Josh King

Hello all! Thanks for checking out our website! I hope that God blesses you as you seek to connect with us or just learn more about what GracePoint Community Church is all about. Spoiler alert…we are about Jesus! I am honored to be the Senior Pastor of this community of people dedicated to living out the love and grace of our Savior in a way that changes us, blesses others, and gives glory to God.

God called me into pastoral ministry out of a career in communications construction in 2001. Since then, I have served as a youth and associate pastor in the Denver area before coming to GracePoint. Along the way, I earned a Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary…taking all of ten and a half years to get that degree while juggling family and ministry life!

I am a living testimony to the truth of Proverbs 18:22, which says, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord” (NIV). JoAnna and I met in college and she is the love of my life and truly a gift of favor from God. We have four children, three girls and one boy.  Emma and Ella live with us and attend college in Denver. Our oldest daughter is married and we have the most precious baby in the world as our first grandchild!

We love hiking, playing together, enjoying Cardinals baseball, and making good food. Our heart is to do life together in community and to live the Gospel to a world that desperately needs the transforming power of the cross.

Mindy Grudenich – Administrative Assistant

I am originally from North Dakota, but grew up in Oregon, and came to Colorado the first time to attend St. Luke’s School of Nursing, CU Denver in 1966.  I lived in California for a few years but came back to Colorado because all of my family was here. I worked as a physician’s assistant for 12 1/2 years and then went into medical transcription for 26 years. I was led to working for GracePoint as I felt God calling me to be centered here at the church. I have been a member of GracePoint Community Church since 1995. After moving to the Littleton/Englewood area in 2006, I have been able to be more involved in the church with Seniors Bible Study, the prayer group and the Food Bank ministry, which has been very rewarding for me.
