The Church at Grace Life

Pastor Herb Sims

We first met Herb in 2009 when he accompanied the Grace Connections Team to Barbados for a series of conversations to explore what Father might be up to through our miraculous connection. The members of Grace Connections attend The Church at Grace Life and have, for many years led The Ride there, which is their equivalent to the Wave.
