Our Team

1Joey & Laura Williams- Senior Pastor 
 
Joey has a heart to see people not only come to believe in God, but actually grow to know Him personally. Imagine a world where Gods people dropped dry religion and exchanged it for an exciting adventure of hearing Gods voice, obeying it and experiencing His love in an ever fresh way. Joey serves as a Pastor at House of Grace in Cochran, Georgia. He has served in ministry since 2000 in roles including; Youth Pastor, Worship Pastor, Associate Pastor and as of February 2012, Senior Pastor. His first and foremost ministry is to his beautiful wife Laura and his five precious daughters (Jilian, Riley, Hope, Jolie and Hosanna). Next, he serves House of Grace as a gifted speaker, disciple maker, counselor, trainer and songwriter. He also has a heart for missions and has ministered in the Philippines, India, Mexico, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
 
Laura is an anointed worship leader and singer. She is also an experienced teacher, counselor and mentor with a wealth of wisdom. She is the secret to Pastor Joey's success!   
 
2Larry & Virginia Williams- Founding Pastor
 
Larry is the founding pastor of this great ministry. Under his leadership, the church has grown from 6 members in a storefront building in 2001 to our current membership in a 16,000 square foot facility. In 2010, he also partnered with Pastor Ken Land to foster the merger of My Fathers House and Christ Chapel. This was a ground breaking move of unity, vision and humility never before seen in Cochran, Georgia. Virginia (whom we lovingly call “Mama V”) is also a mighty woman of God. She is a proven speaker, counselor and administrator and has given her all to        promote the spiritual health of the House of Grace members.
