Billy Grate has a zeal to bring restoration to broken family relationships. He believes that the only hope for the generation today is for men to take their rightful place in the family structure.
His desire is to bring healing to those who have been wounded by the circumstances of life. He knows that one of the greatest challenges of today is to combat illiteracy, especially among those who are considered to be at risk. He believes that no matter who they are, every person is vitally important. His greatest passion is that people would know the love of Christ.
Billy and his wife, Thelma, have eight children that they are extremely proud of and thankful for. In 1991, he and Thelma founded and still pastor a ministry, Body of Christ Family Church, in Red Oak, TX.
