Rebecca Coloma
Children’s ministry director

Rebecca has been a part of GCC for over 10 years and started leading the children’s ministry in 2022. She oversees all children’s ministry including the nursery and children’s church. Rebecca and Jorge were married in 2012 and started living in Marblehead. She worked as a second-grade teacher before having kids, but she has been a stay at home mom since their first son was born in 2014. They now have four kids, and she is a homeschooler and homemaker. Rebecca says that it’s been such a joy being involved with the Children’s Ministry. She is passionate about about equipping children and their families on their journey in faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. She has been so encouraged watching the children at Grace worship, pray, and memorize scripture together. 

Joe DeBenedictis
Youth Ministry director

Joe grew up in Marblehead and was part of the GCC youth ministry when he became a Christian. He leads the youth ministry and Grace Kids on Wednesday nights. Joe and Anna met while attending Moody Bible Institute Spokane, WA. He graduated in 2012 with a degree in Biblical Exposition. They were married that same year in Nashville in June of 2012. They moved from Spokane to the North Shore to pursue ministry and be closer to family. Currently, Joe works with at-risk youth in the community as a mentor while he pursues a Masters of Divinity from Reformed Theological Seminary. Joe reports that Youth Ministry has always been on his heart as it has been a big part of his story. As a kid growing up in a confused world, the people who spoke into my life the most were the leaders of his youth group. In youth ministry, his desire is to create an environment where kids can have a solid foundation in the gospel because the gospel is the power of God. Through Bible study, prayer and mentorship, Joe prays that God will change the hearts of youth and they can experience the grace of Jesus.
