Who we are

Summer of 2014, twelve of us moved down from the Bay Area to sunny Irvine with the vision of planting a church on the UCI campus modeled after the church in Acts 2. We all came with a heart for college ministry because college is where we experienced the transforming power of the Gospel. Most of us have been serving as bi-vocational ministers after graduating and came to share this vision – to grow a life-transforming community as we try to obey God’s commands to love one another and go out to the world. We see church as what happens not just on Sundays, but Monday through Saturday – forming relationships, bonding, mentoring, doing life on life, and daily devotions in the Scriptures.  This is the heart of our ministry, and we look forward to inviting others to share in it.

Ray and Sieun Choi lead Gracepoint Irvine. They’ve served at our church and have been involved in college ministry for over 10 years with a passion to minister to college students. Ray loves to teach, anything from how to fix things around the house to how to play tennis, and Sieun loves to cook up a storm (Korean food is her specialty!) for people to enjoy. Before going full-time, Ray worked as an attorney and Sieun as a financial analyst. Today, they and their team of committed staff labor together to share the gospel and to love the community of UC-Irvine.
