Our History

Grace Evangelical Free Church is a church plant with the Central District of the Evangelical Free Church of America. 

In the fall of 2006, church planter Mark Doss met with a group of Indianola families who were interested in planting an Evangelical Free church. After many months of Bible study, prayer and planning, our first public worship service was held Easter Sunday, 2008. 

In the fall of 2012 we were blessed to be able to purchase a building to serve as our church home. The remodel of the former Mercy Medical Clinic was done primarily with volunteer labor. Services began in our new facility in early 2013.

"I see the need for all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people. I also believe the variety of people in and around Indianola offers a great opportunity for the Evangelical Free Church of America to sponsor a new church with the same beliefs as other area Free Churches but with a different ministry style. The Central District celebrates both the present influence of our existing churches and the potential influence of our new churches as we seek to expand our efforts to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ."  (Mark Doss, Regional Associate Superintendent)
