Pastor Sarah Gardner

Life Christian Church was founded in 1992 by Pastor Sarah Gardner (Pastor Tracy’s mother). The church originated as a small group, which eventually transformed into multiple church campuses in the state of Michigan. During a trip to Florida, Pastor Sarah met another pastor in Naples who’s church was going through hardship. It was at this time that Pastor Sarah felt led to help and what came next was nothing short of a miracle.
In 2011, Pastor Sarah invited Pastors James and Tracy Boyd to join her in helping revitalize the distressed church. In the beginning, approximately 40 people made up the church which was located in a commercial rental space. Lives were being transformed and doors were being opened. In 2018 the church changed it’s name to Grow Church and God made a way to purchase a large facility in North Naples. Today, Grow Church is located off Tamiami Trail and has expanded to multiple weekend experiences, Grow Groups around the city, and a life giving group of servant leaders. To God be all the glory for what He’s done and is currently doing in the lives of the people at Grow Church.
