Gary and Susan Gelnette have been part of Grace International for many years. They have a passion to bring revival wherever they go and love to see the lost restored and totally free.
Gary loves to bring revelation from Word of God, and both he and Susan minister the prophetic individually and corporately. They know that God has great plans for the San Antonio region and want to partner with Him in prayer and agreement to manifest His glory here.
They have a pudel pointer dog named Finn and love to ride motorcycles and hang out at coffee shops!
Chris and Teia O'Neil have been pastoring in the region of southern Oregon for over ten years before being called to San Antonio. Their reality includes an ongoing partnership with the presence of God, while engaging others in His presence. Loving God, loving family, making friends, and helping people are core values they live by every day. They are both amazing pastors and worship leaders, and carry the gift of prophetic encouragement and discipleship. Chris is an impressive historian, as he studies and learns from the past great revivalists and moves of God, while ushering us into the current flow of the Spirit. They have a beautiful son named Gavin, who is a wonderful blessing and miracle to them.
Grace Church San Antonio is part of the Grace International organization.
In over seventy five years of history, we have had four presidents. Our founder, O.C. Harms was a visionary leader with an evangelistic mindset. His brother, R. H. Harms, became our second president, who being an organizer, added structure to the organization. Under his leadership, in 1979, the name of the organization was changed to Christian Evangelistic Assemblies as a reflection of our continued growth and expansion. The mantle of the organization was then passed on to Orvel Taylor, who was installed as our third President. He was a relational leader who strove for an attitude of excellence in everything he and the organization did. Today, we are under the direction of our fourth President, Steve Riggle. Steve is a visionary and motivator. He is also the Senior Pastor of Grace Community Church, with over 15,000 active members on three campuses in Houston, TX; The Woodlands, TX; and Oceanside, CA. Globally, the Grace International is currently serving over one hundred sixty five thousand members, twenty four hundred churches, in more than seventy countries. We embrace a vision of continued expansion and growth on a national and international level. We expect multiplication of members, churches, and districts. Our vision includes the establishment of additional International Training Centers in strategic locations. Our vision is for the global community, yet we are committed to the importance of each individual member of Grace International. It is our goal to offer support, guidance, and credibility to each person involved. It is our desire to provide a strong foundation for ministry in today’s society through the relationships, resources and leadership of Grace International.
