our Pastors

Grace City Church began in the heart of our leaders Elias and Monica. Elias and Monica met 16 years ago as they attended the same church, Bread of Life Church in Lake Elsinore, CA. Early in their walk with God, they’ve been passionate to serve others and help them grow in their walk with Christ. 


For the past several years, Elias and Monica have felt the call of God in their hearts to plant a church in their community. After much prayer, preparation and consideration from their pastors, an opportunity was provided for Elias & Monica to build a team from their local church, Bread of Life Church in Lake Elsinore, CA. Elias & Monica, along with their sons Samuel and Seth, gladly accepted the opportunity to plant a church in the city of Temecula that will be known as Grace City Church. 


In December 2018, Elias and Monica prayerfully invited a team from their local church that they would love to share this journey with. The launch team is comprised of 10 adults and 5 children. This team is comprised of gifted, talented, and experienced men and women who are passionate about God and serving his church. Each of them has a unique story that will bring life to the birth of this church.
