The calling to start Grace Point Church originated in Africa…
Life is a journey, right?Hopefully your journey is full and meaningful, with a scrapbook full of stories and photos of reflection. The journey metaphor has run through Grace Point from its inception. My family’s journey includes four years in Zambia as church planters. We thought we would spend the rest of our lives there, but God used those experiences, lessons, and the “detox” from the American church to reshape and morph our understanding as to what could be a fuller expression of His church. It was while in Africa that God called us back to America to start Grace Point.
From the beginning until now, we have sought to be a church for those who have given up on the church, but haven’t given up on God. We wanted to be a safe place for atheists to contemplate, agnostics to explore, and the “churchless” to find a new home and family. We want you to come as you are, but we don’t want you to leave as you came. Jesus wants to do a new and renewing work in all of us. No one has arrived. Journey with us as we journey closer and closer God.
