On September 14, 2014, Grace Baptist Church recognized God's calling John Turner to come as our new Outreach Pastor with a 98% vote!
John has an undergrad degree in Biology from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC and a Master of Divinity from Bob Jones University. He has served as a campus missionary with Cross Impact at University Baptist Church in Clemson, SC for three years and then as the pastoral intern at Harvest Baptist in Rock Hill, SC for the last two.
Ania grew up as a pastor's daughter in Poland. She came to know Christ as her Savior at an early age and began sharing her faith with her friends at her predominantly Catholic school. As a teenager Ania translated Evangelism Explosion into Polish and used it to share the Gospel. Later she became the director of Evangelism Explosion for the country of Poland. After completing her undergraduate work in Poland, the Lord directed Ania to Bob Jones University where she completed a masters degree in counseling.
John and Ania both have a heart for evangelism and discipleship. They have seen many college students come to Christ and grow into committed disciples.
Welcome, John and Ania. We're excited to have you join the pastoral team at Grace!
