“God placed the longing for eternal home in every human heart,” says Shelley Breen, founding member of one of Christian music’s most impactful groups of all time, Point of Grace. “Some people search for it their entire lives.”
For Shelley, Denise Jones and Leigh Cappillino, who comprise the multi-platinum trio Point of Grace, that lifelong search has been captured in song, logged in thousands of miles on the road and shared with countless individuals around the world. As a group, it’s a journey that’s 20 years in and 13 albums deep, punctuated with 27 #1 songs, 13 Dove Awards, two GRAMMY nominations, career album sales in excess of 7 million with multiple Platinum and Gold certifications, making them one of the Top 10 best-selling artists in the history of Contemporary Christian music.
But to stop there is to capture only a single dimension of these multi-talented women. All three are wives. All three are mothers. Their children range in age from teens to two. And while their humility leads them to downplay the complexity of juggling career and family—“We’ve been through all the things that artists go through,” Shelley says. “Getting married, having kids...—it’s their ministry and heart for those they encounter along the way that continually sets them apart.
“The thing that propels us on,” Shelley continues, “is that we love God and we love to serve people. I think that’s one of the things that’s given us longevity and invitations to come back.”
Concert attendance is free. Buffet and Saturday stay guests are given preferred seating. Register online or over the phone for tickets.
