About Us


My wife and I have created this site as a tool to introduce our readers to Christ and take them deeper into a personal relationship with Him. Here, you will find articles on salvation, discipleship, God’s attributes, apologetics, spiritual warfare, the spiritual disciplines, and much more. The Church world has become adept at making converts but very deficient at making disciples. We at Captured by Grace hope to stem the tide of “cheap grace”, the root of the problem, that has infected the Church. Dietrich Bonhoeffer remarked years ago, “Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession, absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the Cross, grace without Jesus Christ.”

WE ARE

William and Melani Vickers – Associate Pastors at Shepherd House Family Church in Wills Point, Texas. We have been in the ministry in some capacity for over 30 years. We were youth pastors for 18 of those years. We were pastors of our own church and have been associate pastors at several others. We have two grown sons, two lovely daughter-in-laws, and two precious grandchildren.
