By His Grace Ministries History

This ministry began years ago in Clarksville, Tn. when a young boy at the age of nine started playing the piano for his church. This young boy grew to become a very talented and spiritual individual. He became involved in his church and was raised up by God quickly into leadership roles. He has served God as pianist, youth leader, youth guidance counselor, evangelist, district overseer, youth camp director, music director, praise & worship leader and as pastor in Tennessee, New Mexico, Montana and Wisconsin. He formerly was employed with Corner Music in Nashville, TN. He now serves the Lord fulltime in "By His Grace" Ministries. He was born and raised in Clarksville, TN. and of course this introduces you to Bro. Sammy Rye, leader of "By His Grace" and also a licensed minister in the Church of God of Prophecy. In a revival at Grace Chapel Church in Ashland City, TN., God gave His ministry the name "By His Grace" according to 1 Corinthians 15:10, the group's Bible theme; "But by the grace of God I am what I am;" "By His Grace" has had the opportunity to minister in many local congregations of various denominations throughout the US. They sponsored a joint praise & worship service at Bellshire Church of God of Prophecy in Nashville, TN. that included "The McGregors" of South Africa and "The Chosen One's" of Booneville, Ms. This service brought together Christians from many different denominations putting aside that barrier and worshipping our one common denominator, Jesus Christ. God truly blessed! There was a personal greeting sent by Bishop Kmiec of the the Middle Tennessee Catholic Archdiocese and a special welcome by Bishop Wayne Hall, Tennessee state overseer for Church of God of Prophecy. We were joined by Catholics, Baptists, Assembly of God, Church of God, Church of God of Prophecy, Episcopalians and many others. "By His Grace" had the opportunity to lead the Tennessee State Convention of the Church of God of Prophecy in worship in 1999 and returning for special performance in 2001. We recently opened for southern gospel music artists "The Dixie Melody Boys" in Fairview, TN., Labor Day weekend 2000. "By His Grace" just recently led praise & worship and special music for Bro. Paul Baggett,pastor of Millersville Assembly of God, in a tent revival in Millersville, TN. Bro. Paul Baggett is well known as "The Happy Pastor" and has traveled throughout the world. We recorded and released our first CD in May 2001 and released our second CD in June 2002. Gary L. Baker officially joined "By His Grace" in 1998. He has served the church as public relations director, special events director, praise & worship leader, Sunday School teacher and newsletter editor. He currently handles "By His Grace" public relations, events coordinator and website administrator. He is originally from Union City, TN. where he began singing at 6 years old at Union City Church of God. He was previously employed with the State of Tennessee in Nashville before going fulltime with "By His Grace" in August 2002. We give God all glory, praise and honor! We thank Him for giving us this opportunity to serve Him through music, song and sharing the Word. We look forward to the many opportunities ahead to serve Him. We only want to be an instrument for the master's use! God bless you and keep us in your prayers. "By His Grace"
