About our leadership team. We believe there are two types of leaders called Elders in the Bible. There are Teaching Elders and Ruling Elders. Teaching Elders, also called Pastors, are called to teach and preach the Word of God. Ruling Elders join the teaching elder in leading the church and caring for the people God’s has brought to this local church.

Jeff Brunsink – Lead Pastor

A native of West Michigan, transplant to Northern New Jersey, Metro Philly, Columbia, SC and now Hampstead, NC, Jeff and his family are excited to be part of the Grace Church Family and the Greater Wilmington Community. Jeff has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with emphasis studies in Sociology and Communications from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI. He has a Master’s of Divinity Degree from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. He is the father of five kids and has been married to Kimberly since 1989. He loves Border Collies, photography, being on the water and riding his motorcycle. But most of all he loves Jesus, plain and simple. And he revels in the fact that even though he in no way deserves it, Jesus loves him unconditionally and sacrificially, and continues His Work of shaping and molding him into His own likeness.
