ll experience a small, welcoming congregation who loves worshipping together, growing in God’s Word, and serving each other. We’re also part of the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) and follow the Reformed faith.

Exalt, Equip, Extend

We exist to glorify God through true worship, ministry to others, and taking the gospel to the ends of the earth.

Our Story

Our congregation was started by several families committed to seeing a Reformed church in Grand Island. We were organized as a mission work of Heartland Presbytery (Presbyterian Church in America) in 1990, under the name of Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church.

After meeting in various locations, in the summer of 1998, we moved to our current location at 418 West 12th Street. In November of 2004, we became a “particular” church in the PCA when the Heartland Presbytery installed our ruling elders as our governing court. We still have members that were part of those earliest efforts, and God has enabled us to share ministry and fellowship with many wonderful people over the years.

In November 2022, we changed the location of our worship to better serve our growing congregation. We are meeting at the Calvary Lutheran Church building at 1304 North Custer Avenue in Grand Island. Our offices are still located on 12th Street. We are very excited to continue growing our congregation!

Our Pastor Todd Bowen

Pastor Todd Bowen has served Grace Covenant since 1997. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University (B.S. 1987) and Covenant Theological Seminary (M.Div. 1993). Todd became a Christian following his freshman year at Vanderbilt and felt called to the ministry during his tenure there. Originally from Georgia and North Carolina, Todd has adapted to the harsher winters and Husker pride that Nebraska has to offer. He still enjoys chasing down golf balls when he gets time and watching sports, especially Tarheel basketball. He is married to Jackie and they have five children and three grandchildren.
