Pastor Kevin Grissom is the lead pastor at the Blackshear Church of God. Through out his 40+ years of pastoral leadership with the Church of God, he has served as State Youth Director in Alaska and Illinois, spoken at several state camp meetings and has ministered internationally in Korea, the Philippines and Haiti.

God has brought Pastor Grissom through many trails and tribulations in his life, giving him a deep compassion for the sick, broken hearted and bound.“Being healed from cancer not once, but twice, has given me ‘Victorious, Ridiculous Faith’ to believe that God can do anything,” says Pastor Grissom. “God is no respecter of persons and what He has done for me He can do for you too.”
