I have been blessed with 6 children, and 6 grandchildren. It has been my privilege to be a part of the GracePlace family since 1990. I began formal training at Williamstown Bible College and later earned degrees from Navarro College and Southwestern Assembly of God University. I am a Certified Grief Counselor. Serving as an administrator for our church family, working with our Elders, and providing pastoral care for this great faith community is an awesome privilege. My late wife, Martha, taught the same Sunday School class for over 29 years until her unexpected death in 2020.

Jesus searched hard and finally found me in my home church in Oak Cliff about 7 years ago, ready and willing to serve. I responded to His call.
God has used many people to bring me into ministry. My life has often been a crazy roller coaster ride with Jesus. Along for the ride has been my wife Perla. We married in 1995, and God has blessed us with 3 children Hailey, Madalyn, Jose, and 1 grandson Sebastian.
I was born in Chicago, but raised right here in the Dallas Metroplex area. God has given me a passion for Duncanville and the surrounding areas to seek out His people and see how they can be transformed by the truths of the gospel.
I began preaching at The GracePlace in September of 2010, and plan on being here for a long time! I'm taking classes through the Dallas Community College System as well as Dallas Christian College. I’ll always be a student of the gospel, a sucker for homemade flour tortillas, and excited about spending time with my family and friends.

GracePlace has been my church family since I was a baby but I have been serving on the ministry team since 2008. My parents were heavily involved in leadership roles with the youth ministry my whole life, which introduced me to my passion for youth ministry at an early age. From there, I went off to Abilene Christian University, where I received a B.S. in Youth and Family Ministry and a M.A. in Religion. Now my husband and I with our daughter share God's love and grace to the community that first introduced it to me. What a blessing to serve now in the church family that always has and continues to bless me through their love, encouragement, and guidance. God is truly awesome!

Office Ministry: Secretary/Publications (email@example.com)
I consider myself a little Dutch girl with a Texas accent. I have lived in Texas since my family came to America from Holland in 1962 hoping for a better life. I married my high school sweetheart Barry in October 1978, and we have 2 handsome sons and 5 very cute grandsons. Barry & I moved to the Duncanville area in 1997 and began attending here in September 1999. We were made to feel right at home. I joined the office staff in June 2003. I hope to serve you with the gifts God has granted me. I truly feel blessed with such a spiritual family here at the GracePlace.
Rosa FloresOffice Ministry: Membership Information(firstname.lastname@example.org)
I moved to Cedar Hill in May of 1998 and placed membership at this wonderful church shortly thereafter. In 2005 I retired from Frito-Lay, Inc. after 34 years of service in the payroll department. I joined the church staff in January 2006 as part-time data entry clerk keeping track of our membership. We maintain an extensive database, and with folks coming and going, it seems there is never a dull day.
I am widowed, and have 2 married sons and 6 grandchildren. Besides trying to keep up with everyone’s sport games, I enjoy reading and oil painting.
Office Ministry: Bookkeeper (email@example.com)
My family placed membership at the Duncanville Church of Christ in 1982 with two young daughters (Cassandra and Wendie). We were blessed to have this spiritual church family involved in our lives and the raising of two faithful children. Cassandra and her husband Jimmy Criswell, and my grandchildren Kierstin and Jett are active members of the Ovilla Church of Christ. Wendie and her husband Steven Ashcraft and my grandchildren Tanner and Kendyll are members here at the GracePlace.
Dave and I (married since 1979) love this church, and enjoy opportunities to share the news of the wonderful missions and outreach programs this church has been and is currently involved with inside and outside this community. We are proud to have been able to participate in and observe how this church has grown in its selfless service to others.
I have the pleasure of working in the role as bookkeeper for the church since April 2013. I truly enjoy spending my days with the joyful servants this church employs and sharing in their hopes, dreams, and goals for the continuing success of all their numerous ministries.
