Grace Ann Arvey

Executive Assistant

GraceAnn22Grace Ann brings a lifelong passion for seeing the good news of the gospel transforming people's lives in community. This passion led her to spend her early career years as an elementary educator at an inner city school. She received her B.A. in Elementary Education from Covenant College and her M.Ed. in English Language Learning from Western Governors University. When the Lord opened the door for her to work alongside her husband's financial company as an executive assistant, she learned that she loved working with adults to transform culture from the top-down.  
Grace Ann resides in the scenic city of Chattanooga with her husband and their two toddlers--one who is biological and one who is adopted. During her free time, she loves to be outdoors exploring God's beautiful creation, hiking and boating with her family.
