Greg Riether has been in full-time pastoral ministry since 1988. In October of 2005, he felt led by God to begin a new congregation, Healing Grace Church.
The revelation of God’s abundant grace in Jesus Christ was revealed to Pastor Greg while reading Andrew Womack’s book, The War is Over. “When I stopped reading the Bible through the lens of the Old Covenant, the New Covenant of grace in Jesus joyfully exploded before me”, he says. “I realized that so many of the practices of religion had taken away from the message and power of Jesus’ finished work. Nothing has been the same since then.”
Sherry Riether co-pastors Healing Grace Church alongside her husband, Senior Pastor Greg Riether. Although a lifelong Christian, Sherry continually fought depression and feelings of failure until she heard and received the message of the pure Gospel of Grace.
The message of Grace revealed that her relationship with God was not about doing to become, but was a free gift of righteousness in the finished work of Jesus. This brought her peace and confidence in her relationship with Christ and has transformed her life.
