Grace Cooper / Family and Women's Ministries Director

Grace Cooper was born in Detroit, MI, asked Jesus into her heart at age 5, and moved to CA when she was 7. Having been raised in a Christian home, she was blessed with a foundation that has impacted her entire journey through life. Grace met her husband at Contra Costa College in ‘89, married him in ‘91, and had the first of their four children in ‘92. The biggest jolt to her Christian faith was when, in a church in Modesto, she was taught how to study God’s word. Since then, her passion has been to teach people, young and old, how to experience God through His word and the leading of His Spirit.
