STAFF // Ross Thomas

Susan and I each connected with Grace while in college. That decision changed the course of our lives in a great way! We witnessed the Lord do powerful things in our own lives and in lives around us.


I joined the staff team in 2003 to focus on reaching teens in the Raleigh area. The Lord brought Susan and I together in 2009 and grew a passion in us to see new generations of believers experience Jesus in all stages of life. We now live in Cary where we are raising six children.

LiNC 2021 Report
Our summer mission project was like living in the book of Acts! God saved people on a daily basis. Our team from churches across the southeast and as far away as Colorado spent a month kick starting a new church plant for Grace Church's team which arrived at Old Dominion University in January of this year.

New Congregations & Church Planting Locations

This year, Grace started a new congregation in North Raleigh, sent a team to Norfolk, VA & Old Dominion University, and sent a church planting missionary to Kenya. Here are videos highlighting a few of those.

The first members of this team are moving to Norfolk, VA in December and January. God has already given them fruitful work during preliminary trips. Susan and I plan to be there for a month in 2021 helping our college LiNC project and the church plant team.

A Peek Under the Hood

If you're curious how we go about sharing the Gospel and following up with new believers, here's a peak at some of the simple tools we use. If you're interested to learn these things yourself or share them with your small group, shoot us an email and we'd love the opportunity to train you!
