“Take care of my house, and I will take care of yours.” These were the words Pastor Ruddy Gracia received from God at the beginning of his successful ministry. And that was the beginning of a life of an incredibly passionate surrender to the Creator. Pastors Ruddy & Maria Gracia believed God for a numerous family; for children surrendered to the work in the ministry and He has responded to this.
The struggles and challenges were present. Their faith was tested under fire when they received the news that they were not able to have children. As a woman of conviction, Pastor Maria Gracia held on to God, believing Him for the miracle to conceive. Their first miracle began with Vanessa, their first daughter, 2 years later came Ruddy Jr, then Jessie and 9 years after the first born came their youngest child Joel Josiah.
Vanessa Gracia is a worshiper from the heart; her anointing truly moves the people to exalt our Creator. She was first involved with music and ministry at the age of 8, when she wrote her first song and began piano lessons.
Currently, Vanessa and her brother Ruddy lead the worship team and are also assisting in leading the youth ministry of Segadores de Vida, impacting the lives of more than 1,000 youth in South Florida.
She studies at a local private university, majoring in communications, desiring to develop skills that will later contribute to her work in the ministry.
