Kortnie Garrett

Grace Kids Early Childhood Director

I trusted Christ when I was 5 years old and I was baptized here at Grace by my dad a few years later. Grace Church has been a part of my family my whole life and I am incredibly grateful for this community. My husband and I met in 2010 when I studied abroad in Senegal, West Africa during my junior year of high school. We attended Asbury University in Kentucky and I graduated with a Bachelors in Missions with a double minor in Christian Ministries and Elementary Education. We married in 2016 and welcomed our beautiful daughter, Alyda Rae, into the world in December, 2017 and she is our little ray of sunshine.  Christ is continually teaching me that HE is the light in my darkness. Christ's love for me overcomes every obstacle, fear and tough time that I may face and I am never alone.
