Word

Point of Grace Formed:

It all started in Norman, OK when Denise (Masters) Jones, Heather Floyd and Terry Lang started singing together as the Oauchitones in 1991 at a Baptist University in Arkansas.

Point of Grace Members:

  • Shelley Breen
  • Denise Jones
  • Leigh Cappillino

 

  • Heather Payne left the group in July 2008 to spend more time with her family.
    Terry Jones left the group in 2004 to spend more time with her husband and three children.

Point of Grace Biography:

After Shelley Phillips joined the group, they changed their name to Say So and then the real journey began. During a visit to The Christian Artists Seminar in the Rockies, the ladies met John Mays from Word Records, who later signed them. Fast forward 17 years and 14 albums and you've got a group who has sold over five million albums, won 9 Dove Awards, gotten two Grammy nods, written 8 books and garnered two platinum and five gold records as well as 27 consecutive No. 1's.

They've seen some personnel changes in those years. In 2004 after giving birth to her third child, Terry Jones left the group to spend more time with her family. The group's guitar player/band leader, Dana Cappillino, saw his wife Leigh join the group in Terry's spot. In 2008 Heather Payne left the group to spend more time with her own family.

Through it all, the ladies of Point of Grace have felt a pull toward helping teenage girls. In 2002, that pull officially became known as the Girls of Grace project. A devotional book, a workbook, a journal and an album came out first, followed by yearly Girls of Grace conferences.

The ladies also support Mercy Ministries of America and Compassion International.
