LEAD ELDER - JOHNNY BEST (BOARD)
What's up? I'm Johnny Best. I've been married for 10 years to Janice and we have two amazing girls with another one on the way. Go #TeamEstrogen! I serve as the lead elder (senior pastor) of City Grace Church. I am passionate about helping others choose to learn from Jesus in every area of their life. As typical of small churches, I wear many hats. (So do many of our other leaders) My main goal is to teach God's Word, disciple people to become disciple makers and help the church both corporately and individually live out the vision and mission God has given us.
When not preaching or leading groups, you may find me golfing, watching movies, spending time with my family, laying in my hammock or camping. Have you ever camped in a hammock? Talk to me about it... it's amazing!
My favorite Bible verse(s) has to be 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 - "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."
I would love to meet you, maybe grab some coffee or what not. Send me a message, let's get in touch.
