For many years, even those when she was not totally committed to “the calling”, Grace has strongly felt the call of God on her life expressed through music; this was solidified when she attended performance coach Tom Jackson’s Institute of Music & Ministry. Grace spent eight years at Queensway Baptist Church in Toronto; it was there that she met and married her husband, Brian. As a vocalist, her ministry began to expand as she accepted bookings for weddings, women’s events, small church banquets and charity fundraisers. With the urging of her Pastor to lead worship on a regular basis, Grace took that step of faith and was amazed to see how, despite her flaws, God blessed it. She began to plan services by researching music and working with a group of volunteers, including joining with two other women for the creation of a wonderful worship team. ‘The Trio’ worked hard over many countless hours to prepare music that served and honored God, and led their congregation into His worship. Best of all, she had great fun doing it. It was during these times that God reinforced His promise to us in Jeremiah 29 : “For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.” Today Grace can be found serving in ministry at Mississauga City Baptist Church, where she is a worship leader and team member, and with her husband attends a weekly community-active cell group for study, prayer, fellowship and personal growth. It is her deep desire that God bless people through her life and her joy of music — so that in the end, even one soul might come to know our wonderful Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
