Our Vision

The vision of Grace First is to REACH, TEACH, MEND, and SEND. Through this vision we strive to leave a lasting impression on our community and its surrounding areas.

1 Corinthians 12:12 tells us, “The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though it’s parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.” It is through this fusion, one to another, that we can successfully reach the hurting for Jesus Christ.

The definition of FUSION is the connecting of two or more things. We would like to invite you to come and connect with us at Grace First in Fredonia, Kansas. We are a place for people like you … because people really matter!

Pastor Ray and Brenda Pile
Lead Pastors

Pastor Ray and Brenda were both raised in southeast Kansas, graduating from Field Kindley High School in Coffeyville in 1972. They were married in 1974 and he graduated from Central Bible College in 1976. They pastored in Lyons, Nebraska from 1976 until 1986. They moved to Wichita in 1986 to pastor Trinity Christian Center. After over 22 years of fruitful ministry there, God brought them to Grace First in February of 2009. Pastor Ray enjoys teaching the Word and helping God’s people to walk in their respective callings. Brenda loves serving the church in practical ways and in the ministry of music. They have four grown children; Diane, Tony, Tim, and Stephen.

Pastor Nick and Jordan Sheats
Associate & Youth Pastors

Pastors Nick and Jordan joined the staff at Grace First in September of 2019. They have four children, Jaxon, Juliana, Jediah, and Jocelyn. Pastor Nick has worked with young people for over 18 years in varying capacities from diverse backgrounds in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas. His work ranged from supervising a residential facility for adolescent boys in the foster care system, to working with Jordan at a Teen Challenge facility for adolescent girls, to pastoring in the church. Jordan, as a teen, graduated from Main Place Youth—a Teen Challenge Facility in Kingman, Kansas. It was during this time that she came to know the Lord and was saved from a life on the streets. She went back later in life and worked on staff there with Nick, pouring into the lives of girls who were in the position she was once in. Nick and Jordan believe that building and developing relationships are the key to having the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with the young people in Fredonia and surrounding communities. They emphasize the mission that the Lord has given every one of His believers—to go into all the world and make disciples—to Love God, Love People, and Serve Others.

Amy Booth
Children’s Pastor
Pastor Amy grew up in Fredonia and Grace First has always been her home church. She began helping in Children’s Ministry at age 12. She continued to teach and volunteer through adulthood while mothering her own children. Amy’s love for the children and for the Lord continued to grow and her desire to teach kids about Jesus had grown immensely. While working at the Fredonia Middle School she began to ask the Lord about going to Bible School. There was one problem, she never felt released to do so. Then in June of 2009 she was given an opportunity to begin a new journey with the Lord as the Children’s Ministry Coordinator, a part time position here at Grace First! Then in 2016 she became the Children’s Pastor and was offered a full-time position. One of Amy’s favorite verses is, “You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.” Psalms 8:2. Amy lives at home with her husband Jason and has two grown daughters, Kera and Daya.
