ABOUT OUR PASTOR

Reverend Harry Knotts, Senior Pastor

The Lord has guided Pastor Harry Knotts on a life-long journey that has ultimately given him the opportunity to serve at Grace Chapel. Born on August 11, 1947, Pastor Harry grew up in Massillon, Ohio. After graduating from high school, he went on to Malone College where he received his bachelorís degree in business management. With high ambitions and his degree in hand, he embarked on a long and successful career in the food packaging industry. Over the course of 27 years Pastor Harry traveled extensively throughout the world, but always called northeast Ohio his home. While he enjoyed his career, he could never deny the strong calling he felt toward ministry.

Pastor Harry decided to follow his heart as the Lord led him back to Malone College for a second time. After studying the word of God and developing a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, he graduated with a masterís degree in Christian Ministries. The life-changing decision to go back to school would have a tremendous impact on the rest of his life. Soon after, Pastor Harry started his first ministry at Mayfair Country Club. Years of Godís blessings have transformed the once small, golf ministry, into the church that has become Grace Chapel.

Today, Pastor Harry lives with his loving wife Stephanie in Green, Ohio. As a bi-vocational man, he serves as both the Senior Pastor at Grace Chapel and works for a local marketing company called Crowl, Montgomery & Clark. Among other things, Pastor Harry is also actively involved with sports and adult ministry, counseling, and pastor retreats. Family is one of the most important things in Pastor Harryís life. He has been blessed with two sons, two wonderful daughter-in-laws, and four of the best grandchildren in the world.
