Children and Family Pastor, Chris Grauso

Chris and Polly have been married for 15 years. They have two very active boys; JT who is 15 and Mitchell who is 8.  In addition to being an active Deacon, Chris has served as Youth Pastor at Carrollton First Baptist Church in Carrollton, GA, Macedonia Baptist Church in Raleigh, N.C., and New Victoria Baptist Church, in Woodstock, GA. Chris has participated in numerous other local ministry/missionary projects. However, his mission-minded work is not limited to local ministry; Chris has served on International Mission Teams that have traveled to India, Portugal, and Mexico.  Our Children's ministry focuses on discipling kids who will, in turn, impact their friends, families, and world for Jesus Christ!


Chris and his family are honored to serve the Church's future leaders and want to team up with families (parents) as we teach our young kids the truth in God's Word.  Our God is bigger than the problems we are facing and the problems your kids will face.  Let's commit to being Deuteronomy 6 parents and be intentional to teach our children as we go through life together. 


4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
