On November 13, 2016, God called us to something and we listened. Grace launched an initiative that was unlike anything we have ever done, called HopeFirst. We became part of a movement to fight addiction, and the fight is on! Since that time, God has done these things:

  • The people of Grace have given over $3.4M to this cause.
  • We’ve opened three Hope Houses, in addition to the Jane Aubrey House which launched it all.
  • We’ve completed and paid for the upper parking lot, adding 100 spaces for people. We are breaking ground on the Grace Kids building, making more room for kids to hear about Jesus!
  • HopeFirst is all about fighting addiction with the hope of Jesus. We do that in two ways. Half of the funds raised go toward the purchase of Hope Houses, where people who struggle with addiction can live, recover, and learn how to live healthy, productive lives. The other half of the money focuses on prevention and goes toward a new building making room for more kids to hear about Jesus.

    May 20, 2018 marks the day we are halfway through the project, and our focus changes, from starting to finishing well.

    Immediately following the groundbreaking, meet David and grab a picture and autograph! His new book will be available as well.
