About Us

Ryan Grabill is the lead pastor at Sound House Church. He and his wife Anna have four children: Beau, Ava, Sophia and Jackson. Their life together began in Grand Rapids, Michigan where they met and got married. Ryan began his career in ministry in 2000 as a youth pastor and has since held positions from youth pastor to executive team pastor in five churches across four different states. In 2013, they felt the call to move to Long Beach and plant a local church with the hopes to meet the needs of the community. With this simple mission in mind, God has established the church they always dreamed to have the privilege of leading. The community of Sound House has become their California family and has been a huge blessing in their lives. The Grabills enjoy doing life together as a family and they enjoy bike rides, board games, and eating dinner together as a family. Being a transplant in new state has it’s challenges for any family but it’s the friendships through Sound House that have made Long Beach feel like home. Ryan is currently attending Antioch Seminary.

Chad Frontiera is the associate pastor of Sound House Church. He and his wife Sarah grew up in the Long Beach area. While attending Point Loma in San Diego he began his ministry as a youth pastor. After spending five years of building and developing a student ministries program, he felt called to Long Beach and has been an integral part in planting Sound House. Chad is a graduate of Fuller Seminary. Chad and his lovely wife, Sarah, live in Lakewood with their daughters Zoey and Sloane, and their dog Kona

Our Mission

We gather as the body of Christ to grow personally and spiritually and to go forth as ambassadors for the Kingdom.


Matthew 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered in My name, there am I among them."

Our goal: We gather to continually grow in and reflect the light of Christ in the world around us.


Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Hebrews 6:1 Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity.

Our goal: We are called to grow in our faith personally and as a church body so we become a more mature representation of Jesus.


Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Our goal: To represent the name Ambassador for Christ in our lives. Together we actively participate in God's plan of kingdom expansion and restoration of the world. Jesus left us with the command to go into the world, not to leave it.
