Hello, my name is Bradley Gray.
Welcome to Grace Upon Grace, a place where I get to serve up the timeless truth of God’s “grace upon grace” (John 1:16) for every weary and worn-out soul. These writings and resources are here to benefit you as you navigate this frazzled world of sin and strife. My prayer is that amid this realm of debris and darkness, you will find some semblance of hope among these words and conversations.
I currently serve as the Senior Pastor of Stonington Baptist Church in Paxinos, Pennsylvania, where I live with my wife Natalie, daughter Lydia, son Braxton, and newborn daughter Bailey. I spend most of my time reading, writing, and watching movies, all of which serves as the inspiration for much of what you see here. Thanks for stopping by and supporting my work.

Prodigal Hope is a podcast consisting of a collection of sermons and talks I’ve been fortunate enough to deliver over the years. At every turn, I aim to unfold Scripture so that all may “see Jesus” (John 12:21). He is my priority every time I preach. May the God of all grace and glory be magnified as I declare his grace and truth.
The Ministry Minded Podcast is a show that seeks to marvel at the mercy of God that meets us in our messy ministries. It’s a show full of interviews, stories, and reflections on God’s amazing grace in the often messy and chaotic life known as “the ministry.” Growing up a pastor’s kid, you see and hear and learn things about the ministry that many others don’t get the privilege of seeing and hearing and learning. The fact is, ministry is a lot messier than people think or like to admit. It’s not always clean and tidy and nice. Oftentimes, it’s a bit dirty and grungy. It is, after all, broken people helping other broken people cope with their brokenness and guiding them to see the Lover of the broken.
With this in mind, Ministry Minded is here to have frank discussions about the ministry for those already in it, those thinking about it, or even for those that haven’t thought about it yet. Through these candid interviews and conversations, I endeavor to dive into the unsung intricacies of everyday ministry and point to the Savior who meets us there, in our mess. Through this medium, I hope to delve into the intricacies of everyday ministry. Not the flashy parts that attract people but the messy parts that may, perhaps, scare people. My hope and prayer is that this will give you an honest look at God’s matchless grace which meets us even in our messy ministries.
