In August 2000, the seeds of Redeemer Church were planted when several families reached out to Denton Bible Church (DBC) for discipleship. In the summer of 2003 a rotation of preachers—including Garrett Kell, Brandon Buie, and Dennis Omondi—came from DBC to minister to these like-minded believers, who were gathering at 517 Elm Street on the Square in Graham. And in January 2004, Graham Bible Church (GBC) was born with a Statement of Faith, board of elders, founding Constitution, and call of Garrett and Brandon to minister the Word.
In 2006, the church remodeled an old roller-skating rink to become the new gathering place for GBC. On September 5, 2010, Ryan Bishop was installed as senior pastor of GBC, as Garrett was leaving for pastoral ministry in the Washington, DC area.
In March 2018, GBC adopted a new Constitution, making it a congregational church. To celebrate the Lord’s faithfulness through the years to strengthen the church and to establish biblical health and regenerate membership, the church changed its name to Redeemer.
