Mike Stone


Kevin Smith

Co – Founder

Hi, my name is Mike Stone, and I am the founder of Grace Coach. I also serve as a grace coach, website writer and podcast host. In 1992, I heard on Christian radio something, which changed my life. The radio host was talking to the caller about a new life in Christ.

A new life in Christ? I had never heard that in church. The only message I had ever heard was, that I was a sinner in need of forgiveness. As I listened closer, I came to understand that I was born into this world spiritually dead in need of life. That day, I prayed to asked Jesus Christ to give me His life, and I was born again! “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.”-John 5:24

For the past 30+ years, I have been leading groups in churches and in homes. For 10 years, I served on a Christian ministry board of directors and then 5 years ago founded Grace Coach. Proclaiming the full gospel is most rewarding experiences of my life.

If you are new to Grace Coach, I hope you listen to our podcasts and check out our website.

I would love to hear from you soon.
