How it all started
Grace Unlimited was a strategic and divinely ordained merger of the Kingdom Life Center Church International founded by Bishop Quacy L. Smith and the Heritage Christian Center of San Diego, founded by the late Bishop Dennis Leonard . After Bishop Leonard announced his return to Denver, Colorado to rebirth Heritage Christian Center in Colorado. He searched out a man of God who could lead the people of God in the San Diego Church he had organized, the mantle of leadership fell to Bishop Quacy L. Smith to take the ministry to the next level.
After assuming the helm of leadership, Bishop Smith sought the Lord for several months until he received direction from the Lord to merge the two ministries together to for a new global movement of Grace for this generation.
From this divine moment…the Global Grace movement began! WE are well on our way to fulfilling the vision of God for the local campuses and the territory to which God has assigned us to perfume the planet with the Gospel of Grace and to ensure that our Church campuses remain…the place of GRACE! A place where whoever can be healed of whatever!
Our Pastor and Family
Bishop Quacy L. Smith is a West Coast native who was born in Palm Springs, CA. He is the youngest son born to James and Teresa Smith. Being raised in a small desert city called Blythe, he accepted Christ as his personal Savior at a young age and acknowledged his call to the ministry at age 12. Since then, this Servant of God has been preaching and evangelizing the Word of God with power and with the demonstration of the Holy Ghost in several states throughout the country. This Man of God stands in the fullness of five-fold ministry and has entered into a dimension of ministry that is in demand in today’s society. God has greatly gifted him and given a life-changing prophetic revelation of the Word of God.
In his earlier years, after a very successful career in the United States Marine Corps, he attended San Diego State University and Trinity Theological Seminary where he studied in several areas focusing on business administration and theological philosophy. He continued his education with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Management from Union Institute and University, and pursued a MBA in Leadership from Grand Canyon University’s School of Business.
