Davis James

student pastor

I spent my early years in the big city of Jefferson, GA. Since 2004, I have made my home here in the great city of Griffin. Since accepting the call on my life, I have had the awesome privilege of serving as Student Pastor here at my home church beginning January, 2017. My heart longs to see students take the step to follow Jesus and to live a spirit-filled life. My goal for The Point Student Ministry is to create an environment where everyone feels like family. We always encourage our students to succeed and provide opportunities for students to serve in ministry as they follow Jesus. We all come to "The Point" where we have to make that life changing decision to follow Christ and my hope is that it happens here for the students of GCPC.
