Grace and her family have been members at Messiah since Grace was five years old. When she was a little older, Grace and her mother used to teach a Sunday school class together. She is also a nine-year veteran of Messiah's annual high altitude backpack trip in the Wallowa Mountains. A year ago, she graduated from Linfield College in McMinnville, OR, with a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training and recently passed her Nation Board of Certification exam for Athletic Trainers. Grace will serve in Messiah's children's ministry until the position is filled.
