Our Purpose is to bring glory to God by completing the work He has given us to do (John 17:4).
Our Mission is to help every person discover and develop a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ as we grow together in grace and truth (Matthew 28:18-20).
Will Grapperhaus, Worship Minister
Will graduated from Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis with a degree in Religious Education in 1998 and began pursing a Master's Christian Education at Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky in 1999. Will has always loved church music and worship; from Sunday congregational singing to youth summer camps and college retreats. Since picking up the guitar in high school, the Lord has allowed him to lead worship in various settings for the past twenty years. Serving bi-vocationally, Will and his wife, Brandy, have been leading worship at GracePointe for the past four years and have three children, Amelia, Liam and Ellie. Will & Brandy seek to encourage God's people to worship Him in spirit and in truth in all they do (John 4:24, 1 Cor. 10:31).
Brandy Grapperhaus, Worship Ministry Coordinator
From an early age, Brandy knew that Jesus was her best friend and she could sing to Him whenever she was lonely or afraid. However, God made it clear to her as a young teen that she needed Him as her Savior and Lord of her life. Since then, she has had an everlasting joy to share her heart song with others that they may also have a relationship with Jesus and find their satisfaction in Him alone. She is so grateful to be serving GracePointe in this manner, and is privileged to be the wife of a godly man, Will Grapperhaus. They met in college, at what is now Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis, and married in 1999. Three amazing children later, God has used their lives to cultivate a love for mentoring and special needs ministry. Brandy's favorite verse is Nehemiah 8:10, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the JOY OF THE LORD is your strength!"
