Since its founding, the Grace House Family Church has been under the pastorate of Pastor Chuks Ozabor. He has invested hundreds of hours in the saving of souls, Bible studies, counseling sessions, sleepless nights, and time alone in the wilderness with the Spirit of God.
All of this was in preparation for his call to the ministry.
Setting the balance between ministry and being a husband to his lovely wife Augusta and father to two wonderful children Ephraim and Joshua was his next consideration. Little did either of them know that the same call to ministry was being carried out in his lovely wife, Augusta. As nothing could be better than a husband and wife team working together to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, it was on (Month, date, year), that Pastor Augusta was ordained by her husband and pressed into active ministry as an assistant pastor at her husband’s side.
Pastor Chuks and Augusta Ozabor have a very strong commitment to the charge mandated to them by God: to teach his word in order to stamp out spiritual and biblical ignorance in the church, save souls, and make disciples to impact the family and the community.
Destined to do great things in Jesus, together Pastor Chuks and Augusta Ozabor willingly give their lives and possessions as servants of the most high God and the people they have been called to lead.

Pastor Chuks Ozabor has a great burden and vision to move his congregation "Out of the Ordinary Into Greatness." His vision has definitely caught on at GHFC, which is clearly evidenced by the consistent stream of visitors and new converts added to each service. He has been truly blessed with favour from God and man with many doors being opened for him to influence the political and business leaders of the City of Johannesburg.

GRACE HOUSE FAMILY CHURCH MEDIA
Grace House Family Church Media is voice that speaks Gods heart loud from the pulpit to the community as well as promotions for all major conferences. More recently, we have ventured into promoting our services in order to more effectively spread the gospel message as we stream live all our Sunday services. You are invited to view some of our previously recorded content.
The Media Department is responsible for audio and visual materials that goes to the church bookstore. Media handles the duplicating of weekly services, audio and videotape catalogs, and stocking the bookstore with the finest selection of Christian literature, music tapes and any other specialty items. The Media of the Grace House Family Church is divided into four units, which serves in their respective capacity and profession as a team. They are:

Inclusive of Audio's responsibilities is the recording of all sermons, both audio and video, which are available for purchase in the bookstore.

Have you ever stopped to think what goes on behind the scenes at Grace House Family Church? Who keeps our equipments and gadgets in good working order? What happens when something vital (such as heating or air conditioning) quits working? Who performs the daily housekeeping duties that keep our facilities looking so neat and tidy?
The answer to all those questions and many more is…our technical team. The goal of our technical team is to support and serve the staff and members of GHFC, while maintaining the Church facilities in a manner that is pleasing to the Lord. Their excellent work is speaks all throughout the day.
SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM
Part of our goal in Grace House Family Church is to reach certain people for certain reasons, the question that keep on stirring us at the face is, do we want to connect with students, parents, or the leaders in our communities? We know each of these groups may require a different strategy. Do not intend or try to reach them all with just one thing, it usually doesn’t work.
GHFC TELEVISION & RADIO MINISTRY
Media – Television and Radio has been a remarkable way to reach the world for Christ. If Christians don’t have a strong presence in social media, the church will have little impact in years to come. That’s why it is so critical for Grace House Family Church to embrace media and use it as a tool to fulfill the Great Commission. At GHFC, we are blessed in this area. The TV and Radio ministry began in 20XX. The ministry then grew to include other forms of media: CD, DVD, Facebook and a website. The GHFC Television and Radio Ministry has done a wonderful job of adapting this ministry to the changing social media culture of the church. Our services can now be seen live around the world.
Where is the Children Building ? How do I get involved with a small group? What time does evening service start? Where are the restrooms? Being a greeter involves more than just standing at the door and shaking people's hands as they enter the church. It is the gift of helping as stated in I Corinthians 12:28, “And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping…”
In GHFC culture, the role of our church greeter is no less important than any other ministry. In this age of always connected-always on, a handshake and a bulletin are not enough to make the first-time visitor feel welcome. Like never before, visitors are paying more attention to how they and their families are treated. They want to feel they are important and accepted. If they are not made to feel special, the Internet provides a world of other options for them to pursue.
In order to respond to all our guests, our church greeters cover the entire church from Entry-to-Exit. In conjunction with the Parking Lot workers, this group is usually the first impression visitors get of our church. This team has a unique opportunity each Sunday to express God’s love by setting the tone of the upcoming worship service for those visiting our for the first or second time. They are always quick to provide helpful answers to questions and are committed to making our guests feel relaxed at home in our facilities. Since GHFC greeters are ambassadors of our church and our Lord, they are always willing to share our beliefs and visions with newcomers. With a simple “Thank you for coming!” these groups also are the last impression a guest has of our church.
With regard to our church greeters, they know by training that, “It is estimated that one out of every seven people comes to church with a heavy burden, so they know not to add to it, rather they are faith lifters.
At GHFC, our greeters are top-notch. Their dedication and commitment is a valued asset to our church. Their friendliness and kindness are easily seen as they minister to whatever needs our guests have.
