Our History

We are just getting started. Our first Sunday worship services started January 9, 2011, with 68 people attending. The official kickoff of Grace Community was Sunday, February 6, 2011, at which time 128 people were in attendance. Grace Community is a church plant from Christ Point Church in Corpus Christi. Christ Point's leadership for some time was looking at establishing a new work in Flour Bluff. Jess Cole, who was senior pastor there, felt God's call to step down and lead this new church in the Flour Bluff area.  Grace Community began meeting in the Flour Bluff Conference Center and moved to (10121 SPID by Gulf Coast Marine) in October 2011. In March of 2013, we purchased property at 1514 Flour Bluff Dr. and moved onto our new property on October 6, 2013. Construction on our new Worship Center and classrooms have been begun and we are hoping to be in it in October 2014.

Our Pastor

Jess Cole has pastored for more than 28 years. He was Senior Pastor of Padre Island Baptist Church for more than 16 years. Jess then started Christ Community Church in Corpus Christi, TX, which became Christ Point Church, and was Senior Pastor there for 9 years. When Christ Point Church decided to plant Grace Community, Jess left there and became it's pastor in January 2011. 

Jess was born and raised in Corpus Christi and graduated from Calallen High School in 1976. He received his BA in Bible Studies from Howard Payne University, after which he attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and earned a Master of Divinity degree there in 1984.

Jess is married to Jackie Cole, who is a chiropractor and owns Cole Chiropractic Clinic. Jackie also leads the worship team. They have a son, Seth, who is 9 years old.
