Lead Pastors: Patrick & Laura Grach

Patrick is the founding and Lead Pastor of Lifehouse Church. While God laid this church-planting vision on Patrick's heart back in college, the process did not begin until 2003 when he and Laura moved to Hagerstown, Maryland. While Patrick and Laura are both originally from New York, they have ministered in the Maryland/West Virginia region since 1999. Patrick and Laura are graduates of Northpoint Bible College in Haverhill, Massachusetts (formally known as Zion Bible College), both earning BA's in Biblical Studies. Patrick has a minor in Pastoral Ministry and Laura has a minor in Christian Education. Patrick also holds an MA in Counseling from Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA.

Patrick feels privileged and honored to pastor Lifehouse and is not afraid to talk about any subject, keeping his sermons practical, relevant, and humorous. He also enjoys hiking, camping, skiing, and golfing, and is frequently looking forward to the next opportunity to compete in a marathon, triathlon or mud race that comes his way. Laura has been serving on staff at Lifehouse Church since 2010 and holds down the fort at home. Patrick and Laura have three daughters, Rebecca, Carissa, and Bethany, and two sons, Daniel and Matthew.
