Grace Staff

Grace Church is staffed by enthusiastic and dedicated followers of Christ! Each of our team members has answered the call to glorify God through their ministry at Grace Church. Not only has the Lord equipped these Gracers to lead our ministry, but He has also empowered them to equip the Grace Church congregation in serving these ministries as well!

  • LANCE STOOPS

    MINISTER OF SOUND - clark '84

    Lance is by far the coolest guy on staff. He runs the sound board and makes our band sound even better than they are. Lance loves riding his Harley, rocking out to 80's heavy metal (Metallica rulz!), and eating Mexican food. He is married to Elizabeth, our amazing pianist, and they have a son you will see with him at the sound board on Sundays.

    His favorite questions is: Is that loud enough?

  • ROBIN brown

    FINANCE MINISTER - Southfield High '87

    Robin is just plain awesome. She is the go-to person for all things financial at Grace. She handles the bookkeeping, online giving, income, outflow and financial statements. Robin is a yankee (Go Sparty!) who lived in Mexico for 16 years, is fluent in Spanish, and loves the Spurs. She has two amazingly talented daughters.

    Her favorite question is: Where would you like to be in 10 years?

  • kerry Green

    fellowship minister - Churchill '88

    Kerry is the kind of hostess who not only provides healthy, delicious meals but also makes sure the napkins, plates, and table cloths all match. She delights in making people feel welcome. Kerry is a registered dietician, raises chickens, and spends too much time in her gardens. She and her husband have two great kids.

    Her favorite questions is: What are you planting in your garden this season?

  • LANCY MCCLAIN

    CHILDREN'S MINISTER - Alamo Heights '12

    Lancy is our newest staff member. She loves children, dogs, and salsa -- not necessarily in that order. When she is not teaching swim lessons, she can usually be found hanging out with family and friends. Lancy is an adventurer who spent two years as a nanny in Australia. She is the daughter of a Methodist pastor and a children's minister. All things considered, she would rather be dancing.

    Her favorite question is: What is your ultimate travel destination?

  • JAMIE GEORGE

    Women's minister - macarthur '89

    Jamie loves teaching the Bible and is pursuing her Masters in Theology from Fuller Seminary online. Her greatest joy is discipling women as they grow in their relationship with Jesus. She's a fantastic mom, sells real estate and Zyai active wear in her "spare" time, and has been Jay's partner in ministry for 25 years. Her current binge on Netflix is "The Americans".

    Her favorite question is: What is God doing in this?
