Ries Barlow, Associate Pastor

Pastor Barlow comes to us from Greenville, South Carolina.  Having completed his undergraduate and Seminary work at Bob Jones University, he and his wife, Christine, felt God’s call to Grace Bible Church in June of 2021.  While newer to Grace, Pastor Barlow is not new to ministry.  He and his family have fit seamlessly into the framework of the church and minister in various capacities (primarily providing the secondary preaching/teaching ministry and care group coordination in the church).

Trent and his wife, Missy, have been an integral part of the ministry of Grace Bible Church since their graduation from college at Bob Jones University and return to the area to minister with Trent’s family.  Trent serves not only as a deacon, but also the Youth Ministry Leader of the church and the church treasurer.  Missy is the primary church pianist.

Frank Behr, Deacon

Frank and his wife, Lonnie, have been long time members of Grace Bible Church.  Frank has faithfully served as not only a deacon, but also as the church Secretary and Sunday School Superintendent.  He is an integral part of the education of church membership through the various Sunday School ministries.
