In spring 2015, after a long history with the First Baptist Church of Medford, the decision was made for Grace Christian Schools to separate from First Baptist Church and create its own Grace Cascade Christian Schools 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. With the new corporation came a new Board of Trustees, who began serving their term at the beginning of the 2015/2016 school year. The current Grace Cascade Christian Schools Board of Trustees is comprised of three representatives from First Baptist Church (FBC) and six additional community and business members of the Rogue Valley.
