Rev. nathan silver

Senior Pastor

I am a Mitchell County native. I am married to Jessica and we have two daughters Grace and Lida. I am passionate about my Savior and His Bride, the Church. I love spending time with my wife and daughters and being in the great outdoors. I love preaching the Word of God and gathering with Saints in worshiping our Savior.

Rev. Gene Self

Youth Pastor

I have been doing youth ministry at Grassy Creek since 2005. I served as full-time Associate/Youth Pastor until May 2017, when I stepped into my current part-time position of Associate/Youth Pastor. I have had the privilege of working with many wonderful people over that time. I enjoy seeing our youth grow deeper in their faith and use their talents to glorify God. I am married to Denise and we have two children, Austyn and Laurel. I am a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan and enjoy watching sports, reading and playing music.

Ben & Cindy Ollis

Church Custodians

We serve as the custodian team here at GCBC.  We live here in the Grassy Creek Community.  We were high school sweethearts whom the Lord Brought back together after many years apart.  The Lord has blessed our blended family with a daughter, a son and five wonderful grandchildren, three girls and two boys.  Not only did the bring us back to each other, He also brought us back here to GCBC.  Ben's father served as the custodian here for many years when Ben was a young boy.  Ben spent his boyhood days following his dad's footsteps and working in the church.  We both feel that the Lord's house has a testimony all it's own.  We desire to serve the Lord and for His house to show the world our love for Him.  We love the Lord and His church.  If we can be of service to you in any way, please contact the church office and they will reach out to us.
