Shannon Foote, Pastor  

Pastor Shannon is a native of Louisiana. He and his family love our church and community almost as much as they love the Lord and each other. In 2006 he married our wonderful first lady, Mrs. Allison (Theriot) Foote, and they have two children, Jackson and Mackinley. His approach to ministry is simple: “Honor God”. On a regular basis, our church family is reminded to make those two words the focus of our lives.
God allowed him to grow up in a pastor’s home; in fact, he was preceded in the pastorate of our church by his father, Craig Foote. He graduated from Hyles-Anderson College in 2007, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Assistant Pastoral Theology.  He is a product of Grace Baptist Church and School, having graduated from Grace Baptist Academy in 2003. Pastor Shannon has been working with teenagers most of his adult life, both in college and in his previous position as Youth Pastor at Oakwood Baptist Church in Flowery Branch, GA.  He became an assistant pastor at Grace in 2010, and he accepted the call to become Senior Pastor in 2014.  In the years that he has led our church we have seen our attendance record raised numerous times, thousands have trusted the Lord as Saviour, and hundreds of believers have been baptized and joined in fellowship with the church family.
