Our youth are not just a side group who are waiting until they are out of High School to become part of "big people church." They are equal partners in ministry and work in ministry within the church and in local and international mission work, and they have the lead in National Mission work.  We also partner with other churches and give to the Baptist North American Missions Board.

Each Summer, our youth go to service oriented camps throughout the United States to give to others and meet their needs practically while sharing their hope in Jesus. Contact us to find out more about serving as a missionary here in the US or about chaperoning our awesome youth partners in ministry.

We also have two of our members that have planted churches to spread the Gospel in other cities in the United States.

Exodus Church

Exodus Church in Charlotte, NC is a modern church meeting in a movie theater to reach those who might not come to a traditional church building. Exodus Church is a community of Christ followers that exist to transform lives into disciples of Jesus Christ.

Community is crucial.  We are made to be in relationship with others.  Exodus Church seeks to be a community of those who are in bondage, those who desire to be free and those who have been freed.  All are welcomed and valued in the community at Exodus Church.  We do this through community groups scattered throughout our region that are welcoming, intentional and our primary place of care.

What I do

  • Pastor, Freedom Valley Church

My Job
I joined the staff and faith family at FBC in March of 2014. I get the awesome experience of hanging with teens and teaching them about Jesus Christ. Leading and equipping students to follow Jesus in a world that would tell them otherwise is a great privilege, and I take the challenge seriously.

About Me

My background
I am married to my lovely wife Rachel and we have 3 beautiful kids. I met Christ at the age of 16 and have been working in youth ministry for years. I was born in South Carolina, but was raised in Mississippi and am now in the process of planting my roots in Georgia soil.

Why I Follow Christ
I follow Jesus because He gave me hope when I was hopeless. Jesus is the only hope.

Sports…Music…Movies…and Jesus.

Freedom Valley church in Surprise, AZ is a growing church reaching those in the Phoenix area with the life changing message of Jesus. Join the Griffin family along with First Baptist Church Woodstock, North America Mission Board, Arizona Baptist Convention, and the Arizona Central Baptist Association, while we cooperate our efforts to plant a church in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona. Freedom Valley Church will be located in the west valley of Phoenix called Surprise, Arizona. A cooperative effort is the only way the mission of reaching the Metro Phoenix area with the gospel is going to be accomplished.

Freedom Valley Church is established to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ and invite others to enter into a relationship with Him. We believe that once a person enters into a relationship with Christ they need to be connected to other believers. Freedom Valley provides a community environment, which ensures a safe place to grow and serve the Lord Jesus. The ultimate desire of Freedom Valley Church is to reproduce itself by making disciples in Arizona and around the world.


Volunteering is fun and rewarding as well as a way to give back to God what is His.

Let's get together!
