Keith Carlson loves to see things grow and multiply, one of the most exciting of which has been the Grace Care Center and all the relationships and transformations that have resulted. For almost 20 years, he served on staff at Grace Church, for most of those years as Grace’s Pastor of Outreach & Care. Keith led the church in defining and developing its outreach mission, resulting in partner ministries in the broken places of the world—and providing paths for Grace individuals and families to connect through prayer, service and donations. One of those “ ideas” in 2012 became the Grace Care Center. He also helped envision and start the GCC Foundation in 2016 to help resource and expand the Grace Care Center. In 2019, he moved from his role as Pastor to a new role as Executive Director of the GCC Foundation. Before coming to Grace, Keith and his wife planted a church in Florida, and then owned a small business selling gourmet chocolates. Growing up in California, he loves the outdoors, hiking the entire John Muir Trail twice and completing a few marathons (slowly). Keith earned a Master of Divinity degree from Trinity International University after graduating from Wheaton College with a bachelor’s in philosophy and biblical studies. Keith and Rosalyn have been married for 30 years with three children—all of which have now flown out of the nest.
Since 2013, Cindy Johnson has passionately addressed food insecurity through volunteer work at the Grace Care Center and Carmel Clay Schools. Cindy created the Pantry Packs Program at Carmel Middle School and then coordinated the Backpack Program at Carmel High School for four years, providing students with supplemental food on the weekends, family food boxes, and grocery store gift cards. She is thrilled to serve as the GCC Foundation Project Manager and continues to volunteer as a Personal Shopper Team Leader in the Grace Care Center. Cindy’s professional experience includes working in communications and marketing with a variety of Indianapolis entities including the Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, and Central Indiana Community Foundation. Cindy and her husband, Brian, have attended Grace for more than nine years, live in Carmel, and have two college-aged children.

Marcus Casteel truly knows the challenges and emotions of living on food pantries. He visited them for a month to receive food (reimbursing each pantry for what he received) and sustain his own needs, but more importantly, allow Grace Church to better understand the needs and gaps when it opened its own choice food pan try in July 2012. Marcus was the leader in developing and launching Grace’s choice food pantry, which allows families to shop and select the items that meet their needs, just like a grocery store. Today, Marcus also oversees referral services, the vehicle ministry and ESL classes—all part of the Care Center, which impacts around 2,500 individuals each week. Since joining the Grace staff in 2005, Marcus has served in various capacities, including with the pastoral staff (as project director) and student ministries (as senior director). Previously, he was owner/operator of a Gold’s Gym and on the national staff of Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. He carries a passion for creating and developing new things as well as helping and coaching others. He also loves landscaping, cooking (he’s quite the chef) and his family—three sons and wife Kirsten, all volunteers at the Care Center.

Scott Quigley believes that compassion for others should lead to action towards change. Volunteering has always been his catalyst for seeing that change. Starting as young as a child, he and his family would volunteer at Grace Church and within the community. That passion grew at American University, where Scott volunteered consistently with his fraternity’s philanthropic initiatives called Push America, a front-line aid to people with disabilities. Scott’s diverse career has taken him to the heights of Jackson Hole in Wyoming, archaeology in Virginia, and nearly a decade of non-profit work in Indiana. Scott joined the GCC Foundation board as its first fellow in August 2018 and became an official board member in December 2019. In March 2020, he broadened his diverse career into the nutrition and supplement industry as the Director of Operations at Oliventures, Inc. Scott is a leader of leaders and a witness to God multiplying sustainable change through a willing heart and compassionate service.
