Adam Griffin’s desire to make disciples in East Dallas merged with The Village Church’s desire to plant churches, and Eastside Community Church was born.
The leaders of The Village Church have felt a growing conviction to see the gospel go forth in DFW and beyond by planting churches near and far. This includes a church in East Dallas, where hundreds of individuals and families from The Village already reside.
Over the last several years, God has given Adam Griffin a burden to lead a local church on the side of town where he lives. As a pastor and long-time resident of East Dallas, Adam’s heart has grown heavy to see the gospel invade this beautiful, influential community that so desperately needs the Lord. With 15 years in ministry, having served at The Village Church for the last six years, we believe God has been preparing Adam and his family to plant Eastside Community Church.
Meet the Griffins
Adam and his wife, Chelsea, have been married since 2010, and God has blessed them with three incredible sons: Oscar, Gus and Theodore. Adam has been in ministry for almost half his life and served as a family minister, student minister, school teacher, Young Life leader, speaker and, for the last five years, as an elder, pastor and executive at The Village Church. He has completed a Master’s in Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, a Certificate of Youth and Family Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary and a Doctorate of Educational Ministry in Executive Leadership at Southern Seminary.
Until Eastside has a board of Elders, it will be governed by a temporary decision making board made up of launch team members.
