Meet Our Pastor

 
Dr. Chris Gray
 
It is an absolute joy to have you come and visit our church’s website in order to get to know us a little better. I would like to take this opportunity for you to get to know me, my family, and the calling God has placed on my life as a pastor.
 
The Lord called me to follow Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord at the age of twelve. He later confirmed His calling on my life at the age of sixteen to serve Him as a minister of the gospel.
 
The Lord blessed me in 1995 by having my wife, Cherie, join me on the journey of serving Him. We have served in full-time ministry since 1995 in various ministry settings including youth ministry and pastoring churches in Tennessee, Kentucky, and South Carolina. He has since given us two beautiful children, Caleb and Callie, who both love God and serve Him. Cherie, Caleb, and I love University of Tennessee football and basketball, whereas Callie likes another team with a different shade of orange, the Clemson Tigers. We enjoy every opportunity we have to spend together. My personal interests are reading, drawing, and all things Disney.
 
My philosophy of ministry is pretty much the same as what I understand the Christian life to be: Love God, love People, and love both by serving others. I believe that we are to make disciples by loving people where they are and seeking to help them fulfill their purpose of glorifying God and enjoying Him forever. Our goal for ourselves and others is to become mature followers of Jesus Christ who in turn will seek to make even more disciples.
 
It is my joy to serve God by serving others and if I can serve you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
 
In His grip,
Pastor Chris
