Welcome to Gracepoint Santa Cruz

Whether you’re looking for a church community, or just curious about Christianity and the Bible, you’re welcome to start your journey with us at Gracepoint Santa Cruz!

Attending a new church can be an intimidating experience, and we get it. What should I wear? What do I do? Here’s what you can expect:

Most of us dress pretty casually. Our service usually starts with a time of singing led by our praise band. We listen to a sermon and we end with prayer (and maybe more singing). Sometimes we grab lunch or play sports together after!

You’ll find that some of us have been Christian for decades, and some of us are still figuring it all out. No matter what your background is, we hope you’ll join us!

Gracepoint Santa Cruz Leads

Josh and Jacqui Wang lead our Santa Cruz church. They both graduated from UC Berkeley and served at the Berkeley church before moving to Santa Cruz to help lead the church in Santa Cruz. On any given day, you can find Josh making pour over coffee, meeting students on campus, preparing messages, and beating college students in basketball. Meanwhile you can find Jacqui planning the logistics for our church events, cooking up a storm to feed the college students hanging out at her home, and counseling students.
