Our People


Rev. Chance Perdue - Rector (Pastor)

Father Chance was raised in West Virginia and attended college and seminary in Nashville, TN, where he served on staff at Church of the Redeemer for a number of years before coming to Grace Church. He is married to Kelley, a surgical nurse, and together they have two daughters. Chance is passionate about Christian worship, being a neighborhood pastor, and enjoying great food. If you're up for coffee and a conversation in or around Sewickley, drop him a note.
