Our Pastor....


      OUR PASTOR .......

Pastor Joseph Griffis, a Pastor's son, was born in Alabama and spent several years in Somerset, KY.  He and his wife Hope, a Pastor's daughter, were married in 2002 and have six children, Faith, Harmony, Jud, Silas, Marshall and Mercy.

Brother Griffis accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in the summer of 1991 and answered God's call to preach when he was 21 years old. Shortly after, he moved to Salem, West Virginia, to serve in the youth ministry of Lighthouse Baptist Church.

After a year, Bro. Joseph moved to Tallahassee, FL, to help his former pastor at Gospel Light Baptist Church, serving the Lord nearly four years, working with teens, in the bus ministry, Patch the Pirate Club, and the Junior Church there.



During the time in Florida the Lord began to turn his heart toward pastoring. 

In June of 2007 Bro. Joseph accepted the call from Grace Baptist Church in Mountain City. God blessed the church abundantly in growth and spirituality. Bro. Joseph has a Pastor's heart and a genuine love for his people.

On August 12th, 2009, Johnson County Baptist merged along with Grace Baptist, and Mountain City Baptist Church was organized and chartered, calling Bro. Griffis as the founding Pastor. 

Pastor Griffis and the folks of Mountain City Baptist invite you to visit with us, you'll receive a friendly hand shake and a warm welcome......Guaranteed !
