Our staff recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.


Dan Greene, Senior Pastor

Pastor Dan is a native of Granite Falls; he has received both a MA and BA from Master’s of Divinity and is also a graduate of Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute. He is married to his best friend, Robin, and they have four children and ten grandchildren. His goal as pastor is to lead the people of God to a greater knowledge and deeper relationship with the Lord, by feeding the Word of God and shepherding
their hearts; to better equip the saints to accomplish His work and purposes, and to share with the unsaved how to find real life and true freedom. (2 Peter 3:18)


Cynthia Gonzalez, Administrative Secretary
We are pleased to have Cynthia Gonzalez, as our administrative secretary. She had big shoes to fill and she has done it well. Cynthia and Mike, her
husband since Feb. 1973, have been welcome members to our congregation since June 2017. They moved here that same year from California. Cynthia and Mike have two Sons, Michael Jr and Matthew and four grandchildren. She worked in the medical field for 26 years before retiring to North Carolina. She has a real heart in serving the Lord in
this position. When I think of a verse that fits her
well is Col. 3:23 – “And whatever you do, do it
heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.” She gives
her very best to the Lord and this Church.
