Pastor Melton's Quotes

"The kinship between God forgiving us, and us forgiving others, is that the act is not based upon merit."

Pastor Derek and Stacey Melton planted Pryor ON Fire Teen Ministries in 1991, having a deep burden to reach the troubled youth of our generation with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. This burden soon gave birth to an opportunity for teens to begin meeting in a small classroom south of Pryor. This was the birth of Pryor ON Fire Teen Ministries. After a short time that small classroom was packed and overflowing so the meetings were moved to two different locations, both of which were outgrown. The ministry continued to expand and grow as Thunderbird Youth Academy began to bus their cadets to the services weekly to join with local youth. In January of 1999, Pastor Derek and Stacey once again, felt the undeniable burden of the Lord to plant a church for adults who had began to attend these teen services. Grace Life Church was born out of this burden. The ministry was then moved to 110 E. Graham, where the ministry has purchased two properties giving the ministry 14,000 sq. ft., and a sanctuary that will seat over 250. The ministry resides in this location today.

Today, Pastor Derek and Stacey continue to experience a deep burden for at-risk youth struggling in our generation, ministering Jesus Christ and His love to hurting teens several times per week. Grace Life Church is also a godly presence in our city, as many families have found their place in this Christ exalting body of believers. These members are maturing in Christ from glory to glory. Our pastors are relentlessly labouring in Word, and prayer, to prepare the body of Christ to excel in their unique gifts and graces given to them by the Lord to function within the corporate body. Pastor Derek has a burden to restore historic biblical doctrine to our generation. In a world saturated with the evils of relativism, the objective truths of God’s Word need to be heralded with a clarion cry. The pulpit of Grace Life Church is a bold voice heralding this cry to the ends of the earth. The doctrines of justification by faith alone, regeneration, repentance, and the sufficiency of the scriptures, are imperative to the Christian faith, therefore much attention is given to them. Also, our generation of Christianity has become vastly unfamiliar with the God of the Bible, most of which is caused by the pulpit neglecting proper doctrinal instruction upon the character and nature of God. The pulpit of Grace Life Church is deeply focused upon the glory of God’s attributes as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and we’re committed to their proclamation. The atmosphere at Grace Life Church is vibrantly alive and doctrinally sound.

Pastor Derek and Stacey invite you to visit us and see for yourself what the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is accomplishing though this unique body of believers.
