MICHAEL GRACY – OLATHE, KS (913) 780-2491


Mike’s rich heritage of farming and ranching helps him connect with a wide variety of people. He has the western spirit in his soul and longs for the days of old when all work was done from the back of a horse. He still says even at the age of 56. “When I grow up I want to be a cowboy”. Though he would rather be on a ranch living the cowboy lifestyle he knows that is not God’s plan for him right now. Although Mike says there is always hope, and hope turns into faith, and he has faith someday he will be back in the saddle again.

Attended Arkansas City Community Jr. College on a football Scholarship and graduated with an Associate Arts Degree, attended Wichita State University. Married his high school sweetheart, and has been married for 36 yrs to Sandy. Has a Daughter Dawn who is married to Kirk Howell and rancher/farmer. They have 7 children. Justin his son is a Railroad Engineer like his Dad and plays a mean set of drums. He and his wife Jodi have 2 children and one on the way. Mike grew up on a farm/ranch operation and comes from a long line of rancher, farmer, stockmen, rodeo performers, horsemen, muleskinners and cattle traders. He has ran his own cattle, horse, and farm operation. Trained horses for ranch use and even trained a few running quarter horses. Has showed cutting horses against some of the best in the cutting world. Had his own horseshoeing business for 15 years. Has worked on some big ranches in OK, and KS. as a day worker and even tried his hand at ranch rodeos. His dad bought him his first guitar when he was 14. Played in bands during high school and college for extra money. Got out of music for about 25 years.

In February of 1999 after 30 years of heavy social drinking, poor choices, bad decisions and lots of traveled rocky roads, and a fight in a Texas bar. Michael Gracy fell to his knees and in one simple prayer that God answered he ended up in a 30 day alcohol treatment facility. Now five years later he has a full time Cowboy Music Ministry, and is trying to make a difference by helping other hard living unchurched members of society to avoid the rocky roads he traveled. He feels if we could accept the spirituality of religion and forget about living up to the letter of religious law that we wouldn’t need to use artificial means to feel good about ourselves and to escape life’s problems. His music is his testimony, and tries to live is life as an example. Sort of a Living Sermon ya might say. He says “Ya never know we just might be the only sermon someone sees.” He started singing and playing his guitar in church. At the request of his pastor he started writing his own songs. The pastor told him he had a style all of his own and needed to write his own songs and tell about how God has Graced his life. So for the first time in a long time he took some advice, and after many a rough traveled road he has turned his life into a full time Music Ministry. He holds Cowboy Church Services in small communities across OK, KS, New Mexico, TX, Missouri, and TN, says he’s even been asked back to several places!!! Mike says “I want to make a difference in the world we live in to spread the Grace of God and the Love of Jesus Christ, and maybe I can help some ole cowboy avoid some of the trails I went down to get back into a relationship with God. I just want to leave this ole world in better shape than what I found it in.”

What people are saying about Michael Gracy:

Tony Horsley, Pastor: United Methodist Churches of Burdett and Rozel, KS.

“Mike Gracy’s testimony from a Christian home to the brink of total loss and defeat to victory through God’s grace, is a living monument to God’s grace and transforming power. Mike’s music is from his heart. His words are from a personal journey down “rocky roads” until his acceptance of God’s love put him on the “Red Sea Road”. Mike will cause your funny bone to vibrate with laughter then move you to an ache as you journey with him as he struggles to find elusive answers, then your spirit will swell to bursting as you share his victory through Christ Jesus. I know of no one but Mike Gracy whose story will carry you through such a vivid journey climaxing in revealing his NEW LIFE in CHRIST!!! Mike’s music is heart-bom and heart stirring—His story inspiring! His life is a joy. Once you have met Mike and his awesome wife. Sandy, and experienced his message in music and word- You Will NEVER EVER be the Same.”
