Chris Meads


I grew up in Richmond, VA, in a family that taught me about Jesus. Growing up, I knew the truths of the gospel, but I did not love the truths of the gospel. I needed a new heart. In February 2011, God granted me new birth, sparking a deep desire to serve in the local church. An opportunity arose for me to receive Bible training at Criswell College in Dallas, TX. My education there ignited a newfound love for the Scriptures and prepared me for future ministry. I also gained valuable experience serving in student ministry roles at Aloma Baptist Church, Sachse's Church, and Prestonwood Baptist Church.

I have been at GracePoint Church since August of 2016. I met my wife, Abby Grace, while we were both serving on the student ministry team. God has blessed our 5 years of marriage with four children - Cash, Adler Jane, Callen, and one on the way! I now serve as the Interim Lead Pastor and Executive Director, working closely with every ministry of GracePoint. I am beyond thankful for our staff team and their gifts that build up our church. I'm eagerly anticipating what God has in store for our future in ministry.
