Louis Scheepers

Lead Pastor

Hello, my name is Louis Scheepers (pronounced not like "Sheep" but like a Skipper of a boat). I was born and raised in South Africa, where I grew up as a Pastor's kid. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved Jesus and the Church.

I completed my Bachelor of Theology and Master of Theology at the University of Pretoria. Since 2007, I served as a Youth-, Music- Lead Pastor and then a church planter in 3 different cities in South Africa. In September 2021, I was appointed as Senior Pastor at Grace Church.

I got married to my best friend, Yolandi, in 2010. We have two daughters, Abigail and Annabelle, and an Italian Greyhound, Fibi. We love to spend time in nature as a family. For fun, I also love to sing while playing my guitar and refinish wood furniture.

Win Bowman

Executive Pastor of Families & Facility

My name is Winfred, but everyone calls me Win. I was born to Dutch immigrants and raised in St.Catharines. I grew up in a Christian home, but in my late teens, realized I had to make my faith personal and gave my life to Jesus.

After a 15-year career as a Professional Engineer, I felt the Lord calling me to vocational ministry. I obtained an MA in Christian Studies and served at my home church in Beamsville for 7 years as Assistant and then Lead Pastor. I came to Grace Church in 2014 and am currently serving as the Executive Pastor.

While still an engineer, I met my beautiful wife Andrea in the UAE while she was on a short-term mission assignment. We married in 1994 and lived in Beamsville for 19 years raising two beautiful daughters, Anna and Moriah. I love sports, watching movies and brain-games.


Etienne Jacobs

Youth & Music Director

Hello there! I'm Etienne Jacobs, your friendly Youth and Music Director at Grace Church. My journey started in the sunny vibes of Johannesburg, South Africa, where I was born and raised.

Before making my way to Canada, I had the incredible experience of serving at two churches in the Johannesburg area.  I served in the music ministry at Mosaiek and had the joy of shepherding the youth at Kaleideo Church, adding a unique flavour to my journey.

When I'm not immersed in the world of worship, you'll find me hiking with Lernniece the amazing woman I am married to. It's our thing—the perfect blend of nature and joy.

Anna Bowman

Kids & Media Director

Hey! My name is Anna. I was born and raised in Beamsville, Ontario. I recognized my need for Jesus at a young age through Vacation Bible School and have been so blessed to be raised by parents who are passionate believers.

I have always had a passion for art and children and never thought I would use them in vocational ministry, but God had other plans. In 2017 I was hired as the Kids Ministry Director at Grace Church and in 2021 Media was added. I graduated from Heritage in 2023 with a Bachelor of Religious Education.

I have the joy of living in my own apartment and love to host people. I am also thankful to live close to my parents and sister and spend time with them. I love creating art, writing poetry, podcasting, hammocking, and going to the movie theatre.
