Claire Akin – Women’s Ministry Leader

Women’s ministry is an opportunity for women of all ages to grow closer to the Lord and build lasting relationships with others here at GraceBuilt Church. Throughout the year the women go on retreats and gather occasionally at each other’s homes for prayer and fellowship.

Claire Akin serves as the Women’s Ministry Leader at GraceBuilt Church. She is wife to Pastor Josh and mother of their two children, Micah and Chloe. Claire grew up in Northern Virginia and after completing medical school and residency at UVA moved to Waynesboro with Josh in 2005. Claire has a heart to encourage women to fall more in love with Jesus and to study the Word of God and apply it to their lives. She is a homeschooling mom and part-time family medicine physician.  She  likes to hike and bike as a family as well as read.  Claire has studied abroad as a college student in Japan, worked in Japan, and met her husband, Josh, in Japan.  She loves to draw women into closer relationships with Jesus.
