Head of the Family - Leadership
Pastors Brad and Pam Fussell
Brad and Pam Fussell's marriage and service to God began in 1975 as Children's, Outreach, and Bus Pastors in Texas and have been joyfully serving the Lord together ever since. They pastored in Georgia before serving as foreign missionaries in Mexico City bringing in doctors and dentists as well as planting churches. They then moved back to Georgia where they have served in various pastoral roles. This has given them a heart for missions and missionaries and supporting the great commission in every way possible.
They accepted the pastoral position at First Assembly in 2000 and haven't looked back. Their heart for their flock is seen immediately. As family, their heart leaps for those who rejoice and it breaks for those who mourn. They cover us in prayer and walk with us through it all. They are loved and adored by the congregation and we are thankful to call them our friends.
Pastor Brad is the Lead Pastor, and with the help of the elder board, he oversees the church. Pastor Pam is the Connections Pastor helping new people become a part of the family and with the help of her team she heads up Women's Ministries.
