Our hope is that the DNA of GracePointe Church will be that of Jesus. The DNA of the leadership has been shaped by several healthy churches and networks that have also been shaped by Jesus. We will partner with some of these organizations.
GracePointe is part of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network. Acts 29 is a diverse, global family of churchplanting churches. It is our desire that we would be a church that plants churches that plants churches.
We are currently part of Catalyst Church in Newport News, Virginia. Catalyst has graciously agreed to partner with us as our local sending church. We will worship and serve at Catalyst as we discern our next steps in launching a church in Williamsburg. Being 45 minutes down the road, they will be a great support structure for us.
GracePointe is partnered with CrossPointe Coast in Viera, Florida. CrossPointe Coast is the church that sent us to Virginia. They have been faithful to pray for us and counsel us in this endeavor. They will continue to partner with us in many ways as we follow God into Williamsburg.
GracePointe is partnered with Portico Church in Charlottesville, Virginia. A college town rich in history, we see Williamsburg as a mini-Charlottesville in many respects. Portico is a church has a similar DNA to that we hope to plant at GracePointe. We've been aligned closely with Portico and they've even sent people our way to be part of GracePointe. We will continue to have strong ties to them and their ministry.
GracePointe is partnered with Hampton Roads Fellowship (HRF) in Newport News, Virginia. HRF is a local church that has trained us, taught us, and loved us well. We will continue to have strong ties to them and their ministry.
GracePointe is partnered with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV). The SBC of Virginia is a fellowship of more than 700 churches dedicated to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. The convention began in 1996 based on a belief in the inerrancy of Scriptures and committed to church planting as a means to reach the world for Christ.
