Our Story

June 2010. A pioneering team of 14 college ministry staff ventured down to sunny San Diego from our Gracepoint Berkeley and Davis churches with the vision of establishing a Christ-centered, biblical community at UC San Diego. Fast forward to today – our congregation is a multi-ethnic community composed largely of college students and young adults. Here you can meet people from all walks of life and all sorts of backgrounds. There are people who have never stepped foot inside a church and people who have been to church all their lives. Now this is the place that we all call our spiritual home.

Gracepoint San Diego is part of the Gracepoint Ministries church network where our vision is to have an Acts 2 church in every college town. Our newest church is located in Gracepoint Seattle!


Meet Our Leaders


Tony and Michelle Sun are the dynamic duo leading our Gracepoint San Diego church. They both graduated from UC Berkeley with degrees in engineering, and have served faithfully in almost every ministry at Gracepoint Berkeley church over the last 30 years. They have two sons – Stephen, who is serving on the church plant team at our newest Gracepoint Seattle church, and Philip, who is a freshman at UC Berkeley. While many empty-nesters view this as an opportunity to relax, travel, and finally enjoy some peace & quiet, Tony and Michelle show no signs of slowing down! With Tony’s irrepressible youthful energy and Michelle’s amazingly calm and can-do spirit, they picked up everything and moved down to lead our San Diego church!

Meet Our Staff

We are UC graduates with a passion to serve the college community at UC San Diego. Some of us moved down from our ministries in Berkeley and Davis with the desire to share the Gospel with college students. Today, we serve alongside UC San Diego graduates who share the same vision of an Acts 2 church in every college town.
