Ian Gilchrist

Ian Gilchrist

Lead Pastor

I’m a local Tennessean from the Nashville area. I fell in love with Grace Chapel as a volunteer at our Franklin campus in 2008 and haven’t looked back since. I married the love of my life, Amanda, and have four amazing kids. My heart is to see our people understand who they are in Christ!

I’ve been in full time teaching ministry for the last 10 years and I’m so excited to see a life-giving community with Biblical teaching and passionate worship in Fairview! I’m a graduate of the National Institute of Christian Leadership and received my Master’s degree in Ministry Leadership from Richmont Graduate University.

Jeff Boyet

Associate Pastor

I moved to Nashville 25 years ago to pursue my dream of a music career. After performing professionally for 15 years I received my Master’s Degree in Education from Lipscomb University in 2012 and was immediately offered a teaching position at Fairview Middle School. I taught middle school theatre from 2013-2020 and after receiving a Doctorate from Lipscomb University, I transitioned into the Associate Pastor position here at Grace Chapel Fairview. My beautiful wife Heather and I, and our two amazing kids Sydni and Jordan, reside in Fairview and have been a living part of the Grace Chapel family since 2010. It is our desire to build Jesus loving disciples and serve all, with all that He has given us.

Christy Marshall

Office Coordinator

I’ve been a Grace Chapel Fairview fan from Day one. I believed in the vision and am so full of passion for what this church has already done and will continue to do for our community. I’ve lived in Fairview, Tn since 2015 and it’s the most precious town. I’m honored to call it home. I accepted Christ at age 13 and never looked back. He really is the solid rock on which I stand. I am a proud Mom to three amazing children. Their faith has grown so much with their involvement with Grace Chapel Children’s and Youth ministry. I am passionate about health and fitness and believe that our bodies are a temple and we are called to treat it well. In my spare time you can find me hiking our beautiful Tennesse trails or reading a good page turner. I am the office coordinator and I have a real behind-the-scenes look at all that we do for our community and the outreach that we are involved in. It’s a blessing to work alongside the staff here at Grace. The passion with our entire team is unmatched. We really do believe in Fairivew.

Production Manager

I grew up loving to do production in churches, theatre, film and live music. To help create the atmosphere of so many different scenarios was so much fun to me. Being surrounded by such a musical family, I fell in love with live music, so I pursued my passions of audio, video and lighting.

In 2018, by Gods grace, I finally started my dream of touring around the country with an amazing artist and have been pursuing more tours around the world and trying to learn everywhere I go, on the road and at home. In January of 2020, I finally made my long awaited big move to Nashville to start an arena tour with an artist I have mad respect for. Sadly, due to the events of 2020, the concert touring world shut down. God is so faithful to me and through all the change has given me Grace Chapel Fairview. When I started coming in 2019 to the Leipers Fork campus, God blessed me in abundance with like-minded, kind and genuinely loving people who had a heart for others and newcomers. I am so grateful to be using my gifts for the Lord here at Grace Chapel Fairview.

We can't wait to worship with you on Sunday, May 16, 10AM for Home Church!
