Meet the Ministry Staff (part 1)

We are so blessed here at Grace Church to have such a tremendous staff. One of the best parts of my ministry here is the people that I get to work with day in and day out to see us as a ministry meet people where they are and help to move them to where God wants them to be. Let me take the next several blog entries to introduce you more intimately to the ministry staff we have here at Grace! As you read each one, why not take a moment to pray for them that God would continue to bless their lives, families and ministry.
