For many of us, college was a transformative time: Jesus’ all-consuming call grabbed a hold of our hearts as we experienced the richness of life within a biblical, counter-cultural Christian community. It’s an experience and a vision we want to pass on to others—an Acts 2 church in every college town. And so, we focus on college ministry, plant churches in college towns, and encourage every one of our members to live in loving, sacrificial service and ministry.
Meet the staff of Gracepoint Riverside. We’re UC graduates with a passion to serve the college community at UC Riverside and Cal Poly Pomona. Some of us moved down from our ministries in Berkeley and Davis in 2010 as an extension of our church in Berkeley (Gracepoint Berkeley Church) with a desire to impact college students. Today, we serve alongside UC Riverside grads who share in this same vision.
Meet Pastor Steve and Eunice! They are the dynamic duo who lead our church here at Gracepoint Riverside. They both graduated from the Engineering department at the University of California, Berkeley, but together were called to leave their professions to further God’s kingdom.
With zeal and compassion, they dedicate their lives to ministering to any curious (and hungry) college student that walks through their doors. Steve’s animated personality and Eunice’s witty humor are hallmarks to every one of our gatherings. On any given day at Gracepoint, you can find them planning for our church’s activities, meeting with students on campus, or simply welcoming people into their home.
