Pastor Jason Fry has been in pastoral ministry for over 30 years – all of his adult life – before coming to Grace as the Senior Pastor in 2015. He sensed a call to full-time ministry of some sort at age 17, and even though he didn’t quite know yet in what form that ministry would be, at that point he was certain of two things: it was not to be a pastor and it would not be in the United Methodist Church (the church in which he was raised from birth).
Jason has been married to Joan since 1978 and they have two grown children, John a PhD student in medieval literature at UT and Sarah, a pediatric RN in the Austin area where she lives with her husband Ismael. Jason’s other passions are Scouting and amateur astronomy.
Pastor Rebekah Rochte spent her childhood on military posts in the U.S. and Germany before her family settled in Virginia. Despite her plans to be an archaeologist, Rebekah first heard the whispers of a call to ministry while she was a performer and small group leader for an ecumenical touring choir, and moved to Texas to pursue that call.

Grace is a church that believes in Jesus, a church that loves God and people.
We believe the church is the community of faith where we connect with God and one another. In this community, we put into action – supporting and caring for one another and our neighbors, growing in our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and leading others to become disciples.
