The GraceWay Story
GraceWay has a vision of reaching Washington, D.C., for Christ. Not only do we want to reach out to the leaders in government, but we also want to connect with staffers, lobbyists, and interns on all levels of government.
We have a desire to be involved and active in our community while keeping ourselves distinctly and unashamedly Christian.
Our theme for 2022 is "And of some have compassion, making a difference." from Jude 22.
The Brad & Deborah Wells Family
Pastor Brad was born in Los Angeles, but moved to Idaho at the age of eight. His parents, Dennis & Dee Wells, were called to serve as missionaries in Papua New Guinea in 1989.
Upon graduation from high school, Brad traveled to PNG with his parents, helping them in the first year of their ministry there. That was a turning point in Brad’s life. He too saw the need and felt the call. He returned to the States and graduated from the Treasure Valley Baptist Bible Institute with a Bachelor of Divinity in Theology. He married Deborah in 1995 and they arrived in Papua New Guinea in 1998.
After sixteen years of service in the foreign field, Brad & Deborah Wells received the call to establish the GraceWay Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. They have seven children.
The following paragraphs simply summarize what we believe as a church family. We believe the Bible and teach it to be perfectly true. Every belief and teaching of GraceWay flows from God’s Word.
