Shelley Long

Pastor and Director of reach

I trusted Christ at age 6 and began attending a Christian school at age 9, where I developed a passion for the gospel and dedicated my life to serving Christ. I met my husband, Rick, in junior high and after graduation we went on to Bible college and founded Grace Church shortly after where we have been serving ever since. We are blessed with an amazing church family and 4 beautiful grown children who are starting families of their own.
